CHICAGO -- Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Jake Arrieta made a successful rehab start on Saturday night for the Tennessee Smokies, the Cubs' Double-A affiliate.

Arrieta tossed three innings of no-hit ball, striking out three and walking just one, but took the loss after allowing an unearned run on a wild pitch. Arrieta, who is working his way back from right shoulder tightness, threw just 42 pitches.

Arrieta is expected to make at least two more rehab starts before returning to the Cubs rotation, which possibly could happen as early as late April. Arrieta, who the Cubs acquired last July in a trade with the Baltimore Orioles, started nine games for Chicago last season, posting a 3.66 ERA in his 51 2/3 innings of work.
