Jake Arrieta could be close to joining the Cubs’ rotation. Arrieta was scheduled to make his third rehab start on Tuesday but rain cancelled the Smokies game and Arrieta’s start was pushed to Wednesday.
The Cubs will reevaluate Arrieta after Wednesday's outing, but barring any setbacks he should return to the Cubs rotation at early as next week. Considering the struggles of Carlos Villenueva, he will likely be the odd man out once Arrieta is activated.
