Phillies' Arrieta recovering from knee surgery


Phillies' Arrieta recovering from knee surgery

Philadelphia right-hander Jake Arrieta underwent pre-spring training surgery on his left knee, Phillies manager Gabe Kapler announced Wednesday. Kapler said the surgery, performed a few weeks ago, repaired a meniscus injury Arrieta sustained while weight training.

Arrieta is not expected to miss time in the regular season. "We may slow several guys down (in the season's first week), and we might not come out with our five-man rotation at the start," Kapler said. "But it's not going to be due to injury. It's going to be our progression plan."

Arrieta who turns 33 next month, is expected to fill the No. 2 spot in the Philadelphia rotation behind 25-year-old Aaron Nola. The Phillies announced Wednesday that Nola had agreed to a four-year, $45 million contract extension. In March 2018, the Phillies signed Arrieta to a three-year, $75 million contract. Last season, he went 10-11 with a 3.96 ERA and 138 strikeouts in 172 2/3 innings.

Arrieta won the 2015 NL Cy Young Award as a member of the Chicago Cubs when he posted a 22-6 record and 1.77 ERA. In nine major league seasons, he has a 98-67 record with a 3.62 ERA in 228 games (222 starts). He also helped pitch the Cubs to the 2016 championship, going 2-0 with a 2.38 ERA in two World Series starts against the Cleveland Indians.
