Cubs Avoid Arbitration With Wilson

According to, Wilson agreed to a $4.25 million deal with the Cubs to avoid salary arbitration. However, the two sides finally came to an agreement and avoided arbitration.

The previous record was set by Ryan Howard, who received $10 million from the Philadelphia Phillies in 2008. Howard's first-year arbitration eligible stood for 10 seasons.

Bryant hit.295 with 29 home runs and 73 RBIs in 2017.

Bryant has been an important piece to the Cubs' puzzle over the last few seasons.

Pakistan made an average score of 282 runs for the loss of 8 wickets in allotted 40 overs. India was set a target of 359 which they completed in 32 overs.

Bryant's seen as one of the centerpieces to bring more rings back to Chicago.

La Stella isn't a starter on the Cubs but he's been a valuable bench bat the last three years, slashing.276/.363/.429 in 395 plate appearances while seeing the majority of his time at second and third base. He's likely to be one of baseball's hottest commodities within coming years, the Cubs are doing everything they can to keep him in Chicago.

The Cubs settled with five of their six arb-eligible players as of Friday afternoon. The Cubs have never gone to arbitration with a player in the Theo Epstein-Jed Hoyer era.

The Cubs also locked up Addison Russell, Justin Wilson and Tommy LaStella for the 2018 season. Right-hander Justin Grimm is the only arbitration-eligible player left who has not signed a deal.
