Orioles | Jake Arrieta has strong outing
Baltimore Orioles SP Jake Arrieta tossed six scoreless innings and struck out nine in his spring start Thursday, March 21, as he bids for the No. 5 rotation spot. He is currently in the middle of a 14 2/3 scoreless innings streak in camp, giving up six hits and two walks Thursday. Arrieta has given up five runs and 13 hits while walking eight and striking out 16 in 17 1/3 innings over four spring starts.
Fantasy Tip: Arrieta will come dirt cheap this year and goes undrafted in most mixed universes. Unfortunate hit and HR/FB rates led to a bloated ERA last year. There is still room for improvement. He could be a steal in AL-only formats.
