Jake Arrieta expected to sign with a team this week

Jake Arrieta expected to sign with a team this week”

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the deal is for three-years and $75 million. The Phillies are the favorites.

Arrieta pitched four-plus seasons for the Cubs after being acquired in a trade with the Orioles.

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. Many people will believe this to be quite a massive contract at $25 million per season; however, with the pitching market seemingly dried up, it's a contract that makes sense.

The Phillies haven't had a winning season since 2011, but now have added veteran slugger Carlos Santana, Arrieta and quality relievers to a young nucleus that could show considerable improvement over last season's 66-96 mark.

The Phillies current rotation has potential, with the 24-year-old Aaron Nola on staff, but outside of Nola the rest of Philadelphia's rotation lacks proven arms. Despite all of that, however, there is no denying that the signing of Jake Arrieta will immediately elevate the Phillies within their division. That seems unlikely from the Phillies, seeing as they need rotation help and could use Arrieta's veteran presence, but the market has been unusual this winter. Should the deal come to fruition, Arrieta would give Philadelphia's young rotation a significant boost. Possibly sooner than expected, once again, like the Cubs.
