4/19 Arrieta update
Jake Arrieta, slowed this spring by tightness in his right shoulder, will make another rehab start on Monday for Class A Daytona, and hopes that is his last tune-up before he’s ready to rejoin the Cubs. Arrieta has made three rehab starts with Double-A Tennessee but the Cubs are having him start for Daytona in hopes of finding some warmer weather. In his last outing, Arrieta went 5 2/3 innings, and said he’d like to throw 100 pitches on Monday.
“I want to get out there and get up to 100 pitches and kind of fine tune and refine some things and hopefully that’ll be the last stop,” Arrieta said.
