Jake Arrieta upset with Bryce Harper for ejection, sounds off on ‘flat’ Phillies

NEW YORK — Jake Arrieta slammed the shelf above his locker at Citi Field, still peeved moments after speaking with reporters.

Arrieta pitched relatively well in the Phillies’ 5-1 loss to the Mets (see observations). The source of his anger was an untimely ejection of the Phillies’ best player, Bryce Harper, in the top of the fourth inning, combined with an overall “flat” performance from the Phillies’ offense.

The 33-year-old former Cy Young winner didn’t mince words. He didn’t rush to defend Harper or belabor the quick hook of home plate umpire Mark Carlson, who tossed Harper for arguing balls and strikes in the Phillies’ dugout.

MLB roundup: Harper leads Phillies to series sweep

Bryce Harper reached base four times and hit a solo home run in the seventh inning as the Philadelphia Phillies completed a three-game sweep of the visiting Atlanta Braves with a 5-1 win on Sunday night.

The Phillies are 3-0 for the first time since 2011.

Philadelphia starting pitcher Jake Arrieta (1-0) gave up one run on three hits in six innings. He struck out six, but he also walked six while throwing 104 pitches.

Andrew McCutchen also hit a solo home run and scored twice for the Phillies. Rhys Hoskins walked three times and was hit by a pitch to reach base in all four plate appearances. He was plunked after Harper’s home run, and Braves reliever Shane Carle was ejected immediately afterward.

Yesterday’s game results, today!

MLB notebook: Phillies extend Nola, announce Arrieta surgery

Philadelphia Phillies pitchers made news on Wednesday, with the announcements that Aaron Nola agreed to a four-year contract extension and Jake Arrieta underwent pre-spring training surgery on his left knee.

Terms of Nola’s contract were not released, but ESPN and The Athletic placed the value at $45 million. Nola, 25, had been scheduled for an arbitration hearing this week.

Meanwhile, Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said Arrieta’s surgery, performed a few weeks ago, repaired a meniscus injury the pitcher sustained while weight training. He is not expected to miss time in the regular season.

Given how heavily the Phillies rely on their pitching, they better hope this prognosis is accurate….

Phillies’ Jake Arrieta warns players coming up on new contracts: ‘You’re next’

Jake Arrieta wants players coming up on arbitration and free agency to be aware of what they’re getting into.

“All of you 1-3 yr players out there better be paying attention to what’s going on in our game,” he wrote Saturday on Twitter. “You’re next. @MLB.”

MLB has seen a significant decrease in free-agent contracts over the last two seasons, despite record revenue in 2018.

Note to self: Check back in 2021 and see if it looks like there will be a 2022 season.
