Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Goes seven strong in win over Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (7-5) gave up one run on six hits while striking out three over seven innings in a win over the Marlins on Thursday. He did not issue a walk.

After failing to complete five in back-to-back starts, Arrieta tied a season high with seven innings Thursday, and he did so on just 82 pitches. A second-inning homer off the bat of Marcell Ozuna was all the Marlins could muster against Arrieta. It was a strong performance, but Arrieta has now recorded five strikeouts or fewer in three of his last four starts, and his upcoming two-step includes a daunting road matchup at Washington.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Chased again in fifth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta gave up three runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out seven in 4.2 innings against the Pirates on Saturday.

His miserable season continues, as he failed to get out of the fifth inning for the second start in a row. All the advanced metrics and projection systems point to better days ahead for Arrieta. His 3.82 xFIP and 79:23 K:BB in 73 innings are particularly encouraging indicators. His next start will be Thursday in Miami.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Dealing with cut on thumb
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta has a cut on his right thumb, Patrick Mooney of CSN Chicago reports. "It just comes from throwing -- it's not like he's been cut by a knife or anything," manager Joe Maddon said Monday. "It's just one of those skin issues where your finger actually splits a little bit, so we backed off on his throwing in between starts last time. We'll probably do the same thing this time."

It doesn't sound like the Cubs expect this issue to cost Arrieta time, but they are being proactive, limiting his workload on the side. Arrieta labored through 4.1 innings in Sunday's start against Colorado -- the third time this season he's failed to complete five innings -- with his ERA increasing to 4.68 following the short outing. Much has been made of Arrieta's decreased velocity over the past couple seasons, and his groundball rate is down significantly from a year ago, but his strikeout and walk rates provide some reason for optimism.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Gets no-decision Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (6-4) did not factor into the decision in Sunday's win over the Rockies. He pitched 4.1 innings and allowed four earned runs on five hits and three walks. He struck out three.

After back-to-back quality starts, Arrieta was much less effective in this one. His ERA is up to 4.68 on the season, but his 4.10 FIP and career-best 9.74 K/9 suggest that he should be a bit better than he showed on Sunday, though a return to his 2014 and 2015 form is probably out of the question. He'll face the Pirates on Saturday in his next start, which should be an easier matchup.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Holds Marlins to two hits over six frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (6-4) gave up two runs on two hits and three walks over six innings against the Marlins on Tuesday. He struck out five.

It's been a tough year for Arrieta and those fantasy owners who paid an ace's price to acquire him, but the peripherals paint a far rosier picture than his current 4.46 ERA does. After all, his FIP is nearly a full run lower at 3.57, and Arrieta's sitting on a career-best 10.0 K/9 as well as a career-worst 66.6 percent strand rate. No, he's not the superstar that he was over 2014 and 2015, but Arrieta remains a credible fantasy starter in essentially any format.
