Free agent ace Arrieta, Phillies reach 3-year deal

Free agent ace Arrieta, Phillies reach 3-year deal”

The National League East just became a lot more interesting with this signing, as the Phillies will now have their rotation led by the 2015 National League Cy Young Award victor. That leaves the Phillies (and any other dark-horse candidates), who have both the cash and the roster space to make a deal work - assuming the two can find some middle ground, that is. Arrieta, 32, had a strong second half of 2017 leading into free agency as he compiled a 2.28 ERA following the All-Star break.

The veteran right-hander benefitted from a stellar lineup during his Cubs tenure, and it's safe to say he won't have that same luxury with the rebuilding Philadelphia Phillies. Last season, he recorded a 3.53 ERA and 163 strikeouts in 168.1 innings. 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.

He explained that the US and North Korea need to start with "talks about talks", according to the Associated Press. He outlined the themes of his trip: counterterrorism, democracy, governance, trade and investment.

His postseason experience will be invaluable to a young, up-and-coming team looking to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2011. It sounds like several clubs are still in the mix, though the Phillies remain the frontrunner for Arrieta's services.

While the Mets must exhale that Arrieta will not be joining their nemeses in Washington, he may now turn a fringe NL East team into a contender. It's not yet clear if the club has come around to the idea of a four- or five-year contract or if Arrieta has lowered his asking price in hopes of securing a deal before Opening Day.
