  • Cubs' Shelby Miller: Signs as non-roster invitee

    Miller signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Sunday as a non-roster invitee, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    Miller didn't make the Brewers' Opening Day roster in 2020 and opted out of the season at the beginning of August. He'll get to compete at major-league spring training in 2021 and will attempt to earn a spot in the big leagues after struggling over the past several years. Miller made 24 appearances (12 starts) for the Diamondbacks and Rangers in 2018 and 2019, posting a 9.15 ERA and 1.98 WHIP over 60 innings during that time.

  • Cubs' Kris Bryant: Signs one-year deal

    Bryant and the Cubs agreed to terms on a one-year, $19.5 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Bryant gets an unusually small raise for a player who signed for $18.6 million last offseason, though it's hard to say he deserves anything more given the extent of his struggles in 2020. He hit just .206/.293/.351, well below the .284/.385/.516 line he managed over his first five seasons. Whether or not another team wants to trade for Bryant on that salary in hopes of a bounceback season in his final year of arbitration remains to be seen.

  • Cubs' Willson Contreras: Avoids arbitration

    Contreras and the Cubs agreed to a one-year, $6.65 million contract Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

    Contreras has been the subject of trade rumors this winter, but he remains in Chicago for now. Wherever he winds up, he'll remain one of the top offensive catchers in the game, as he's posted an average or better slash line in each of his five big-league seasons, including a .243/.356/.407 line last season.

  • Cubs' Javier Baez: Agrees to one-year deal

    Baez and the Cubs agreed to a one-year, $11.65 million contract on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

    Arbitration raises are as much about experience as performance, a situation Baez will be quite happy with following his awful 2020 season. His performance at the plate completely collapsed, as he hit just .203/.238/.360 after posting a .286/.321/.544 line over the previous two seasons. He struck out 31.9 percent of the time while posting an anemic 3.0 percent walk rate. His defense at shortstop remained strong, but it will be hard for the Cubs to justify giving him an everyday role if he continues to reach base in less than a quarter of his plate appearances going forward.

  • Cubs' Daniel Ferreira: Lands with Cubs

    Ferreira signed with the Cubs on Friday, Baseball America reports.

    Ferreira has a great right-handed swing. He is short to the ball and explodes through the zone. The Dominican outfielder should be able to spray the ball to all fields, but it is unclear how much speed he will provide on the bases.

  • Cubs' Cristian Hernandez: Lands with Cubs for $3 million

    Hernandez signed with the Cubs on Friday for $3 million, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

    One of the most hyped teenagers in this year's international signing class, Hernandez has a prototypical 6-foot-2, 175-pound frame that elicits comparisons to some of the best big-bodied shortstops of the past few decades. He excels at generating loft, which coupled with his plus bat speed, should lead to easy plus power down the road. Hernandez also has the speed to steal double-digit bases early in his career.

  • Cubs' Adam Morgan: Trending toward March return

    Morgan (elbow), who agreed to a contract with the Cubs on Sunday, is expected to be ready for game action at some point in March, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Upon undergoing surgery in October to repair the flexor tendon in his left elbow, Morgan initially appeared set to miss 6-to-8 months. Based on how his rehab has progressed thus far, Morgan looks like he'll be able to meet the short end of that recovery timeline, which could give him a shot at being ready for Opening Day. The 30-year-old joined the Cubs on a minor-league deal, so his lack of a 40-man roster spot will still hurt his case for claiming a bullpen role to begin the season.

  • Cubs' Adam Morgan: Latches on with Cubs

    Morgan (elbow) signed a minor-league deal with the Cubs on Sunday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    The 30-year-old elected free agency after being outrighted off the Phillies' 40-man roster in late October, and he'll now receive another opportunity with the Cubs. Morgan underwent elbow surgery in early October that typically carries a 6-to-8 month recovery timeline, so he's unlikely to be ready for Opening Day.
