With Danny Duffy going on the 15-day DL with left biceps tendinitis, Vargas comes off the DL to take his place. The left-hander had been sidelined by a strained flexor muscle in his elbow.

Young has done all he can to secure a spot in the rotation, giving up just one run across all four wins this season. Next up are the struggling Yankees, who have scored two or fewer runs in six of their last nine losses and one vs. Young on May 15.

Arrieta has posted quality starts in his last three outings, but wasn't happy with his last start vs. the D-backs when he gave up three earned runs over six innings. Maybe being back at Wrigley will help. He has a 2.41 ERA in five home starts.

Hammel made a late adjustment in his last start vs. D-backs, who were jumping on his first pitch. He did not give up a hit after the third inning, but it was too late and he took the loss. He's 1-3 with a 4.99 ERA in eight career games vs. Royals.
