Cubs Reaction: Former ace Jake Arrieta on his way to Philadelphia

Report: Jake Arrieta Nearing Deal With Phillies MLB Rumors: This Team Expected To Sign Jake Arrieta In Coming Days

The right-hander was among several top free agents who didn't get a deal for six or seven years in a changing offseason market.

The deal is pending Arrieta passing a physical. It naturally did not happen.

It was recently reported that Arrieta was close to signing with Philadelphia.

The Phillies have inked the best remaining free agent to a reported three-year, $75 million deal - as Jake Arrieta will step in and anchor the Phillies pitching rotation. Although he threw for a 3.53 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 2017, Arrieta averaged a 2.67 ERA and 1.03 WHIP over his last four seasons with the Cubs.

Here's a look at the winners and losers of the Phillies three-year deal with former Cubs ace Jake Arrieta.

When is the NIT? Participants, bracket, schedule for 2018 National Invitation Tournament
The Nittany Lions are 22-9 all-time in the NIT, reaching at least the semifinals in five of its last seven appearances. The Nittany Lions didn't make the NCAA tournament after finishing this year with a 21-13 record.

Ireland punted an eminently kickable penalty to the corner, only to come away with no reward for that early enterprise. A simple pass would have resulted in a Hogg try but Jones made a mess of it and the chance went begging.

The news of the announcement of all 68 teams up-front was met with a lot of skepticism by fans on social media. It would be fair to say that the tail-end of Ayton's regular season was a bit distraction-filled .

The Phillies made moves to bolster their bullpen in the offseason. They signed first baseman Carlos Santana to a three-year, $60 million in December.

Arrieta, 32, was the National League Cy Young Award victor in 2015 while winning 22 games and posting a 1.77 ERA for the Chicago Cubs. He's now 32-years old so the deal will end when he is 35.

The Phillies were always interested in Arrieta, but the organization was firm in its desire to avoid a long-term contract.

There's always a significant risk investing big money over many years to starting pitchers, especially one like Arrieta who only has two seasons in his career with more than 170 innings pitched. Arrieta may have plenty of catching up to do since his new teammates have already been participating in spring training for quite a while now, but that's nothing the veteran isn't capable of handling.
