Jake Arrieta doesn’t expect to pitch again this season

Phillies starter Jake Arrieta has been placed on the 10-day injured list due to bone spurs in his right elbow. It’s an issue he has been dealing with for most of the season and was diagnosed with last month. Arrieta will undergo an arthrogram on Thursday, per Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic, which will help the Phillies determine the next step which could involve surgery. For what it’s worth, Arrieta said he doesn’t expect to pitch again this season, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Arrieta, 33, posted an ugly 4.64 ERA with 110 strikeouts and 51 walks in 135 2/3 innings of work this season for the Phillies. He was inconsistent for much of the first half of the season, then couldn’t pitch deep into games once he was diagnosed with the elbow issue. In seven starts between the beginning of July and his most recent start on Sunday, Arrieta pitched into the sixth inning just once.

At this point, one suspects that Phillies management is cursing the new earlier trade deadline….

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!
