According to a report, one of the top names left on the MLB free agency market is about to make a decision on his new team.
USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that ex-Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta, the 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner, will make a decision on his future in 'the next few days.' The Philadelphia Phillies are reportedly the favorite, but several teams remain involved in talks with Arrieta.
Arrieta is viewed as the top right-handed pitcher left on the market. If Arrieta is to make a decision, teams in need of a right-handed arm could turn their focus to former Rays pitcher Alex Cobb.
