Arrieta will start Wednesday against the Cardinals, which will be his final start of the season, the Daily Herald's Bruce Miles reports.

He was originally expected to make two starts next week, but he will be pushed back a day, and Kyle Hendricks will instead be the Cubs' two-start pitcher. Arrieta will be one of the more interesting starting pitchers to evaluate heading into the 2015 season, as he pitched like a true ace for the first time during his 2014 campaign.

Arrieta was absolutely dominant Tuesday, giving up just one hit and one walk in nine shutout innings with 13 strikeouts against the Reds en route to notching his ninth win of the season.

He took a no-hitter into the eighth inning, but gave up a one-out double to Brandon Phillips. However, his pitch count was low enough that even with the no-hitter no longer a possibility, Arrieta was allowed to finish the contest, and needed just 109 pitches (74 strikes) to do so. He is scheduled to make just one more start this season, next Tuesday against the Cardinals.
