Jake Arrieta gave up only one run in six innings of work but that was enough to take a loss against the Mets on Saturday.
A bloop single by Wilmer Flores drove in Jeff McNeil in the fourth inning to spell Arrieta's demise in the tight ballgame. The veteran right-hander struck out six batters without issuing a walk and surrendered just four knocks in the quality start. The tough-luck loss drops his record to 9-8 despite a fine 3.25 ERA after 24 starts. His 101:42 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 138 1/3 innings is not very inspiring however, although he's done a good job of keeping the ball in the yard (12 homers allowed on the season). He lines up for an interleague matchup with the Blue Jays on Friday. Aug 18 - 7:38 PM

Jake Arrieta was hit hard in Sunday's loss to the Padres, surrendering five runs on eight hits across his five innings of work.

The right-hander walked two and struck out four on the afternoon. Most of the damage against him was inflicted by one swing, as Freddy Galvis clubbed a grand slam in the third inning. He'll try to get back in the win column when he carries a 3.33 ERA and 1.23 WHIP into Friday's start against the Mets.

Jake Arrieta fired eight scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Monday.

It was a sweltering 111 degrees outside Chase Field at first pitch, but that extreme heat seems mild in comparison to the blistering performance of Arrieta in this one. The 32-year-old righty only struck out four batters, but he scattered three hits and a pair of walks over eight shutout frames. He departed in line for the win, but had to settle for a no-decision after the Phillies bullpen failed to slam the door in the ninth. After a rocky start to his Philadelphia tenure, he has now allowed three runs or less in eight of his last nine starts dating back to June 20. He’s 9-6 with a 3.11 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 91/40 K/BB ratio in 22 starts. He’s slated to face the Padres in San Diego on Sunday.
Aug 7 - 2:57 AM

Jake Arrieta permitted just one run while fanning seven over seven innings in the Phillies' 3-1 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday.

The Phillies fell Monday in spite of Aaron Nola's gem, but they got back in the win column in this one on the strength of Arrieta's fine effort. The veteran right-hander gave up six hits and didn't issue a walk to go along with his seven punchouts. It's just the second time in 21 starts this season that Arrieta didn't walk a batter. He's currently lined up to face the Marlins, Padres and Mets over his next three outings. Yes, please.
Jul 31 - 11:24 PM

Jake Arrieta pitched six innings of three-run ball for a win Wednesday against the Dodgers.

The first of the three runs was unearned. Arrieta has now given up a whopping 17 unearned runs this year, more than a quarter of his total runs allowed (60). The Phillies' defense definitely deserves a high percentage of the blame, but with his strikeout rate way down, Arrieta hasn't been very good at bailing out the guys behind him.
Jul 25 - 4:05 PM

Jake Arrieta allowed five runs -- four earned -- in 3 1/3 innings in a no decision against the Padres on Friday.

Arrieta was fortunate to pick up the no decision, but fortunately for Arrieta, Clayton Richard was worse. He once again was hurt by his defense, but the veteran right-hander allowed six hits and walked three in the shaky outing. Arrieta has now registered a 3.47 ERA, and he’s struck out 74 hitters over 106-plus innings in 16 starts. His next scheduled start comes against the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Jul 20 - 10:28 PM

Jake Arrieta was excellent Friday against the Marlins, allowing just three hits over seven scoreless frames as part of a 2-0 victory.

It was his first scoreless start since May 29. Arrieta walked three and fanned three while inducing 11 grounders. He’s now gone seven innings in back-to-back outings, earning victories in both of them. Arrieta has only fanned 72 batters in 103 innings this season, but he’ll still carry a 3.23 ERA and 1.22 WHIP over 18 starts going into the All-Star break. The Phillies and fantasy owners can’t complain about that.
Jul 13 - 10:08 PM

Jake Arrieta allowed two runs on six hits over seven innings in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

A nice, crisp start for Arrieta, who struck out eight and walked one over his seven innings of work. Colin Moran opened the scoring against him with an RBI single in the first inning and Starling Marte knocked him for a solo home run in the third inning, but otherwise he kept the scoreboard clean on the afternoon. Arrieta will carry a 3.47 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 69/30 K/BB ratio (96 innings) into a road date with the Marlins when he next toes the rubber. He's no longer striking out batters at a particularly impressive rate, but remains a serviceable starter even despite his diminished fantasy value.
Jul 7 - 7:06 PM

Jake Arrieta allowed three runs - two earned - over five innings in a no decision against the Nationals on Sunday.

Arrieta walked two and struck out two. He was once again let down by his defense, as another unearned run came across to score against him. It’s a rather pedestrian start from the veteran right-hander; one that didn’t see him miss many bats, but he didn’t get much help from the defense (again) on Sunday. His season ERA now sits at 3.54, and he’s struck out just 61 hitters in 89 innings. Arrieta starts again on Saturday in a contest with the Pirates.
Jul 1 - 6:14 PM

Jake Arrieta completed an awful June with a clunker versus the Yankees on Tuesday, getting charged with six runs – three earned – over five frames.

A Cesar Hernandez throwing error in the third inning led to three Yankees runs. Arrieta can’t blame this all on his defense, though, as he was battered for nine hits – including a pair of home runs – and a walk while needing 81 pitches to cover his five innings. The veteran right-hander finishes June with a 6.66 ERA over five starts and he has just 59 strikeouts across 84 frames this season. He’s given up a league-high 14 unearned runs already. Arrieta will try to bounce back Sunday against a struggling Nationals offense.
Jun 26 - 10:41 PM

Jake Arrieta allowed three earned runs over six innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Cardinals.

Philly wound up winning this one 4-3 courtesy of a go-ahead home run by Odubel Herrera in the bottom of the seventh inning. Arrieta fared well against every Cardinals hitter other than Yadier Molina, who hit a solo homer in the top of the second and a two-run shot in the top of the sixth. The 32-year-old right-hander has a 3.42 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 54/26 K/BB ratio in 79 innings this season, though he's been a little shakier lately. He'll face the Yankees next in what figures to be a tough test.
Jun 20 - 4:19 PM

Jake Arrieta lasted just 3 1/3 innings while allowing eight runs (four earned) in a loss against the Brewers on Friday.

Arrieta wasn’t at his best, but neither was the Phillies’ defense, as they committed three errors behind him and four errors overall on the night. Scott Kingery made two of them, including a critical one in a five-run second inning. All told, Arrieta allowed seven hits (including a two-run homer to Christian Yelich) while walking two batters and striking out one. He’s yielded 13 runs over his last three starts, boosting his ERA from 2.16 to 3.33 in the process. He’ll try to reverse that trend in a start against the Cardinals next week.
Jun 16 - 12:35 AM

Jake Arrieta wasn't at his best in Saturday's loss to the Brewers, allowing four runs on four hits over his 5 1/3 innings.

Arrieta also issued three walks on the day while striking out four. He served up a two-run homer to Jesus Aguilar in the first inning, then left a pair of runners on base when he departed in the sixth, both of which came around to score. Now 5-4 on the season, he'll carry a 2.97 ERA and 1.18 WHIP into a rematch against these same Brewers in Milwaukee on Friday.
Jun 9 - 4:38 PM

Jake Arrieta allowed five earned runs, eight hits and no walks with four strikeouts over six innings in a loss Sunday in San Francisco.

Arrieta was humming along until getting dinged for five runs in the decisive sixth inning. He had actually staked himself to a 1-0 lead with a solo home run in the third inning, but he gave up five of the eight hits he allowed to turn a great afternoon into a loss. He'll look to rebound at home Saturday against Brent Suter and the Brewers.
Jun 3 - 8:23 PM

Jake Arrieta scattered six hits with two walks and five strikeouts across seven scoreless innings in a victory Tuesday on the road against the Dodgers.

Arrieta threw 62 of his 103 pitches in the outing, yielding just six singles while uncorking one wild pitch. He has been ace-like in the month of May, posting a 2-1 record with a 0.90 ERA and 20 strikeouts over 30 innings in five outings. He'll look to keep up the good work into June, working next Sunday in San Francisco opposite Andrew Suarez.
