Bryant Gets $10.85M Deal with Cubs

Going into the deadline, it was thought that Bryant could break the record for a player's first year of arbitration potentially surpassing Ryan Howard's $10M deal from 10 years ago.

Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant has set a record.

"I don't look at "me" records", Bryant told reporters on Friday. His salary went from $760,500 last year to a reported $4.125 million this year. I just feel so grateful and so honored to be with this team. "It just shows the special things he's been able to accomplish and the special teams he's been on as well". He hit 29 home runs and drove in 73 RBI for the Cubs last season, an impressive follow-up to his MVP award winning 2016 campaign.

Baltimore third baseman Manny Machado, like Donaldson eligible for free agency after this season, agreed at $16 million.

Following the sale, the director now directly owns 1,500 shares of the company's stock, valued at approximately $93,945. Capital International Investors increased its position in shares of Schlumberger by 74.8% during the third quarter.

The Cubs also avoided arbitration with shortstop Addison Russell, settling at $3.2 million, according to the Sun-Times.

Over the course of his 23 regular-season relief appearances and 17.2 innings of work as a member of the Cubs in 2017, Wilson amassed a 5.09 ERA alongside 25 strikeouts and 19 walks.

Only reliever Justin Grimm remained unsigned among the Cubs' players eligible for arbitration as of late Friday afternoon.
