Cubs agree to terms with Kyle Hendricks, Justin Wilson

Associated Press
Kris Bryant of the Cubs is one of several talented third basemen facing arbitration

The Phillies and first baseman Ryan Howard - who also had an MVP and Rookie of the Year award at that service-time level - set the former record for a one-year deal of $10 million in 2008. The Cubs and Bryant avoided arbitration, and the 26-year-old third baseman receives a hefty raise after making $1.05 million last year. As a whole last season, which was split between the Cubs and Tigers, the seasoned southpaw tallied a 3.41 ERA, 80 strikeouts and 35 walks.

The agreements were reached hours before teams and arbitration eligible players face a noon deadline to reach an agreement or exchange salary figures that could possibly lead to a hearing next month. He played a vital role in winning the Cubs' first World Series titles in over 100 years back in 2016, including making the final out of the World Series. Earlier Friday, the Cubs settled with reliever Justin Wilson ($4.25 million), right-hander Kyle Hendricks ($4.125 million) and infielder Tommy La Stella ($950,000).


The Cubs have avoided going to arbitration with a group of key players Friday. The Cubs have never gone to arbitration with a player in the Theo Epstein-Jed Hoyer era. As a result, Wilson will now reportedly earn a $4.25 million salary in 2018.
