Phillies, RHP Arrieta agree to 3-year deal

Phillies, RHP Arrieta agree to 3-year deal

The length of the deal was confirmed by Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia. The Phillies weren't about to play in that realm, but they made it clear to Arrieta's representatives that they'd be open to something in the three-year range.

The Philadelphia Phillies landed their second marquee free agent this off season and a big name to its starting rotation.

Luke Weaver pitched four ideal innings and struck out four in his third start for St. Louis.

For the Phillies, landing Arrieta is the ideal cap to their offseason. But, the price he's asking could cripple any long-term plans for the Phillies, with the team not expected to be in contention for several more seasons. During his successful career transformation with the Cubs, he was 68-31 with a 2.73 ERA in 128 career starts. He's earned that right based on what he did with the Cubs especially during the 2015 and 2016 seasons.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today Sports reports the terms of the deal are $75 million over three years. However, club officials distanced themselves from Arrieta and Darvish because of the length of deals the pitchers were seeking. Likewise, the deal's length is team friendly as well. On top of Hector Neris, Adam Morgan, Luis Garcia and Hoby Milner, Klentak used the team's excess financial flexibility to lure veterans Pat Neshek and Tommy Hunter to Philadelphia this offseason, setting the team up to potentially have one of the best bullpens in the sport. The 24-year-old pitcher can benefit greatly from this signing and that news should be music to the fans' ears.

On Aug. 30, 2015, he no-hit the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium, the last of three shutouts he'd throw that season.

Jake Arrieta's long stay on the free-agent market appears to have come to an end.

The Phillies No. 1 hole entering this offseason was their starting rotation.
