Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Jake Arrieta has been placed on the 10-day disabled listed with an injured right elbow. According to The Athletic, it appears that Arrieta will miss the rest of the 2019 season. 

However, a story on the team’s website said his season is in doubt. He will likely need a surgery to remove a bone spur in his elbow.

Meghan Montemurro, who wrote the story for The Athletic, says that Arrieta will have a arthrogram on Thursday morning. Based on the rests of that test, it will determine the next steps. 

In a corresponding move, the Phillies called up Logan Morrison for Wednesday’s game against the Chicago Cubs. Also, with Arrieta expected to miss Saturday’s game against the San Diego Padres, manager Gabe Kapler moved Zach Eflin back to the rotation. 

He was previously moved to the bullpen in July. 

The 33-year-old Farmington, Missouri native will have one year left on his contract after signing a three-year, $75 million deal before the 2018 season. The team holds a team option in 2021 and 2022. 

He can opt out of his contract following this season. However, the story on Phillies.com says he is unlikely to opt-out of his contract.

This season, he is 8-8 in 24 appearances, including 24 starts with a 4.64 ERA. He has allowed 76 runs (70 earned runs), including 21 home runs, on 149 hits over 135 2/3 innings. 

Arrieta has struck out 110 batters and walked 51. 

In his two-year tenure with the Phillies, he has gone 18-19 with a 4.26 ERA in 55 appearances, including 55 starts. He has allowed 169 runs (146 earned runs), including 42 home runs, on 314 hits over 308 1/3 innings. 

Arrieta has struck out 248 batters and walked 108.
