"He's on track and moving forward," Cubs manager Rick Renteria said.

Arrieta will make at least one more Minor League start for Tennessee, and the Cubs will then re-evaluate the right-hander's status at that time. He reported to Spring Training with the shoulder problem.

In his two outings so far, Arrieta has given up one unearned run on three hits and three walks while striking out seven over 6 2/3 innings.
