Arrieta won't get to make his first start of the season Tuesday night, as the Cubs' game against the Cardinals has been postponed due to the expectation of inclement weather, CSN Chicago's Patrick Mooney reports.

The game probably won't be made up until July or September, and Tuesday's pitching matchup will likely just be bumped back a day to Wednesday. That could end up costing Arrieta a second start next week, but he'd then line up for two outings in the third week of the season.
