Anyway, Sunday evening, the new Phillies announced their presence with authority.

"I knew this was an organization that was hungry to win", Arrieta said. I feel like we're not far away.

"A rebuild doesn't mean you can't win now", Arrieta said. "We want to win now". The Phillies, who have plenty of money to spend, waited until the price was right for them. They signed first baseman Carlos Santana to a $60 million deal in December and spent a combined $34.25 million on veteran relievers Tommy Hunter and Pat Neshek.

Well, Arrieta went to Chicago, and the Cubs allowed him to be himself.

Arrieta will join Aaron Nola atop the Phillies' rotation on a team that finished last in the NL East. Jerad Eickhoff and Vince Velasquez are expected to be in the rotation and Nick Pivetta is the leading candidate for the fifth spot.

In four-plus seasons with the Cubs, Arrieta won 68 games and had a 2.73 ERA.

"Jake, in our opinion, was the best player available this offseason". Arrieta said he has been throwing 50-65 pitch bullpen sessions every two or three days. "We recognize that, and that's why we really, really wanted him".

The Phillies will officially introduce him at a press conference at 9 a.m. on Tuesday morning in Clearwater, Florida. A greeting committee welcomed him upon arrival. Arrieta has an opt-out option after 2019 and the deal also includes two club options in 2021 and 2022.

Arrieta won the 2015 NL Cy Young Award and was a member of the Cubs' 2016 World Series Championship team.

Through June last season, coming off the 2016 World Series, Arrieta had a 3.67 ERA, and slash line against him of.260/.328/.439.

At the time of the trade, Arrieta had a 7.23 ERA in five starts with the Orioles in 2013, and had a 5.46 ERA and 0.3 WAR with Baltimore in 358 innings pitched over four seasons.

"You get to a point in your career where you understand that pitching isn't all about velocity, " he said. "We're here now. It's a tremendous honor and I look forward to making this organization proud". "If that velocity does go back to 95-96, the league is in a lot of trouble".

"In a market place where you have 30 boats in the blue lake of free agency and maybe as many as 12 are no longer fishing and the other five have determined that the gas tax is too great, we're left with a free-agent model that is non-competitive", said Scott Boras, Arrieta's agent. It took a while, seeing as it is March 13 and the season begins in two and a half weeks, but Arrieta is ready to get right into it.

"This is a special situation for me", Arrieta said. "There's talent in here that needs experiential refinement, attitude and confidence".

Familiarity helped play a role in bringing Arrieta to Philadelphia.
