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 Cubs settled with three other players on Friday who were arbitration eligible: pitchers Kyle Hendricks ($4.175 million) and Justin Wilson ($4.25 million) along with infielder Tommy La Stella ($950,000). "The records on the field are way more important because when you're doing that, you're helping the team. you get paid millions of dollars to do something you've loved since you were 4 years old". The Cubs won the World Series that year for the first time since 1908.
Hendricks agreed to a one-year, $4.125 million contract, while Wilson will receive a $4.25 million deal. The shortstop likely won't see a huge pay bump with his new deal thanks to Javier Baez's strong 2017 season, but he is still projected to make around $2.3 million next season by MLB Trade Rumors.
