WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
|Arrieta signed out of Colombia at age 19. The Pirates sent him to the Dominican Summer League initially in 2018, but they moved him up to the GCL after that league started play. He throws an 89-91 mph fastball, a slider and a big, slow curve.
The Pirates sent Arrieta initially to the DSL, but once the GCL started play he moved up. He obviously had a very rough time at the latter stop, pitching mainly in very short stints, often less than an inning.
Arrieta had Tommy John surgery in May and missed the 2019 season.
