Arrieta signs with Phillies, wants to 'move the needle'

Arrieta signs with Phillies, wants to 'move the needle'”

Jake Arrieta understands why Philadelphia Phillies fans are ready for a victor. Arrieta signed a three-year deal with the Philadelphia Phillies. "The success with the other sports organizations makes the city that much hungrier to get to that level". I feel like we're not far away. I don't think there's a wait here. A rebuild doesn't mean you can't win now. I intend to come in here and win right away. "We want to win now".

By the end of 2017, the Phillies were at a point in their rebuild where they had cleared the books of nearly any player making significant money. The Phillies spent big in free agency, signing slugger Carlos Santana and relievers Tommy Hunter and Pat Neshek. Jerad Eickhoff and Vince Velasquez, the two starters behind him, have yet to break through because of injuries and inconsistent performance. His 2.71 ERA is only behind Kershaw's 2.07 mark during that span.

"Jake, in our opinion, was the best pitcher available this offseason".

Middleton yearned after Arrieta and it was his private plane that delivered the pitcher Monday night to Phillies spring training. "We recognize that, and that's why we really, really wanted him".

But when the Philadelphia Phillies unveiled new ace Jake Arrieta on Tuesday, the big moment came along the sunny Gulf Coast of Florida, almost a month into spring training, 16 days from Opening Day - a reality that added another layer of intrigue and altered the typical atmosphere of these ceremonies, turning parts of Arrieta's introduction into something more resembling a pep rally. A greeting committee welcomed him upon arrival.

Arrieta gets $30 million this year, $25 million in 2019 and $20 million in 2020.

They won 97 games and reached the NL championship series that year with Arrieta leading the way. Earlier, USA Today's Bob Nightengale reported talks with Arrieta were "heating up", with the Phillies viewed as the favorites to sign the 2015 National League Cy Young victor.

Arrieta had a rough start to the 2017 campaign (8-7 with a 4.35 ERA before the All-Star break), but his strong second half (6-3 with a 2.28 ERA) allowed him to finish with a 14-10 record, 163 strikeouts and a 3.53 ERA in 168.1 innings pitched.
