Phillies' Jake Arrieta: Confirmed as Sunday's starter
Arrieta (elbow) has been confirmed as the starter for Sunday's game against the Nationals, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
An x-ray taken Friday also confirmed the diagnosis of a bone spur in in Arrieta's right elbow, but he'll continue with his plan to play through the pain. He hasn't pitched effectively of late, recording a 7.71 ERA and 1.90 WHIP over his last three starts, so the Phillies could quickly pull the plug if Arrieta remains ineffective.
