ESPN Fantasy Projection: It's tempting to write Arrieta off entering his age-34 season, but keep in mind that he pitched with a bone spur in his elbow last year. While that did not dramatically affect his velocity, there's some thought that his release point was off and his extension was limited. Obviously it's impossible to quantify the impact the injury had on his numbers. After Arrieta had the spur removed, he will be looking to get back to the form we saw in 2017 and 2018. Arrieta was far from being the ace he used to be, but he was still an above-average major-league starter in 2017 and 2018, capable of providing wins and decent ratios on a good team. The strikeouts probably aren't coming back (18.5 K% last year) and you'll want to pick your spots early on, but you could do worse in the endgame.
