NEW YORK -- They might draw less attention than others in their respective rotations, but Jake Arrieta and Jacob deGrom have been aces for their clubs this season. They'll square off in the finale of a three-game series between the Cubs and Mets on Thursday in Citi Field.
Arrieta holds a 7-5 record and a 2.94 ERA this season, holding down the top end of the Cubs' rotation while Jon Lester works through his transition to the National League. Since joining the Cubs in 2013, Arrieta has pitched to a 2.85 ERA.
