Report: Phillies, Jake Arrieta 'having dialogue'
The Philadelphia Phillies and free agent pitcher Jake Arrieta are "having dialogue," per Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.
With top free agents coming off the board, the attention is now on Arrieta as one of -- if not the top -- the top pitching options on the market. He has connections with some of the people in Philadelphia, but there's a gap in what each party is looking for. The Phillies want a short-term deal, but Arrieta's been looking for more than that. However, if he's willing to do fewer years, he could still get a nice chunk of change and help Philly compete with a young nucleus.
In 30 starts, Arrieta went 14-10 with a 3.53 ERA and 4.16 FIP in 2017.
