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

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

"I feel like we'll probably sit down and game plan and decide how quickly I get into a game and how many pitches I'm able to throw right away and develop a program to get me ready for the opening week of the season because that's exactly what I intend to do". "We're going to have conviction and we're going to fight and we're going to win".

The Philadelphia Phillies officially announced the signing of pitcher Jake Arrieta on Monday afternoon.

"This is going to be a pretty ideal marriage", said Gabe Kapler, the Phillies' rookie manager, "[between] what our players need from Jake and what Jake can bring to our clubhouse". Phillies president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail, general manager Matt Klentak and assistant GM Ned Rice knew Arrieta from their previous tenure in Baltimore. "Ultimately it's up to the people in charge to get this done and they did it".

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported the Philadelphia Phillies are "moving close to a deal" with Arrieta.

"In the midst of what felt like never ending adversity and failure, I was traded to the Cubs on July 2nd, 2013", Arrieta wrote.

Likewise, BJP fielded Narayan Rane and Kerala's BJP state president V Murlidhar as its candidate for Rajya Sabha polls. The JD-S also fears cross-voting by some of its members in favour of the ruling Congress' third nominee.

The Phillies have the financial resources to pay Arrieta $25 million per year. It was called "Phillies: What will come of the rest of the offseason". And the answer appears to be some mixture of opportunity and opportunism. They have a roster composed heavily of players who have yet to even reach arbitration, leaving the Phillies enormous payroll flexibility. "He's going to take pressure off the younger guys".

Middleton greenlighted Klentak to spend $169 million this winter on four free agents. Period. Not just the best pitcher - the best player, " said Phillies owner John Middleton. "And we're fortunate enough our ownership has taken that into their hands".

A year ago opposing hitters hit.235 off Arietta.

"When you bring in players like Jake", said Boras, whose stockpile of lofty metaphors to describe his clients is apparently endless, "you put the cream in the coffee where it's ready to drink". The Cubs showed little interest in re-signing him and moved on with Yu Darvish (six years, $126 million) last month. Santana, catcher Cameron Rupp, third baseman Maikel Franco, outfielder Rhys Hoskins and a half dozen other Phillies players and coaches ringed the back wall of Arrieta's introductory news conference and listened to him preach commitment and accountability. The team has a slew of young pitchers who could fill in. "Did it take longer than I would've liked?"
