Jake Arrieta hasn’t look particularly comfortable in both of his Spring Training outings this year. On Tuesday vs the Rays, he allowed three runs on two hits and a walk in the top of the sixth inning, raising his spring ERA to 9.00.
In his debut on March 5 he allowed a walk on a hit and two walks in the Orioles 5-3 loss to the Pirates.
Considered the Orioles top pitching prospect (outside of Matusz and Tillman, who will be in the rotation) Arrieta struggled when he got his Triple-A promotion last year.
He looked good in the team’s intrasquad game and had been having some good bullpens prior to that. Hopefully, we will get a chance to catch up with him post game.
