• To make room on the active roster for Arrieta, who started Friday, the Cubs optioned right-handed pitcher Eduardo Sanchez to Triple-A Iowa. Sanchez was 0-1 with a 5.68 ERA in four relief appearances, giving up four runs over 6 1/3 innings.
• Anthony Rizzo's first Cook-Off for Cancer charity event, held Wednesday night, raised more than $150,000. Players teamed up with restaurants to serve updated takes on traditional ballpark food. All tips and money raised will benefit pediatric cancer care and research.
