Jake Arrieta agrees to 3-year contract with Phillies

Jake Arrieta agrees to 3-year contract with Phillies”

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. It is clear that the Phillies are planning to make a legitimate run at the National League East division crown.

Both people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Sunday because the contract is pending a physical.

The 32-year-old righty was among several top free agents who didn't get a deal for six or seven years in a changing offseason market. News of the deal was first reported NBC Sports Philadelphia. He was 14-10 with a 3.53 ERA past year.

The Padres, Nationals and Phillies have all been connected to Arrieta over the last month or so, but no concrete offers seem to have materialized lately. With connections to the Phillies front office from his time in Baltimore, Arrieta was heavily favorited to join Philadelphia this season.

Signing Arrieta is a message that management is ready to move past the rebuilding process. Now they've added a proven No. 1 starter to a slew of young arms in the rotation. Considering his delivery, some in baseball have wondered about his durability but he's made at least 30 starts each of the last three seasons helping the Cubs to the playoffs in each one of them. He went 14-10 with a 3.53 ERA in 168.1 innings pitched.
