Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Takes loss in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (5-8) took the loss Saturday against the Marlins, allowing six runs (four earned) on six hits across three innings. He fanned five and did not issue a walk.

A fielding error by Kris Bryant helped set up a three-run first inning for Miami that was capped off by a two-run long ball by Adam Duvall. A Jose Lobaton passed ball assisted the Marlins in pushing a fourth run across in the second inning before a second two-run homer by Duvall gave Miami a 6-0 lead in the third. While his defense let him down a bit Saturday, the right-hander has now allowed four earned runs in consecutive shaky outings. He'll look to get his first win since May 25 when he takes the ball at some point during next weekend's series at Dodger Stadium.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Shaky against Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (5-7) took the loss Monday against the Mets after allowing four runs on four hits and four walks over five innings. He struck out three.

The veteran has now failed to pitch past five innings in six straight starts, posting a 6.66 ERA, 1.79 WHIP and 22:14 K:BB through 25.2 innings over that stretch. Arrieta hasn't delivered useful fantasy numbers since 2018, and despite his solid April performance, it looks like the current campaign will be no different for the 35-year-old.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Allows one run in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta allowed one run across five innings and did not factor into the decision in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Padres. He gave up four hits and a walk while striking out six.

Arrieta pitched reasonably well and matched San Diego ace Yu Darvish through five innings, though he left with the game tied 1-1. The veteran righty had picked up losses in each of his last two appearances, yielding eight earned runs across just 5.2 combined innings in those starts, so this was a step in the right direction. He'll take a 4.97 ERA into his next scheduled outing Monday against the Mets.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Takes another loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (5-6) was tagged with the loss Friday against the Padres after allowing six runs on six hits and two walks while fanning one across two innings.

This was Arrieta's worst start of the season by a wide margin, as he needed 58 pitches just to complete the first two innings, gave up two homers and allowed six of the eight runs the Cubs allowed during the game. The veteran right-hander has given up four or more runs in three of his last six outings and owns an 8.28 ERA during that stretch, a span in which he's tossed more than five complete innings just once. The veteran will try to bounce back next week in a tough matchup on the road against the Padres.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Takes loss in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (5-5) allowed five runs (two earned) on six hits and four walks over 3.2 innings Sunday, striking out three and taking the loss against Cincinnati.

The Reds jumped on Arrieta right out of the gate, plating three runs in the first inning. He later gave up two more runs in the fourth, including a solo homer by Eugenio Suarez. Arrieta's ERA bumped up to 4.41 as he fell to 5-5 through 10 starts this season. He's projected to face the Giants on the road next weekend.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Picks up fifth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (5-4) recorded the win Tuesday against the Pirates after giving up three runs (two earned) on five hits with seven strikeouts and one walk over five innings.

The veteran righty struggled early as he surrendered all three runs and five hits across the first two frames, but he blanked the Buccos for the rest of the outing. Arrieta has a 4.37 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 38:16 K:BB over 47.1 innings (nine starts) this season.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Takes loss versus Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta dropped to 4-4 after giving up four earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out two over five innings in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Nationals.

Arrieta kept the Nationals off the board for the first two innings, but things were bumpy thereafter. He allowed eight of the final 19 batters he faced to reach base, with Juan Soto's 421-foot solo shot off the Wrigley Field right-field scoreboard in the fifth inning ultimately holding up as the difference in the game. Since opening his second stint with the Cubs with a pair of quality starts, Arrieta has posted a 5.34 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 6.5 K/9 over his subsequent six outings.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Nabs win in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (4-3) picked up the win Friday, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk over six innings in a 4-2 victory over the Tigers. He struck out one.

Both runs scored on solo shots by Jake Rogers and Robbie Grossman, but Arrieta otherwise held the Detroit offense in check. The veteran right-hander was making his first start since April 30 due to a thumb injury and was limited to 78 pitches (47 strikes), but he still came through with his fourth quality start of the year. He'll take a 4.10 ERA and 29:13 K:BB through 37.1 innings into his next outing.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Activated ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (thumb) was activated off the 10-day injured list as expected ahead of his scheduled start Friday against the Tigers, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Arrieta wound up missing just two turns in the rotation with a thumb abrasion. He carried a 2.57 ERA and 1.18 WHIP through his first five starts before allowing seven runs in his most recent outing, which could potentially be blamed on the thumb issue. Jason Adam was optioned in a corresponding move.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Expected to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (thumb) is expected to start Friday's series opener against the Tigers, Jordan Bastian of reports.

Arrieta is throwing a bullpen session Wednesday, and his return to game action is imminent as long as he feels good afterward. Arrieta recorded a 4.31 ERA and 28:12 K:BB in 31.1 innings before he went on the injured list with a right thumb abrasion.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Another bullpen on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (thumb) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday or Wednesday, Maddie Lee of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

The 35-year-old completed a bullpen session Saturday and will retake the mound for another session during the two-game series in Cleveland this week. Arrieta could return from the injured list next weekend against the Tigers when first eligible if he can avoid any setbacks.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Scheduled to throw bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (thumb) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Saturday, Jordan Bastian of reports.

Arrieta was playing catch prior to Saturday's game against the Pirates, and the right-hander is slated throw his second bullpen session in the last three days. Arrieta was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right thumb abrasion Tuesday, but he could return as early as next weekend at Detroit.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Bullpen session on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (thumb) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Thursday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The 35-year-old was bumped from Tuesday's start and landed on the injured list with a right thumb abrasion, but he's isn't expected to be sidelined for long. Arrieta could return next weekend at Detroit after spending the 10-day minimum on the shelf if he avoid any issues during the bullpen session.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Out with thumb issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right thumb abrasion Tuesday, Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Arrieta was lit up for seven runs in just 3.1 innings of work his last time out against the Reds. It's possible the thumb issue was at least partly to blame, as he'd pitched to a 2.57 ERA across his first five starts. The veteran will be eligible to return May 14, though it's not yet clear whether he's expected to do so. The Cubs have three off days before then, so they may be able to get by without an extra starter if his absence is brief, though they'll call on Keegan Thompson for the nightcap of a doubleheader against the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Rocked by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (3-3) took the loss Friday, coughing up seven runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and a walk over 3.1 innings as the Cubs were downed 8-6 by the Reds. He struck out two.

The veteran right-hander lasted only 67 pitches (42 strikes) before being chased from the game. Arrieta has lost three of his last four outings, but this was the first time in 2021 he failed to pitch at least five innings or allowed more than three runs, and he came into Friday having served up only two homers in 28 innings. Arrieta will take a 4.31 ERA and 28:12 K:BB into his next start.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Takes tough-luck loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (3-2) allowed one run on two hits and three walks over six innings Sunday, striking out eight and taking a loss against Milwaukee.

The Brewers jumped all over Arrieta in the first inning as the first four batters reached base. He managed to escape the no-out, bases-loaded jam after allowing just one run and cruised for the rest of his outing. However, he was outdueled by Brandon Woodruff, and the Cubs were shut out with just four hits. Arrieta will carry a 2.57 ERA into Friday's road matchup with the Reds.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Earns third win Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (3-1) allowed just one run across five innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Mets. He gave up three hits and three walks while striking out four.

The only damage against Arrieta came on a home run by J.D. Davis in the fifth inning, but the righty was otherwise able to strand five baserunners. The veteran has been terrific in his return to Chicago, posting a 2.86 ERA through his first four starts. Arrieta will look to keep it going in his next scheduled appearance Sunday against the Brewers.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Picks up first loss of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (1-2) gave up three runs on four hits and a walk while fanning five across five innings Wednesday against the Brewers. He was tagged with the loss.

Arrieta delivered a strong performance on the mound but was a victim of another woeful performance from the Cubs offense, as Chicago only went 4-for-32 as a team with two extra-base hits in the entire game. The veteran right-hander opened the season with back-to-back quality starts and has yet to allow more than three earned runs in an outing, posting a 3.18 ERA and a 14:5 K:BB across 17 innings.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Improves to 2-0
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (2-0) allowed two runs on seven hits across six innings of work to secure the win Thursday against the Pirates. He walked three and struck out four.

Arrieta now has two quality starts and two wins through his first two appearances, a span in which he's allowed just three earned runs across 12 innings. He only has nine strikeouts in that time, which is about par for the course for the veteran, who hasn't posted a K/9 of 9.0 or better since 2015. It also should be noted that both of Arrieta's starts have come against Pittsburgh, which isn't a particularly potent offensive team. The righty might face a slightly stiffer challenge when he takes the hill again Wednesday against the Brewers.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Quality start in win over Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (1-0) picked up the win Saturday, allowing one run on six hits and a walk over six innings in a 5-1 victory over the Pirates. He struck out five.

The veteran right-hander is no longer the dominant force who won a Cy Young Award with the Cubs in 2015, but Arrieta still had a successful start to his second stint in Chicago. He threw 53 of 84 pitches for strikes and shut down the Bucs after they squeezed across a run in the first inning to pick up the quality start. Arrieta will get a rematch with the Pirates in his next scheduled start Thursday in Pittsburgh.
