Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Set for another bullpen Saturday

Arrieta (hamstring) will toss another bullpen prior to Saturday's game, Jesse Rogers of ESPNChicago.com reports.

This side session will determine the next step for Arrieta, as a timetable for his return to the mound will be established by the end of the weekend following his second bullpen in three days. The plan remains for the right-hander to take the mound in a pivotal series against the Brewers in Milwaukee next weekend if he's cleared. Throughout the course of the 2017 season, Arrieta is sporting a 3.48 ERA and 1.20 WHIP over 160.1 innings.
