Jake Arrieta Leaves Start With Shoulder Stiffness

Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Jake Arrieta experienced shoulder stiffness in his Spring Training start vs the Rays Thursday. Arrieta said it is not an injury, and that he isn't concerned. Arrieta will have plenty of time to rest up with MLB suspending Spring Training amid coronavirus fears, but he won't be a very attractive fantasy option when baseball does resume. The veteran righty pitched to a 4.64 ERA last season with a 4.89 FIP and hasn't averaged more than a strikeout per innings since 2015. His fantasy value at this stage of his career is limited to very deep leagues or NL-Only formats.

Jake Arrieta Wild In Spring Start

Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Jake Arrieta pitched four scoreless innings in a Spring Training start against the Tigers Friday. Arrieta didn't allow a hit, but walked four and threw a wild pitch. The veteran righty didn't strike out a batter, which is a continuing trend for Arrieta. His strikeout rate has dropped five straight seasons, bottoming out at 18.5 percent last year. He hasn't averaged more than a strikeout per inning since 2015 and he won't provide much ratio help either as his FIP and SIERA last season were over 4.80. Arrieta's fantasy value is limited to the deepest of leagues or NL-Only.

Jake Arrieta Won't Opt Out Of His Deal

Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Jake Arrieta will not exercise the opt-out clause in his contract after coming off elbow surgery. He's heading into the final year of a three-year, $75 million contract and will earn $20 million in 2020. The right-hander posted an ERA above 4.00 (4.64) for the first time since 2013 and went 8-8 with a 1.47 WHIP and 7.3 K/9 in 135 2/3 innings (24 starts) for the Phils last season. Arrieta is far from the Cy Young winner he was with the Cubs in 2015, but he has a chance to bounce back for fantasy owners if his arm issues are a thing of the past next year. There could be value in Arrieta in the later rounds as pitching depth.
