Jake Arrieta finally finds a home - that Mets won't like


Bob Nightengale of USA Today says the deal is for three seasons worth $75 million.

Arrieta has been one of the top players on a chaotic Major League Baseball free agent market all offseason. When news broke of the Chicago Cubs' agreement with Yu Darvish, it was believed to be the beginning of a domino effect. General manager Matt Klentak was reportedly firm on his desire to sign a starting pitcher to a short-term deal to keep the franchise's money free-flowing for next offseason and to not block any prospects coming through the farm. A three-year term is far shorter than many expected before the offseason, although it may be considered a win for his camp to land a $25 million annual salary.

"I want what's best for Jake and his family, period", Maddon said when asked if he hopes Arrieta doesn't wind up with a division rival such as the Brewers or Cardinals. 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. "Wow I want nothing but good things to happen to Jake". If their young starters can take step forward this season, the Phillies could make waves in the wild card standings.

Arrieta won the 2015 NL Cy Young Award with the Chicago Cubs and helped them win the World Series the next season.

Arrieta made 61 starts and pitched to a 3.30 ERA (129 ERA+) while striking out roughly a batter per inning, according to CBS Sports.
