Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta struck out seven and walked three in seven shutout innings in a win over the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday, April 8. Arrieta was 10-5 with a 2.53 ERA during a breakout 2014 season, and he improved to 3-0 with a 0.74 ERA in six career starts against the Cardinals.
Fantasy Tip: Arrieta ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) dominating an imposing Cardinals lineup in his season debut is a good sign for his 2015 campaign after putting himself on the map last year. It was a chilly and damp day, but Arrieta should be considered a strong daily fantasy play during most of his starts.
