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.
