Phillies' Jake Arrieta (elbow) on IL, likely done for season

The Philadelphia Phillies placed pitcher Jake Arrieta on the 10-day injured list with a right elbow injury and is likely done for the season.

What It Means:

Arrieta is going to undergo surgery to remove a bone spur, leaving the pitcher highly doubtful to return with just six weeks left in the regular season. Zach Eflin is expected to return to the rotation to take Arrieta's spot.

Arrieta's finished 2019 with a 4.64 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and 18.5% strikeout percentage in 135 2/3 innings pitched.
