Arrieta could be called up to start for the Cubs on July 30. With the Cubs playing a doubleheader against the Brewers and Matt Garza no longer in the rotation, they'll be scrambling for a starting pitcher. Arrieta is 0-2 with a 4.03 in five starts with Triple-A Iowa since his trade along with Pedro Strop for Scott Feldman from Baltimore on July 2. While his K rate rose nicely with Triple-A Norfolk this year, it was offset by a corresponding jump in his BB/9 ratio, something he will need to correct to stick and succeed with the Cubs. He has done a better job of limiting walks for Triple-A Iowa, and even if he is not called up Tuesday, expect the Cubs to give him a chance at the big league level before season's end.
