Arrieta PITCHf/x

25-year old Jake Arrieta will take the mound for the Orioles as they try to salvage a split against the Yankees.  You can view Arrieta's season in a number of different ways: 10 wins on a terrible team is a good thing, 5.12 ERA is pretty frightening.  Even more frightening is his 5.29 FIP, due to a monstrous home run rate.  xFIP likes him more, pegging him at 4.32, which is serviceable.  Arrieta has a full five pitch mix, with good velocity and a huge curveball.  His slider can look like a cutter sometimes.  Enjoy the charts and graphs.
