Carrie Muskat, who covers the Cubs at MLB.com/Cubs.com, tweeted the following on Arrieta's status.
#Cubs Jake Arrieta will make at least one more start for AA Tennessee. Renteria says reports from Thursday's outing were goodOur own Matt Musico reported on April 1 that Arrieta was dealing with shoulder discomfort since the start of spring. He thought he might have been ready by Opening Day, but the Cubs used a conservative approach with him in attempts to prevent the possibility of a lingering injury during the season.
