Former Cubs starter Jake Arrieta on Todd Frazier 'I’ll put a dent in his skull'

Tensions were high in Saturday's Philles-Mets game in New York.

Former Cub and current Phillies starting pitcher Jake Arrieta had a rough outing, allowing five earned runs on 11 hits in 4 1/3 innings. Arrieta also hit three batters, including former White Sox third baseman Todd Frazier. Frazier had a few words for Arrieta after getting hit, as did Arrieta for Frazier after the game, a 6-5 Mets win.

Yikes. Frazier left the ballpark before he was able to reply to Arrieta's comment, though he responded ahead of Sunday's game.

Arrieta is also reportedly dealing with a bone spur in his elbow, which might explain his rough outing.
