Phillies Sign Jake Arrieta to Three-Year Deal

Phillies Sign Jake Arrieta to Three-Year Deal

2015 National League Cy Young Award victor Jake Arrieta is nearing a deal with the Philadelphia Phillies, according to Jon Heyman of Fan Rag Sports. Arrieta becomes Philadelphia's fourth big offseason acquisition along with Pat Neshek, Tommy Hunter, andCarlos Santana. When news broke of the Chicago Cubs' agreement with Yu Darvish, it was believed to be the beginning of a domino effect. Adding a veteran like Arrieta, who has a 2.67 ERA and a 9.1 K/9 during the last four seasons in Chicago, gives a budding Phillies roster a tenacious leader to help them make the jump into the playoffs.

Arrieta's market had dried up in this freaky offseason after going 14-10 with a 3.53 ERA previous year with the Cubs. He went from throwing consistently in the high 90's to hovering more around the low-to-mid 90's last season, according to FanGraphs.

Should Phillies' fans be excited about Jake Arrieta, if these Major League Baseball free agency reports come to fruition? And on an exciting but young Phillies team, he is exactly what they need. The Phillies are the favorites.

The 32-year-old will move to the top of a Phillies rotation that includes promising young arms Aaron Nola and Vince Velasquez but is also filled with question marks. Should Arrieta return to his 2015 or 2016 form then the he will undoubtedly become the biggest steal of the offseason.
