Phillies sign Jake Arrieta to three-year deal, sources say

Former National League Cy Young victor Jake Arrieta has reportedly agreed to a multiyear contract with the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Phillies have agreed to a deal with Jake Arrieta pending a physical, The Post confirmed Sunday, as the star starting pitcher finally found a home. Acquiring Jake Arrieta would come at a (high) cost, with our estimation worth of 4 years, $112 million - but we will find out for sure once the Philadelphia Phillies confirm (or not) these reports.

Arrieta, 32, finished last season with a 14-10 record, a 3.53 ERA, and a 163/55 K/BB ratio in 168 1/3 innings for the Cubs.

Philadelphia signed free-agent first baseman Carlos Gomez to boost their lineup. The Phillies have long made it clear that length of deal is more of a concern with them than money.

Arrieta was 68-31 with a 2.73 ERA in five seasons in Chicago after starting his career in Baltimore.

At the start of free agency, Arrieta was believed to be one of the top free agent pitchers on the market but his agent Scott Boras was believed to initially be seeking a long-term deal in the $200 million range. Luke Weaver pitched four ideal innings and struck out four in his third start for the Cardinals in a 4-3 win over the Nationals. So, in the final tally, they spent $169 million this winter on Arrieta, Santana and relievers Pat Neshek and Tommy Hunter, all free agents. Three-time batting champion Joe Mauer doubled, drew a bases-loaded walk and scored as the leadoff man for the Twins in a 6-5 win over the Rays.

The move comes with less than three weeks to go until Opening Day.
