Jake Arrieta: Makes retirement announcement
Arrieta announced Monday on Barstool Sports' "Pardon My Take" podcast that he's decided to retire after a 12-year career in the big leagues, ESPN.com reports. "Well, I haven't signed the papers, man, but I'm done. It's time for me to step away from the game," Arrieta said. "At some point the uniform goes to somebody else and it's just my time, really."
Arrieta's retirement comes as little surprise following a rough 2021 campaign with the Cubs and Padres in which he posted a 7.39 ERA and 1.77 WHIP across 24 starts. Though his performance had been steadily trending down since his first stint with the Cubs ended after the 2017 season, Arrieta was arguably MLB's top starting pitcher from 2014 through 2016. He threw two no-hitters during that stretch, took home the 2015 National League Cy Young Award after submitting a 1.77 ERA across 229 innings that season and earned his lone All-Star appearance in 2016 before he helped the Cubs end an 108-year championship drought that fall. Arrieta retires with a lifetime 115-93 record and 3.98 ERA over 285 appearances between the Orioles, Cubs, Phillies and Padres.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Jake Arrieta: DFA'd by San Diego
Arrieta (groin) was designated for assignment by the Padres on Tuesday.
Arrieta exited Sunday's start against the Cardinals with a strained right groin, and he won't make another start for San Diego. The 35-year-old was picked up in mid-August after being let go by the Cubs, and he surrendered 15 runs on 18 hits in 12.1 innings across his four starts with the Padres while also spending some time on the injured list....

Padres' Jake Arrieta: Dealing with groin injury
Arrieta was diagnosed with a right adductor strain after leaving Sunday's start against the Cardinals.
The veteran right-hander recorded one out during the first inning before being lifted with the injury, and he was charged with five runs (four earned) on three hits and a walk. Arrieta missed some time a few weeks ago with a hamstring injury, and he's now managing the groin issue. It's unclear if the injury will affect his next turn through the rotation.... See More ...

Padres' Jake Arrieta: Exits with trainer
Arrieta exited Sunday's game against the Cardinals after a third of an inning with an apparent injury, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.
It's unclear what injury Arrieta is dealing with. He allowed five runs (four earned) on three hits and a walk while recording just one out. Arrieta should be considered day-to-day until further updates.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Jake Arrieta: Can't escape fourth inning
Arrieta (5-13) was tagged with the loss Tuesday against the Giants after allowing three runs on five hits and two walks while fanning three across 3.2 innings.
Arrieta has had a woeful season and hasn't been able to turn things around since being acquired by the Padres last month. The veteran hurler has allowed at least three earned runs in each of his last five appearances dating back to his time with the Cubs as well, and he owns an 8.25 ERA through three outings with San Diego....

Padres' Jake Arrieta: Limits Houston to four baserunners
Arrieta went five innings in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Astros, allowing three runs on three hits and a walk with three strikeouts. He didn't factor into the decision.
Making his second start with his new team after returning from injury, Arrieta was rolling early before surrendering a Carlos Correa home run that scored all three runs charged to Arrieta. It took the veteran righty just 64 pitches to make it through five frames and he was most likely pulled as a result of throwing only 11.1 big-league innings over the past month.... See More ...

Padres' Jake Arrieta: Reinstated prior to start
Arrieta (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list prior to Friday's start against the Astros, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Arrieta suffered a hamstring strain in his Padres debut Aug. 18, but he'll be back in action following an absence of just over two weeks. The right-hander has struggled across his last five starts and has posted a 13.76 ERA and 2.71 WHIP in 17 innings.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Jake Arrieta: Likely back Friday
Manager Jayce Tingler said he expects Arrieta (hamstring) to start Friday against the Astros, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
It was previously reported that the veteran right-hander was expected to return from the injured list this weekend, and it appears he'll rejoin the rotation for Friday's series opener. Arrieta surrendered five runs over 3.1 innings during his Padres debut before exiting with the hamstring strain.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Jake Arrieta: Could return this weekend
Arrieta (hamstring) is expected to be activated for this weekend's series versus Houston, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
Arrieta went down with a strained left hamstring during his first start with San Diego, but he has since been able to toss bullpen sessions and appears to be nearing a return. The veteran hurler has struggled with a 7.13 ERA and 1.78 WHIP across 89.2 innings -- mostly with the Cubs -- this season, but Padres manager Jayce Tingler said Monday that Arrieta is likely to come back as a starter despite a slew of upcoming team off days, per 97.3 The Fan....

Padres' Jake Arrieta: Completes bullpen session
Arrieta (hamstring) threw a bullpen session Saturday and could return to the Padres in early September, MLB.com reports.
The right-hander exited with a mild hamstring strain during his first start with San Diego on Aug. 18, but it appears that the injury won't keep him out of action for an extended period. However, Chris Paddack (oblique) is nearing a return to the rotation and the Padres have two off days both this week and next, so it's not certain that Arrieta will be needed as a starter when he's able to rejoin the club....

Padres' Jake Arrieta: Placed on 10-day IL
Arrieta was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain Friday, retroactive to Aug. 19.
Arrieta suffered a mild left hamstring strain in Wednesday's start against Colorado and will miss at least one turn through the rotation. The right-hander struggled in the appearance, as he allowed five runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out three in 3.1 innings, so he isn't guaranteed a spot in the Padres' rotation when he returns to full health....

Padres' Jake Arrieta: Suffers hamstring strain
Arrieta exited Wednesday's start against the Rockies with a mild left hamstring strain, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
A trip to the injured list seems like a decent possibility for the righty, who allowed five runs on seven hits through 3.1 innings in his Padres debut. It's also possible Arrieta gets released, as he showed nothing before the injury to suggest he can solve San Diego's starting pitching woes. An update on his condition and roster status should become available in the next couple days.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Jake Arrieta: Tweaks hammy in Friars debut
Arrieta was removed from his start Wednesday in Colorado in the bottom of the fourth inning with an apparent hamstring injury, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. He worked 3.1 innings and gave up five runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out three in his Padres debut.
Even though Arrieta's second stint with the Cubs ended with him posting a 10.44 ERA over his final 10 starts, the Padres were still willing to bring the veteran right-hander aboard on a one-year deal with the hope that he could eat innings in a San Diego rotation that's been decimated by injuries. However, he lasted just 64 pitches into his inaugural start with San Diego before he became the latest injury casualty. The Padres will presumably send Arrieta in for follow-up tests to determine the extent of his injury, but if it's significant enough to cost him even one turn through the rotation, San Diego could opt to simply churn his 40-man roster spot for another healthy starter available in free agency....

Padres' Jake Arrieta: Contract selected prior to start
Arrieta's contract was selected by the Padres on Wednesday.
Arrieta joined the Padres on a minor-league deal Monday, but he'll serve as an immediate reinforcement in the team's rotation that is dealing with various injuries. The right-hander was released by the Cubs last week after he posted a 10.44 ERA and 2.29 WHIP in 35.1 innings across 10 starts since the beginning of June. Arrieta will face a tough test in his team debut since he'll be forced to pitch at hitter-friendly Coors Field on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Jake Arrieta: Joining Padres
Arrieta agreed to a deal with the Padres on Monday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Arrieta's ERA has risen in six straight seasons and sits at an awful 6.88 through 20 starts this year, a mark which earned him a release from the Cubs last week. That's the sort of number produced by someone who's no longer a viable big-league starter, and it's certainly not a number one would expect to see in a contender's rotation, but the Padres found themselves desperate for innings after Yu Darvish landed on the injured list with a back issue Sunday. Arrieta may suddenly find himself in just about the best situation he could ask for, as he's now pitching for a strong team in one of the league's best pitchers' parks, but his talent level has dropped to the point that he remains uninteresting outside of very deep leagues even in these ideal circumstances....
