MLB Rumors: This Team Expected To Sign Jake Arrieta In Coming Days
The Phillies, who struck early in free agency by signing first baseman Carlos Santana to a three-year, $60 million deal, lurked late for Arrieta with an eye toward 2019 and beyond, when they are expected to more aggressively contend for a playoff berth.
It appears Lance Lynn inking a one-year, $12 million deal with the Minnesota Twins on Saturday was the domino needed to fall to help resolve the long-standing speculation this offseason on where - and when - 2015 National League Cy Young Award victor Jake Arrieta will sign.
The former Cubs ace was one of several marquee free agents remaining on the market weeks into spring training that hadn't hammered out a deal.
Cubs manager Joe Maddon said on Sunday that he was hoping Arrieta would find a good destination this winter.
It's been an abnormally slow Major League Baseball offseason in terms of the open market, but marquee free agents have begun to start finding homes.
"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.
Jake Arrieta is reportedly heading to Philadelphia.
Arrieta spent close to five seasons with the Cubs, racking up a 68-31 record with 793 strikeouts and a Cy Young award.
Arrieta went 14-10 across 30 starts last season while recording a 3.53 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 168 1/3 innings. If their young starters can take step forward this season, the Phillies could make waves in the wild card standings.
