Arrieta said Tuesday that he expects to be ready to pitch for the Phillies at some point during the first week of the season, Jared Diamond of The Wall Street Journal reports. They're expected to make a strong push for Bryce Harper or Manny Machado next offseason.
So whose names are already circled? "I was talking to Rhys Hoskins on the way out and I said, "Are you excited?"' Middleton said". "But trust me, they are circled and they have been discussed for quite a while internally". (And they still might, it's worth pointing out.) But in the odd, depressed free agent market of the winter of 2017-18, the Phillies also saw the chance to find bargains - and perhaps put themselves in position to contend for a playoff spot a year early. The Phillies forfeited their second-highest selection and $500,000 in global bonus allocation when they signed Santana to a $60 million, three-year contract.
By the end of 2017, the Phillies were at a point in their rebuild where they had cleared the books of nearly any player making significant money.

"In a market place where you have 30 boats in the blue lake of free agency and maybe as many as 12 are no longer fishing and the other five have determined that the gas tax is too great, we're left with a free-agent model that is non-competitive", said Scott Boras, Arrieta's agent. "I think there's talent that needs experience, refinement, attitude, confidence, and certainly when you bring in players like Jake, you've put the cream in the coffee and it's ready to drink". As a result of signing so late, he has missed about four weeks of spring training. Arrieta said he has been throwing 50-65 pitch bullpen sessions every two or three days. "I feel like we're not that far away". The Phillies, who finished last in the NL East at 66-96 a year ago and haven't posted a winning season since 2011, have been among MLB's most active spenders in a slow market.
"This is going to be a pretty ideal marriage", said Gabe Kapler, the Phillies' rookie manager, "[between] what our players need from Jake and what Jake can bring to our clubhouse". A rebuild doesn't mean you can't win now. "That's probably the same mind-set that the players in this organization have now, and I'm no different". I intend to come in here and win right away, even though we are technically in a rebuild.
"We showed [last year] we had some pretty good players", Hoskins said.
