Player Notes
Cubs and RHP Jake Arrieta avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $10.7 million contract.

Advice: The agreed-upon sum is $450,000 above the midpoint that the two sides filed at. It marks the largest one-year deal in history for a pitcher with four years of service time. The reigning National League Cy Young Award winner is fresh off an unbelievable 2015 season where he registered a 1.77 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 236/48 K/BB ratio over 229 innings. He'll be arbitration-eligible again after next season, though there have been rumblings that the Cubs and Arrieta have been in discussions on a multi-year contract extension.

Jake Arrieta is scheduled to have an arbitration hearing with the Cubs on February 9 in Arizona.

Advice: Arrieta requested a $13 million salary and was offered $7.5 million from the Cubs' front office when arbitration figures were exchanged last month. That's a huge gap -- $5.5 million to be exact -- so this will be a very interesting result. Arrieta won the 2015 National League Cy Young Award after posting a 22-6 record, 1.77 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, and 236/48 K/BB ratio across 229 innings. He had a brilliant 0.75 ERA over his final 15 regular-season starts.
