Pitching Notes: Arrieta, Bumgarner, Kopech, Smyly, Angels, Holland

While there’s no evidence of progress between the Cubs and Jake Arrieta on a new contract, the righty provided some interesting thoughts on his outlook to Jon Heyman of Fan Rag. Arrieta says he believes he may be able to land “a six- or seven-year deal” when he does sign, whether that’s with Chicago or another…

Slowed early by Jake Arrieta, A’s pour it on late vs. Cubs

Oakland had scored 54 runs in the previous four games (not counting a 7-0 exhibition win over Italy), but Arrieta didn’t allow a hit in his three innings of work. Oakland’s first hit was a bunt by Yonder Alonso in the fourth inning - then Alonso hammered a three-run homer in the sixth. The A’s scored four that inning and four more the next en route to a 9-8 victory. “In general, spring wins aren’t the most important thing in the world, but they aren’t bad, either, especially when you have some new guys here and you try to create a good atmosphere,” Melvin said. The A’s...

A’s revved up offense takes on Cubs’ Jake Arrieta

The A’s have scored 52 runs over the past four games (not including an exhibition against Team Italy), but they face Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta, the 2015 NL Cy Young winner, on Sunday. When you get a guy like Arrieta and you know he’s probably going to be out there for four-five innings, you can try to take stock of where we are, but it’s been tremendous. Oakland’s lineup is actually one that, during the regular season, would be more likely to be facing a left-hander, with platoon catcher Josh Phegley and outfielder Mark Canha both in there vs. Center fielder Rajai Davis is...
