Cubs | Jake Arrieta up-and-down again in victory

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 20:18:07 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta struggled with his command yet again despite picking up his National League-leading 12th win versus the Cincinnati Reds on Monday, June 27, giving up season highs in runs (five) and walks (five) while working a season-low five innings. Arrieta did help his own cause at the plate, however, by going 2-for-3 with a solo home run and scoring twice.

Fantasy Tip: Expect a report in the coming days about Arrieta finding a flaw in his mechanics; Monday marks the sixth time in his 13 starts he has issued at least four free passes - a stretch that incidentally began with his April 21 no-hitter against the Reds. What's worse is the 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner has worked exactly five frames six times over that same span, so he isn't giving himself a chance to ring up many strikeouts. Keep Arrieta in lineups against a struggling New York Mets' offense on Saturday.

Cubs | Jake Arrieta takes first loss in 25 turns

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 15:28:26 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta struck out a season-high 12 over five innings but saw his 20-game winning streak come to an end Sunday, June 5, after yielding three runs in a loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Don't worry, fantasy owners; there will be life after an Arrieta loss. The 2015 National League Cy Young is showing signs of being a mortal after winning his first six starts of the season and has lasted only five frames two of his last three outings, but is still sporting a 9-1 record with an 1.80 ERA and 0.96 WHIP. Look for Arrieta to return to his dominant form on the road next weekend when he faces the hapless Atlanta Braves offense.

Cubs | Jake Arrieta sharp in rare no-decision

Tue, 31 May 2016 22:34:57 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta picked up a no-decision in his start Tuesday, May 31, versus the Los Angeles Dodgers. He registered seven shutout innings, surrendering only two hits and four walks. He also struck out eight.

Fantasy Tip: Miraculously, this ends the Cubs' streak of 23 straight wins when Arrieta toes the rubber. And obviously, this loss had nothing to do on his part, as he was fantastic as usual. The reigning NL Cy Young winner continues to be as great as they come, and is a no-doubter to start in fantasy lineups every time he has an assignment on tap.

Cubs | Jake Arrieta sliding above all others

Fri, 20 May 2016 13:03:18 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta's slider has the third-highest velocity and moves horizontally as it crosses the plate at a faster rate (9.9 feet per second) than any other qualified pitcher this season. Before joining the Cubs, Arrieta utilized his slider a career-high 17 percent of his pitches in 2011. In 2014 and 2015, he threw the pitch 29 percent of the time, and thus far in 2016, Arrieta has thrown his slider with 25 percent of his pitches.

In the past three seasons, opponents are hitting .181 on Arrieta's slider, with a .234 on-base percentage and a .267 slugging percentage. The respective major league averages during that time are .217, .257 and .339.

Fantasy Tip: Arrieta has won seven of his eight starts this season and sits with a 1.29 ERA, a 0.84 WHIP and 55 strikeouts through 56 innings. He is producing at a historical level dating back to the middle of 2015, and he should be started with confidence in all fantasy formats whenever he takes the hill.
