Will a change of scenery help Jake Arrieta rediscover his magic touch?

The Milwaukee Brewers are interested in signing Arrieta this winter as a free agent, MLB Network’s Jon Morosi, citing a source, reported Monday on Twitter.

The Brewers are keen to bolster their starting rotation due to the injury Jimmy Nelson suffered in September and his subsequent surgery.

Arrieta, 31, is coming off a lackluster 2017 season in which he failed to reach the astronomical heights of his previous three campaigns with the Chicago Cubs. Yet he remains a dependable starter capable of winning double-digit games, so he could cash in on the open market.
