Cubs Saved A Little Bit Of Money Avoiding Arbitration With All 7 Eligible Players By Aldo Soto- Jan 11 2019 1293

Suspended shortstop Addison Russell and the Chicago Cubs agreed Friday to a $3.4 million, one-year contract, a relatively small $200,000 raise for a player whose relationship with the team appeared strained after a domestic violence suspension. He would have 151 or 152 days officially remaining in the season once he's eligible to return, depending on whether he's activated on the off day ahead of his May 3 eligible date of return. His MLBTR salary projection was $12.4 million. The incentives are based off how long Russell is on the active roster.

Coming off a campaign in which he was the National League MVP runner-up, infielder Javier Baez settled with the team at $5.2 million. A player in good standing in Russell's situation would be due about $4.5 million for 2019.

Epstein also said: "Before he can play another game in a Cubs uniform, we need to know that he's serious about self-improvement and he's grown to the point where he can represent the club well".

James Kuffel, the township's lone constable, said he knows nearly everyone in the area but has never encountered the Pattersons. On Friday, Fitzgerald said it is believed Patterson was out looking for Jayme when law enforcement came into contact with him.

The Cubs also agreed to terms with Kyle Schwarber, who will earn $3.39 million in his first year of being an arbitration-eligible player.

Bryant received $12.9 million, a $2 million raise from his 2018 salary - which was the largest for a player in his first year of eligibility. He's expected to be at full strength for the start of spring training next month. Hendricks, 29, has been a rock in the Cubs' rotation for the past five years, with a career 3.07 ERA. He made $605,000 in 2018 and hit.238 with 26 home runs, but only one came off a left-handed pitcher. Because he won't be paid while he serves the remainder of his 40-game suspension, the bonus means he can make up to $3.4 million if he's on the roster for the rest of the season.

Outfielder Kyle Schwarber agreed to a 3.39-million deal for 2019.
