When Jake Arrieta was given the ball to be the Orioles' Opening Day starter, he talked about how important it would be to have a consistent season, something he really hasn't had in his young career. Through 10 starts in 2012 - including Wednesday's loss - Arrieta is 2-5 with a 4.87 ERA, certainly not what he was envisioning in April. But look deeper into the numbers and what really stands out is just how inconsistent he has been. In four of his 10 starts he has allowed two runs or fewer, is 2-0 and has posted a 1.26 ERA. He's allowed just four runs total in 28 2/3 innings and is averaging seven innings per outing.

CHICAGO -- The Orioles will play against two familiar faces in their three-game series against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field this weekend. Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta is scheduled to start Friday's series opener, and left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada is set to start Sunday. Arrieta, who was traded to the Cubs along with reliever Pedro Strop in July 2013 for right-hander Scott Feldman and catcher Steve Clevenger, has emerged as the Cubs' ace. Arrieta struggled to maintain consistency with the Orioles, but he is 6-4 with a 2.61 ERA in 19 starts this season.

If Jake Arrieta is the Orioles' Opening Day starter, his final tune-up of the Grapefruit League left plenty of room for improvement when the season begins Friday. Arrieta allowed six earned runs on eight hits and two walks in five innings as the Orioles and Pittsburgh Pirates tied, 6-6, Saturday afternoon. But manager Buck Showalter, who hasn't officially named Arrieta as Opening Day starter, was not concerned about the pitching line. “He's in a good spot. I'm happy with where he is compared to where he was when he left us last year,” Showalter said.

It was easy to draw one particular conclusion after the Orioles completed a deal with the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday that added veteran pitcher Scott Feldman to the rotation and gave mercurial starter Jake Arrieta and struggling reliever Pedro Strop a much-needed change of scenery: The Orioles solved one big problem and got rid of two others. Of course, it's not that simple, but Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette moved very decisively to shore up the rotation for the second half and also came away with some minor league catching depth (Mount St. Joseph alum Steve Clevenger)

Earlier this season, the Orioles' rotation continually pitched deep into games only to see a shaky bullpen and a woeful offense expunge any hope of winning consistently. Through the first 10 contests of the second half, Orioles starters certainly are doing their part to contribute to what is arguably the worst season in modern franchise history. In a 10-4 thumping by the Minnesota Twins on Sunday afternoon that dropped the Orioles to 2-8 to start the second half, another young Orioles pitcher failed to give his club a chance.

He walked the No. 8 hitter and the No. 9 hitter, both with two outs, and by the time the bottom of the second finally ended, Orioles starter Jake Arrieta had thrown 35 pitches in the inning and appeared to be on his way to a short night. But rediscovering his command and showing no signs of the hip soreness that affected him in his last start, Arrieta settled in and delivered one of the best outings of his young career, retiring 15 of the final 16 hitters he faced and allowing just one run and three hits over seven innings.

Joe Jordan, the Orioles' director of scouting, recently watched fifth-round draft pick Jacob Arrieta pitch in the Arizona Fall League. "We've seen a good curveball, slider, changeup. We've seen him really pitch," Jordan told me Tuesday night. "He's got a workhorse body, an Andy Benes type of guy. I was really encouraged. It was similar to what I saw his sophomore year at TCU. Delivery-wise, it looks like he's got some things ironed out. He's very confident. Facing wooden bats, he's a different guy. He really attacks with the fastball.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -The massive securities scandal involving the Stanford Financial Group has left New York Yankees veterans Johnny Damon and Xavier Nady with their assets frozen by federal regulators, and it has even reached into the Orioles' minor league system. Matt Wieters and Jake Arrieta, who are clients of agent Scott Boras, confirmed that they have assets that might be affected by the civil case that has been filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission against billionaire investment tycoon Robert Allen Stanford, who is accused of fraud involving the sale of $8 billion in certificates of deposits that boasted unusually high returns.

Frederick Keys ace right-hander Jake Arrieta took a long, hard look at his glowing statistics this season and said of his chances of being promoted to Baltimore next year: "I think it's going to be hard for them [the Orioles] to keep me in the minor leagues if I keep pitching this well." Arrieta, 6 feet 4 and 225 pounds, is on a roll these days and had every right to be confident after he had shut down the Salem Avalanche on two hits and no runs over seven innings Thursday night. He struck out six and walked three in an 8-0 victory for the Keys.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -Orioles pitching coach Rick Kranitz stood stoically behind the group of mounds, his arms folded, his eyes fixed on the future that was now so tantalizingly close. Brian Matusz snapped off a curveball from one mound and Brad Bergesen threw his sinker from another. Minutes later, Chris Tillman and Jake Arrieta fired fastballs into outstretched mitts, the popping sound audible on the back fields at the Orioles' spring training complex. Most members of what scouts consider one of the best pitching prospect groups in all of baseball are here at Fort Lauderdale Stadium this spring, throwing bullpen sessions, getting into the occasional Grapefruit League game and familiarizing themselves with an organization that is counting so heavily on their development.

CHICAGO - The Orioles made the first chess move of the trade deadline season on Tuesday afternoon - simultaneously showing they are committed to building for a deep playoff run this year - acquiring right-hander Scott Feldman from the Chicago Cubs along with catcher Steve Clevenger for right-handed pitchers Jake Arrieta and Pedro Strop. Feldman, who was 7-6 with a 3.46 ERA in 15 starts with the Cubs, will bolster an Orioles starting rotation that owns a 4.79 ERA, ranked 27th of 30 major league teams.

Jake Arrieta, who was dealt to the Chicago Cubs today along with reliever Pedro Strop for pitcher Scott Feldman and catcher Steve Clevenger, was on his way to the Norfolk clubhouse to meet with some his teammates and say goodbye before packing and leaving for Triple-A Iowa, when he returned a phone call. He said he expects to throw a bullpen session at Iowa and make a couple starts there before the Cubs decide whether he'll be coming up to the big leagues. Arrieta was considered an ace of the future and was the Orioles' Opening Day starter in 2012, but he couldn't maintain consistency and was shuttled back and forth from the minors.

The Orioles have traded right-handers Jake Arrieta and Pedro Strop to the Chicago Cubs for right-hander Scott Feldman and catcher Steve Clevenger (Mount St. Joseph). Here's some reaction on the move. Dan Connolly, Orioles/baseball reporter: The Orioles wanted another proven starter with playoff experience if possible. They got him in Scott Feldman, a big right-hander who has been on their radar pretty much since Buck Showalter joined the Orioles. Feldman pitched for Showalter in Texas and the manager loves the guy's attitude.

Orioles reliever Darren O'Day took the high road when asked about the words he's exchanged with Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista the past two days. At the same time, he gave Bautista credit for getting the best of him in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays. He also said he made a horrible pitch to Bautista on the 3-2 slider Bautista hit out for the game-winning homer. Credit Darren O'Day for leaving the war of words on the field. Bautista chose to bash O'Day to the media after his crowning moment.

When right-hander Jake Arrieta returns to Triple-A Norfolk, he will do so in a starting role with the Tides - for now. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Arrieta will join Norfolk's starting rotation. He is currently not listed among the Tides' starting pitching probables.   “We constantly look at things with guys with really good arms like Jake,” Showalter said. “If he gets the ball down, he's effective. How do you do it? Is it delivery? Is it a mentality? We've talked about all those things and we will continue.

DETROIT - Orioles manager Buck Showater is never one to overanalyze his players, so it was interesting to hear him say that right-hander Jake Arrieta was “lucky” that the Orioles' 5-1 loss to Detroit was being played in Comerica Park's expansive outfield and not Camden Yards. Arrieta was leaving his fastball up. And while the Tigers jumped on Arrieta's mistakes, Showalter said it could have been uglier in a more hitter-friendly park. “He's lucky,” Showalter said. “At our place and a few other places, it'd been really tough.” After allowing a two-run homer to Miguel Cabrera three hitters into the game, Jhonny Peralta's leadoff double one-hopped the fence in right-center field.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -The Orioles' top three pitching prospects were among 12 players sent to minor league camp yesterday in the first cuts of spring. Chris Tillman, Brian Matusz and Jake Arrieta, potentially the strongest trio of pitchers the organization has had in decades, impressed during their short story here. "I've been watching pitchers for a long time," Orioles manager Dave Trembley said, "and I would say those three guys are as good as I have seen at any one time coming up through somebody's system."

Left-hander Zach Phillips, the last roster casualty in spring training, is in the Orioles clubhouse today. He said hello to manager Buck Showalter, then went to his locker. He doesn't know whether he'll be activated today. Part of that might have to do with the weather as well. It's still a consistent rain here at Camden Yards. “I got here, said, 'Hi,' to Buck, told him I was here and [he] said, 'We'll talk later.'” Phillips said. “And that was it.” If Phillips is activated, one possible move would be sending down righty Jason Berken to Triple-A Norfolk.

"I've been waiting just for an opportunity, and I look forward to capitalizing on that and just contributing to continue help this team win," Arrieta said Sunday after watching the Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox. But it's fair to wonder how many more chances Arrieta will get here if he doesn't take advantage of this one. ...

DETROIT - Inside a silent visiting clubhouse at Comerica Park, Orioles right-hander Jake Arrieta sat and stared blankly at his locker until he was summoned into manager Buck Showalter's office. Following the Orioles' 5-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Monday, Arrieta's return to the starting rotation lasted just one night. Selected to fill a void created when right-hander Jason Hammel couldn't make his scheduled start Monday because he was still weak from a stomach virus, Arrieta had an opportunity to jump back into the Orioles' rotation.
