Kris Bryant Receives $10.85 Million Arbitration Settlement

Kris Bryant Receives $10.85 Million Arbitration Settlement

The Chicago Cubs will be facing some tough arbitration decisions this winter, but they have settled with at least one player as reliever Justin Wilson has reportedly agreed to a new deal.

Cubs and 3B Kris Bryant avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $10.85 million contract. Hendricks will earn $4.125 million.

No Cub has ever gone to arbitration with Theo Epstein in charge and it doesn't look like that will change this year. Infielder Tommy La Stella will make $950,000 this coming season. Keuchel, the 2015 AL Young Award victor, went 14-5 with a 2.90 ERA and 125 strikeouts in the regular season and was 2-2 with a 3.58 ERA in five postseason starts.

The previous record was set by Ryan Howard, who received $10 million from the Philadelphia Phillies in 2008.

Bryant and Howard each won National League Rookie of the Year and Most Valuable Player awards in their first two seasons in Major League Baseball.

Shortstop Addison Russell will get $3.2 million.

Donaldson and Toronto agreed at $23 million, the largest one-year deal for an arbitration-eligible player. He was ranked No 3 in WAR during 2016 and No. 26 in 2017.

Bryant was among the five arbitration-eligible Cubs players who reached agreement with the team before the deadline for unsigned players to exchange salary arbitration figures with the club.

Bryant hit.295 with 29 homers and 73 RBIs past year, when he made $1.05 million.
