Jake Arrieta turned 32 on Tuesday and did not celebrate as usual at a major-league spring training camp. Arrieta (we included a picture from his rookie year in 2010 with the Baltimore Orioles as a birthday present) remains unemployed 22 days away from Opening Day. Agent Scott Boras spoke with the MLB Network’s Jon Morosi on Wednesday morning and sounded very Scott Boras-ish as he discussed his stable of free agents who must be wondering if a paycheck is anywhere in their future. Morosi asked if there was progress to report on Arrieta, Mike Moustakas (who is on the White Sox’ radar), Greg Holland and Carlos Gonzalez.
Jake Arrieta deal “only a phone call away,” agent Scott Boras says
