Report | Cubs avoid arbitration with Justin Wilson
13 January, 2018, 05:00
The Cubs and third baseman Kris Bryant reportedly reached a deal to give Bryant a record $10.85 million as a first-year arbitration-eligible player and avoid an arbitration hearing, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.
The previous mark was held by Ryan Howard, who was awarded $10 million by a three-person panel in 2008, the Philadelphia first baseman's first year of eligibility for arbitration.
MLB Trade Rumors predicted the salary figures for the five players at $8.9 million (Bryant), $4.9 million (Hendricks), $4.3 million (Wilson), $2.3 million (Russell) and $1 million (La Stella). The biggest question heading into 2018 is whether Bryant will continue to bat primarily out of the two hole (411 at-bats last season).
According to multiple reports, the Cubs also agreed to a one-year contract with infielder, which will pay him $950,000. Bryant agreed to a $10.85 million one-year deal with the Cubs on Friday. Relief pitcher Justin Grimm also is yet to sign a new deal with the Cubs, with teams and players set to exchange arbitration numbers on Friday.
