Jake Arrieta yielded four runs -- two earned -- in three innings Friday in a loss to the Cardinals.
Arrieta has been very good in five of his eight starts this year and still has a 2.82 ERA, but where did the strikeouts go? He's totaled just 13 in his last five starts. He did fan 10 against the Pirates on April 19, but that's the only time all year that he's struck out more than five. He's going to have to do a little better than that to keep his ERA down.

Jake Arrieta was handed another no-decision despite throwing 7 1/3 scoreless innings against the Mets on Friday.

He was in position for the win before Hector Neris blew the save in the ninth. Arrieta was in control against the scuffling Mets, scattering five hits while walking a pair and striking out five. He’s still not striking out batters at the same rate we’ve seen in the past, but it was an improvement after he struck out two batters in three straight starts coming in. Arrieta now has a 2.59 ERA and 1.06 WHIP through his first seven starts with Philadelphia. He gets the Cardinals on the road next.
May 11 - 10:10 PM

Jake Arrieta pitched six innings of one-run baseball in a no decision against the Nationals on Sunday.

Arrieta allowed just two hits, and he walked two while striking out two. It's a nice bounce back from his awful start on Monday against the Marlins where he couldn't get out of the fourth inning. If there's a concern here, it's that the former Cubs ace isn't missing many bats, as he's had just six strikeouts in his last three starts. The ERA sits at a very respectable 3.15, however, and he'll try to miss more bats while having similar results against the Mets on Friday.
May 6 - 5:28 PM

Jake Arrieta surrendered six earned runs over 3 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Marlins.

Arrieta issued two walks and gave up eight hits in the ugly 79-pitch outing at Marlins Park in Miami. His season ERA jumped from 1.82 to 3.49. The veteran right-hander will try to get back on track Sunday against the Nationals.
Apr 30 - 10:59 PM

Jake Arrietta allowed three runs -- one earned -- in seven innings and collected a win against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

The Phillies made three errors behind him but Arrieta stayed poised and held it together like a veteran should. He scattered four hits and two walks while notching just two strikeouts. He walked in one run and allowed two more on a pair of sacrifice flies. He moves to 3-0 with a stellar 1.82 ERA in his first season with his new club.
Apr 26 - 12:53 AM

Jake Arrieta struck out 10 over seven scoreless innings as the Phillies shut out the Pirates 7-0 on Thursday.

Arrieta was nothing short of dominant, allowing just one hit while walking two in his seven innings of work. He had it all working -- breaking pitches, fastball, location. It was easily his best start of the year to date, improving his record to 2-1 with a strong 2.04 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 16/6 K/BB ratio in 17 2/3 innings. A meeting with the Diamondbacks is on tap for Arrieta and the Phils on Wednesday.
Apr 19 - 11:22 PM

Jake Arrieta yielded three runs (two earned) on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings in Saturday's win over the Rays.

Arrieta was given a huge cushion to work with following a six-run second inning from his offense, and he capitalized without any real measure of drama. The Rays touched the veteran right-hander up for a pair of runs in the fourth inning and one more in the sixth, but were otherwise unable to break through on his watch. Arrieta finished the contest having struck out one and walked two and has now surrendered six runs (five earned) on 10 hits across 10 2/3 innings through his first two outings with his new club. He'll try for another solid showing in a home start against the Pirates next time he takes to the mound.
Apr 14 - 9:08 PM

Jake Arrieta gave up three runs -- all in the first inning -- over four innings in a 6-3 loss to the Marlins on Sunday.

Arrieta got off to a miserable start, giving up a homer to Miguel Rojas and a two-run single to Khalil lee in the first frame. After that, the former Chicago ace was able to settle down, and he didn't allow another run in the next three innings. Expect Arrieta to get off to a better start in his next outing when he takes on Rays on Saturday.
Apr 8 - 4:48 PM

Phillies recalled RHP Jake Arrieta from High-A Clearwater.

Arrieta was optioned before the season in a paperwork move as he worked to get built up more. The veteran right-hander will make his Phillies debut on Sunday against the Marlins.
Apr 8 - 11:02 AM

Phillies optioned RHP Jake Arrieta to High-A Clearwater.

It's just a paperwork move, really. Arrieta is scheduled to debut for the Phillies on April 8. He signed a three-year, $75 million free agent contract with the club on March 12.
Mar 29 - 9:21 AM

Jake Arrieta surrendered four runs and seven hits over three innings Tuesday against the Pirates.

Arrieta will throw in some sort of game in five days, whether it's a sim game or in the minors, and he's expected to make his Phillies debut on April 8.
Mar 27 - 4:25 PM

Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia writes that Jake Arrieta will either be placed on the disabled list or optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley in preparation for his Phillies debut on April 8.

Whatever move it ends up being, it will just be a paper move. Arrieta signed a three-year, $75 million deal with the Phillies earlier this month and needs just a little more time to get stretched out.
Mar 26 - 5:47 PM

Jake Arrieta will make his Phillies debut on April 8 against the Marlins.

Arrieta was a little behind after signing with the Phils on March 12, but he'll just miss a few days of action before being ready to roll. It also suggests he'll be a viable option to start for fantasy teams right away, since they're not rushing him into action. Arrieta's debut will come at home.
Mar 24 - 4:25 PM

Jake Arrieta yielded two runs in two innings and struck out two in his spring debut Thursday against the Tigers.

Arrieta threw 31 pitches today, the same total as he threw in a simulated game on Saturday. That he didn't get stretched out further would seem to make it less likely that he'll start one of the Phillies' first five games, though given that the team has already lost a couple of starters, it's possible they could just give Arrieta the ball for three or four innings with the intention of turning it over to the pen afterwards.
Mar 22 - 6:37 PM

Jake Arrieta threw 31-32 pitches over two innings in a simulated game on Saturday.

The next step in his progression will be to throw around 50-60 pitches, though it remains unclear if that will be in a Grapefruit League setting or not. He may not have enough time to get stretched out for the team's opening series, but it sounds like he'll be ready to take the ball at some point during their first five games.
