Cubs | Jake Arrieta has owned Cards

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 11:44:07 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta is 3-1 with a 1.51 ERA in seven career starts against the St. Louis Cardinals, who he faces Friday, June 26. He has struck out 49 and allowed 15 walks and 29 hits in 41 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Arrieta ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) is having a fine season, with a 3.07 ERA and 9.5 strikeouts per nine innings. However, paying up for him on FantasyScore tonight against the Cardinals, who have the best record in baseball, seems unnecessary.

Cubs | Jake Arrieta has dominated Cards

Thu, 07 May 2015 10:40:17 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta is 3-0 with a 0.74 ERA with three earned runs allowed in 36 1/3 innings in six career starts against the St. Louis Cardinals. He beat them in seven scoreless innings April 8, and he hasn't allowed an earned run in 19 straight innings against the Cardinals going back to 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Arrieta ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) is sporting a 2.84 ERA and 1.042 WHIP on the year, and is facing a weaker St. Louis lineup today while Matt Carpenter and Matt Holliday rest. He should be a fine option as one of your FantasyScore pitchers this afternoon.

Fantasy Tip: Arrieta ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) was due for an off day, and it seemed like it happened against the Brewers. Owners should not worry, as he will likely rebound in his next start or two.

Cubs | Jake Arrieta has had success against Bucs

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 11:41:56 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta is 3-0 with a 3.13 ERA (eight earned runs in 23 innings) in his career against the Pittsburgh Pirates in four starts. The Cubs have won each of his four career starts against the Bucs.

Fantasy Tip: Arrieta ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) would be a solid FantasyScore pitching selection if the weather holds up at pitcher-friendly PNC Park Monday night. He's worth paying up for while going against the reeling Bucs if rain doesn't get in the way.

Cubs | Jake Arrieta stellar Wednesday

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 15:08:20 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta struck out seven and walked three in seven shutout innings in a win over the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday, April 8. Arrieta was 10-5 with a 2.53 ERA during a breakout 2014 season, and he improved to 3-0 with a 0.74 ERA in six career starts against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Arrieta ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) dominating an imposing Cardinals lineup in his season debut is a good sign for his 2015 campaign after putting himself on the map last year. It was a chilly and damp day, but Arrieta should be considered a strong daily fantasy play during most of his starts.

Fantasy Tip: Last year against the Red Birds, Arrieta ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) had a 1.21 ERA in four outings (one start). His stellar history against St. Louis certainly should give you some faith in using him at FantasyScore Tuesday.
