The Milwaukee Brewers are reportedly interested in signing free-agent starting pitcher Jake Arrieta, according to Jon Morosi of the MLB Network.

Per that report, "With Jimmy Nelson expected to miss a portion of 2018 after shoulder surgery, the team is looking for top-of-the-rotation upgrades."

Arrieta, 31, went 14-10 with a 3.53 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 163 strikeouts in 30 starts and 168.1 innings.
