Description: Cubs starter Jake Arrieta continues stellar season.
Insight: He is now 10-5 with a 2.53 ERA. Arrieta has been one of the biggest surprises in baseball this season for the Cubs. He will be a high-risk, high-reward pick in 2015.
 
9/16/2014 11:25:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Jake Arrieta threw a complete game one hitter, struck out 13 and walked just one to defeat the Reds, 7-0, on Tuesday.
Insight: It is the first complete game of Arrieta's career and the first complete game thrown by a Cubs starting pitcher this season. Arrieta nearly threw a no-hitter as he did not allow hit until Brandon Phillips doubled in the eighth. Cubs center fielder Matt Szczur made an incredile effort to try and catch Phillips' double, but he came up short. It has been a breakout year for Arrieta, who is 9-5 with a 2.65 ERA.

The 28-year-old is now 3-1 with a 1.98 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP and should be added in all leagues due to his pedigree as a former top-75 prospect for the Orioles. In 101 2/3 innings since the O's dealt him to Chicago last season, Arrieta has a 2.83 ERA.
