Cubs' Brian Duensing: Returns to Cubs on two-year pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duensing and the Cubs agreed Wednesday on a two-year, $7 million contract, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports.

An unremarkable reliever for much of his nine big-league seasons, Duensing earned a slight pay increase after submitting a career-best 2.74 ERA (3.41 FIP) across 62.1 innings in 2017, his first year with the Cubs. The 34-year-old lefty supported the ERA with an 8.8 K/9 rate -- also a career-best mark -- with increased usage in his off-speed pitches seemingly keying his success. Duensing, who proved similarly effective against both right- and left-handed hitters last season, should factor prominently into the setup mix ahead of new closer Brandon Morrow.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Comes to terms with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell agreed to a one-year, $3.2 million contract with the Cubs on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Last season was a disappointment for Russell, as he missed time due to foot and shoulder injuries and his rate stats went in the wrong direction. Russell seems likely to return to a regular role in his age-24 season, but he will need to fare better at the plate or else he could be squeezed out of the lineup more than once or twice per week.

Cubs' Kris Bryant: Sets first-year arb record
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant agreed to a one-year, $10.85 million contract with the Cubs on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The $10.85 million is the most ever for a player in their first year of arbitration eligibility. It's only fitting, as Bryant has already won an MVP, and while his power numbers fell off last year, he had a top-four OBP in the NL. The biggest question heading into 2018 is whether Bryant will continue to bat primarily out of the two hole (411 at-bats last season).

Cubs' Tommy La Stella: Comes to terms with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

La Stella agreed to a one-year, $950,000 deal with the Cubs on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

This is one of the lower figures an arbitration-eligible player will receive, but it's easy to see why. La Stella is strictly a bench player, and has not received 200 plate appearances in a season since 2014. He hit .288/.389/.472 with five home runs in 151 plate appearances with the Cubs in 2017.

Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hendricks agreed to a one-year, $4.175 million deal with the Cubs on Friday to avoid arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today Sports reports.

This marked his first of three offseasons as an arbitration-eligible player. Hendricks was a vital piece of the Cubs' rotation yet again in 2017, posting a 3.03 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with a 123:40 K:BB over 24 starts. Although his number didn't compare to his phenomenal campaign a year prior, Hendricks delivered with a great second half of the season after returning from right hand tendinitis in late July.
