Arrieta labored through six innings Saturday, allowing six runs (three earned) on seven hits and two walks while recording seven strikeouts against the Diamondbacks.

The Cubs ended up winning, but Arrieta didn't factor into the decision. He allowed just seven hits in his six innings, but was undone by his teammates' fielding issues and David Peralta's bases-clearing double in the fifth. Nonetheless, fantasy owners have nothing to worry about from Arrieta, who's established himself as a top-15 starter. He'll look to bounce back with a prettier stat line in his next start when the Cubs host Kansas City on Friday.

Arrieta was excellent once again on Sunday, striking out seven and walking just one during seven innings of one-run ball against the Pirates.

Unfortunately, the 29-year-old received no run support on the day and earned a tough-luck loss, which was his fourth of the season. He has pitched very well in 2015, however, and now owns a shiny 2.77 ERA across 52 innings. Arrieta's next scheduled start will come on Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

Arrieta turned things around Tuesday after two poor starts, only allowing one earned run and three hits in eight innings against the Mets.

In his two previous starts, Arrieta had allowed a combined eight runs, and Tuesday's start was his longest of the season. The solid outing pushed his ERA down to 3.00 and his WHIP to 1.07. He'll look to continue this success in his next start Sunday against the Pirates.

Arrieta (3-3) gave up five runs (four earned) on nine hits and a walk while striking out seven over 5.1 innings Thursday in a loss to the Cardinals.

That's a pair of subpar outings in a row for Arrieta, although you have to like the K:BB numbers he's posting despite the uninviting final lines. He's a good bet to turn it around, and Tuesday's start against the Mets will be his next opportunity.

Arrieta allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk over five innings in Saturday's loss to the Brewers, striking out six.

It was his worst start to date, but Arrieta still has a strong 2.84 ERA and 31:8 K:BB ratio in 31.2 innings on the year. Last season's breakout performance doesn't appear to have been a fluke, and the Cubs' ace will look to get back to his winning ways on the road against the Cardinals in his next start.

Arrieta will officially push his start against the Reds back to Sunday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Arrieta was scheduled to pitch Saturday but the game was postponed due to rain. He never began his warmups for Saturday's contest so the 29-year-old should be at full strength heading into Sunday.
