As pitchers and catchers begin to report to spring training sites around Florida and Arizona, some notable names are without teams. Among them: Former NL Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta. With the Cubs adding Yu Darvish to effectively replace Arrieta in the rotation, it's a guessing game as to where the 31-year-old will end up. In the mind of ex-MLB general manager Jim Duquette, one perfect fit is out there: The Philadelphia Phillies. With a crop of youngsters that includes Rhys Hoskins, J.P. Crawford, Scott Kingery and Jorge Alfaro, the Phillies appear to be on the cusp of a revival. Although the club has already added Carlos Santana on a three-year deal to bolster the lineup, Philadelphia still needs to stabilize its rotation.
