Jake Arrieta leaves Cubs game in 3rd inning with leg injury

PITTSBURGH – Jake Arrieta is not out of the woods yet, but it could have been a lot worse.

Arrieta, who racked up a 4-1 record with a 1.21 ERA in August, left Monday’s game against the Pirates in noticeable pain.

It looked bad, especially when he couldn’t even finish a practice pitch to test his right leg afterward.

But, for now, it’s being chalked up as just cramps.
