Cubs recall RHP Arrieta before Cardinals’ game

The Chicago Cubs have recalled right-hander Jake Arrieta from

Triple-A Iowa before Friday’s game against the St. Louis

Cardinals.

Arrieta makes his second start of the season for the Cubs as

they begin a three-game series against the Cardinals at Wrigley

Field. Right-hander Eduardo Sanchez was optioned to Triple-A to

open a spot for Arrieta.

Arrieta, acquired from the Orioles on July 2, went 2-2 with a

3.56 ERA in seven starts with Iowa. In his only other start with

the Cubs against the Milwaukee Brewers on July 30, the 27-year-old

Arrieta earned a no-decision after allowing one run and two hits in

six innings.
