Bob Nightengale of USA Today Sports reports the terms of the deal are $75 million over three years. According to Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philly, the two sides have an agreement in principle that is pending a physical. Since Arrieta turned down a qualifying offer with Chicago, the Phils will need to surrender their second best draft pick if they want to sign Arrieta, as well as $500,000 from their global signing bonus stockpile.

Jake Arrieta finally found a new home.

Arrieta makes a lot of sense for the Phillies, who are close to being legitimately competitive for the first time in quite a few years. It appears the Phillies got their way: $25 million AAV over three years.

No. 1 seed Rhode Island won the regular-season title and upset Creighton in the NCAA Tournament before falling to OR last season. Rhode Island: A conference championship would have been nice, of course, but a trip to the NCAAs is going to happen, anyway.

Unfortunately for Arrieta, a slow free-agent market forced him to accept a lesser deal than he reportedly turned down from the Cubs. Among the multiple starter hopefuls include: right-handers Jerad Eickhoff, Vince Velasquez and Mark Leiter Jr. as the likely the favorites, followed by Nick Pivetta, Ben Lively, Zach Eflin and Jake Thompson.

Also, a veteran presence to anchor the young-guns would go along way, helping the Phillies moving forward.

Arrieta is 2-0 with a 0.60 ERA and 0.733 WHIP in 15 innings all-time at Citizens Bank Park.
