Jake Arrieta shut down for the rest of the regular season

USA Today Sports

Philadelphia Phillies manager confirmed that starting pitcher Jake Arrieta won’t pitch again for the remainder of the regular season.

Arrieta has a grade one hamstring strain after leaving Tuesday’s start against the Mets.

Though he said he would return for the postseason, it’s unclear whether the Phillies will secure a wild card spot.

Arrieta has a $22.5 million club option for next season, but the club will likely decline that.
