Philadelphia Phillies starter Jake Arrieta will continue to pitch as the organization evaluates his long-term health related to bones spurs in his throwing elbow.

Phillies manager Gabe Kapler discusses the current situation regarding Arrieta during an appearance on 94WIP in Philadelphia.

Kapler added that even a limited Arrieta could potentially be better than any other pitching option.

“He’s having a harder time getting extended the way he normally does, especially on that curveball. This is limiting his ability to throw the ball where he wants to throw it,” Kapler said (h/t ESPN). “All of that said, Jake is a competitor, and for the Phillies, it’s always worth considering if Jake at 85 percent of himself is a better option than what we have at Triple-A.”

According to Newsday’s Tim Healey, the Mets have discussed Syndergaard with around six teams, adding that there’s “minimal urgency” on the Mets’ part to trade Syndergaard.

Per the report, the Mets would need to be “wowed” in order to move Syndergaard.

Syndergaard, 26, isn’t having the kind of season he is accustomed to, pitching to the tune of a 4.68 ERA, and is posting other career-low numbers.
