Jake Arrieta is getting the start tonight in Detroit and another chance to prove he belongs in the major leagues. "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. ...

You've seen it before. Way too many times before. Orioles right-hander Jake Arrieta has an outing in which he looks great in spurts and terrible in spurts. It happened again Sunday in a 7-4 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. He had three perfect innings. The other two were disasters. And he ended up coughing up the lead in the fifth. Arrieta shouldered the blame. And that's not a problem. Arrieta's not afraid to point the finger at himself. He's also not afraid to work hard, to try and turn things around.

Jake Arrieta arrived as a legit, big league pitcher Saturday night at Angel Stadium. Because after he failed to shut down the Los Angeles Angels with a two-run lead in the fifth inning Saturday, after he imploded and gave up five runs on five singles, three walks and a throwing error during the inning in an eventual 6-3 loss, Orioles manager Buck Showalter didn't pussyfoot around his 26-year-old right-hander's performance. Showalter shows a tendency to protect some of his younger players and won't criticize them in the media, sometimes accentuating positives when there really aren't any. The fact that Showalter was critical of Arrieta on Saturday night shows that Arrieta has arrived.

Right-hander Jake Arrieta was supposed to make his fourth start with the Triple-A Norfolk Tides on Sunday, but he was scratched with a right shoulder strain that he has been dealing with since not feeling right after his last outing May 7. “I think he has some shoulder tenderness,” Showalter said. “I don't know if he'll miss a whole turn or just give him a couple of extra days.” Showalter didn't want to downplay the injury, but said the decision to skip his start was precautionary until the club learns more about what is causing the stiffness and soreness.

The Orioles couldn't have asked more from Jake Arrieta in his first Opening Day start. The 26-year-old right-hander allowed just two hits and two walks while striking out four batters in seven scoreless innings. Only two runners reached second base against Arrieta - and both were with two outs. He threw 97 pitches, 60 of them for strikes. He consistently hit in the mid-90s with his fastball and his slider was particularly sharp. Matt Lindstrom is in to pitch the eighth, making his Orioles' debut.

There was Jake Arrieta on Sunday, on a big-league mound, tossing another useful start for the Orioles. Sure, before Matt Wieters' game-winning home run in the eighth, Arrieta was close to picking up his 10th loss, even though he only surrendered one run. But hey, Arrieta knows close calls: less than three weeks ago, he was nearly sent down to the minors before the organization decided he'd be better off working through his struggles in the bullpen....

Jake Arrieta made the most of his spot start tonight against the Pirates. The 26-year-old right-hander held Pittsburgh to one run on seven hits over seven innings, tying a career-high with nine strikeouts. Arrieta, who was demoted to the bullpen following his last start Friday, has lost eight of his last nine decisions heading into the day, but was given the start Wednesday after left-hander Brian Matusz bunted a ball off his nose Tuesday during pitchers batting practice. That puts Arrieta in line for his first win since May 2, when he threw eight shutout innings at Yankee Stadium.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter often is tough on pitcher Jake Arrieta, pointing out things the 27-year-old right-hander didn't do well when he turns in a strong performance. Tuesday was another adequate but uninspiring start this season from Arrieta, who allowed one run on three hits and five walks in five innings. He threw 112 pitches, 63 strikes, and couldn't record an out in the sixth. Showalter wasn't too critical of Arrieta this time, though. In fact, he seemed annoyed by the line of questioning afterward - basically saying that Arrieta needs to have better control and go deeper in games, but he won Tuesday and that should be the main point of emphasis.

Right-hander Jake Arrieta, who was sent down after four excruciatingly erratic starts with the Orioles, pitched well in his first two starts for Triple-A Norfolk. Last night, his third start with the Tides did not go quite as well. The 27-year-old took the loss after allowing five runs, four of them earned, and seven hits over 6 2/3 innings. One of those runs came when Buffalo's Anthony Gose straight up stole home plate on him. Here's the video: Your browser does not support iframes.

I appreciate a good beard when I see one -- maybe it's because I can't grow one above my neck -- so I am bummed out to see that Orioles starter Jake Arrieta had shaved off his amazing Al Borland beard from FanFest. In case you missed it, the beard was breathtaking .  Yes, I know it's because the Orioles have a facial hair policy, which is ridiculous. How can Koji Uehara grow sideburns like these but Arrieta can't take a page out of Brian Wilson's book ? I guess it's to avoid a situation like this one (sorry, Nick Markakis)
