Description: Cubs starter Jake Arrieta held the Orioles, his former team, to one run on four hits in seven innings Wednesday afternoon.
Insight: The O's likely wish they could have a do-over of the trade that sent Arrieta, a former high-level prospect, to the Cubs for Scott Feldman last season. Feldman is now in Houston and Arrieta is 7-4 with a 2.53 ERA, a 1.01 WHIP and 127 Ks in 124 1/3 innings.
 
Hot8/17/2014 4:50:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Jake Arrieta gave up just two hits over seven innings Sunday, but didn't earn the win when Pedro Strop gave up a run in the eighth inning.
Insight: Arrieta has been impressive this season despite a 6-4 record that belies the rest of the numbers. His ERA is down to 2.61 with a 1.022 WHIP and 122 Ks in 117 1/3 IP.
 
Hot7/31/2014 7:07:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Jake Arrieta gave up three hits and a run over seven innings Thursday against the Rockies.
Insight: Arrieta has been downright dominant this season, throwing 98 innings and posting a 2.11 ERA, a 0.99 WHIP and a 106/28 K/BB. Since June 8, he's allowed a measly 34 hits, 15 walks and 13 earned runs in 68 innings (1.72 ERA, 0.72 WHIP).
 
Hot6/30/2014 10:21:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Jake Arrieta no-hit the Red Sox for 7 2/3 innings Monday night before allowing a single to Stephen Drew.
Insight: Arrieta had a no-hitter through six innings his last start and has gone on an unbelievable run lately. In June, the 28-year-old right-hander went 4-0 with a 0.92 ERA, a 0.69 WHIP and a 48/6 K/BB in 39 1/3 innings. The former Orioles prospect has finally figured things out and should be owned in all leagues. He has a 1.81 ERA and a 1.96 FIP in 64 2/3 innings this season.
 
Hot6/18/2014 6:00:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Jake Arrieta struck out a career-high 11 batters and allowed one run on five hits in seven innings Wednesday at Miami.
Insight: Arrieta has posted a 27/2 K/BB and allowed one run on 10 hits in his last 23 innings. 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.
 
Hot6/13/2014 10:38:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Jake Arrieta had a good showing Friday against the Phillies.
Insight: Arrieta (7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 9 K's, 1 BB) has been sensational over his last two starts, limiting opponents to just five hits over 13 scoreless frames. His strikeout to walk ratio over that stretch is 16 to 1.
 
6/8/2014 5:49:00 PM
Description: Chicago right-hander Jake Arrieta was dominant Sunday against Miami.
Insight: The Marlins managed just three hits in Arrieta's six innings of work. Arrieta (1-1, 2.50 ERA) delivered seven strikeouts without walking a batter. Once again the Cubs' bullpen couldn't hold the lead, leaving Arrieta with his fifth no-decision in seven starts.
 
4/28/2014 8:47:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Jake Arrieta (shoulder) will come off the DL to start this weekend, according to Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune.
Insight: Arrieta was supposed to start Wednesday but Monday's rainout will push Jeff Samardzija and Edwin Jackson back and Travis Wood will stay in his normal spot on Friday. Arrieta put up a 3.66 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP in 51 2/3 innings after Chicago acquired him from Baltimore last season, but he has a career 5.23 ERA in 409 2/3 innings.

2/26/2014 9:32:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Jake Arrieta has been throwing from flat ground, according to Carrie Muskat of mlb.com. He has been slowed by tightness in his shoulder since the start of camp and we won't be able to talk about timetables until he gets back on a mound.
Insight: Arrieta is expected to occupy Chicago's fifth spot in the rotation if he's healthy. He put up a 3.66 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP in 51 2/3 innings after Chicago acquired him from Baltimore last season, but he has a career 5.23 ERA in 409 2/3 innings.

Description: Cubs starter Jake Arrieta played catch Saturday and said his shoulder felt fine afterwards, but a bullpen session isn't imminent. SOURCE: Mark D. Gonzales, Chicago Tribune
Insight: Arrieta said earlier that if his shoulder responded well from the session he thought he could throw off a mound as early as next week. The right-hander is expected to occupy Chicago's fifth spot in the rotation if he's healthy. He put up a 3.66 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP in 51 2/3 innings after Chicago acquired him from Baltimore last season, but he has a career 5.23 ERA in 409 2/3 innings.
 
9/19/2013 7:14:00 PM
Description: Cubs righthander Jake Arrieta dominated the Brewers for his fourth win Thursday at Miller Park.
Insight: Arrieta has been much better since the Orioles traded him to Chicago. In eight games for his new club, the 27-year-old is 3-2 with a 3.94 ERA. Prior to the trade, he was 1-2 with an ERA over seven.
 
8/16/2013 7:59:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Jake Arrieta fired seven scoreless two-hit innings Friday afternoon in a win over the Cardinals.
Insight: Arrieta has allowed just four hits and one run over 13 innings in two starts with the Cubs. The former highly touted Orioles prospect has a career ERA over 5.00, but he could be a decent NL-only option down the stretch now that he's out of the AL East.
 
7/2/2013 8:07:00 PM
Description: Righthander Jake Arrieta was traded to the Cubs on Tuesday.
Insight: He came over as part of the Scott Feldman trade. Arrieta (1-2, 7.23 ERA in five starts) hasn't pitched well for the Orioles this year but maybe a change of scenery and lower expectations (the Cubs are 15 and a half games out of first) will help him get back on track.
 
Cold4/22/2013 10:05:00 PM
Description: Orioles righthander Jake Arrieta has been demoted to Triple-A Norfolk.
Insight: Arrieta (1-1, 6.63 ERA in four starts) pitched well in spring training but unfortunately that success didn't carry over into the regular season. Steve Johnson (strained lat) is likely to absorb Arrieta's spot in the rotation as soon as he finishes up his rehab assignment.
 
3/31/2013 8:55:00 PM
Description: Jake Arrieta is expected to start the fourth game of the season for Baltimore.
Insight: Arrieta won the final spot in the Orioles' rotation by putting up a 1.56 ERA and 16 strikeouts in 17 1/3 innings this spring. He has a career ERA of 5.33 in 334 1/3 innings and needs to show us some improvement before we recommend him as a fantasy option.
 
3/24/2013 7:32:00 PM
Description: The Baltimore Sun predicts that righthander Jake Arrieta will win the final spot in the Orioles' starting rotation.
Insight: Arrieta, Steve Johnson, Tommy Hunter, Zach Britton, Brian Matusz and Jair Jurrjens have all been linked to the fifth spot in Baltimore's rotation but in the end it looks like it's going to go to either Matusz or Arrieta. Though Matusz is probably more talented than Arrieta, he might be more valuable to Buck Showalter as a late inning lefty specialist out of the bullpen. Arrieta is having a nice spring so far (1-0, 1.56 ERA in five appearances) but he's coming off a terrible season (3-9, 6.20).
 
9/7/2012 8:59:00 PM
Description: The Orioles called up righthander Jake Arrieta from Triple-A Norfolk on Friday.
Insight: Arrieta (3-9, 6.13 ERA) will pitch out of the bullpen so this move means very little for fantasy.
 
8/26/2012 2:03:00 PM
Description: Righthander Jake Arrieta was called up from Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday.
Insight: Arrieta struggled in the majors earlier in the year, producing a 6.13 ERA in 18 starts. It doesn't look like Arrieta will start for the Orioles, meaning that he is probably not a realistic fantasy option.
