    Jon Lester option declined by Cubs, lefty becomes free agent

    Jon Lester’s $25 million mutual option for 2021 was declined Friday by the Chicago Cubs, completing a $155 million, six-year contract and allowing the 36-year-old left-hander to become a free agent. Lester is owed a $10 million buyout: $2 million on each Dec. 31 from 2022 through 2026. Lester was 3-3 with a 5.16 ERA in 12 starts this year with 42 strikeouts and 17 walks.

    The Cubs will pick up Anthony Rizzo's 2021 option, per report

    It’s been eminently clear since at least 2014 that Anthony Rizzo was the undisputed leader of the Cubs team that eventually won the World Series. You do remember the Rizzo/Aroldis Chapman kerfuffle in Cincinnati in July 2014, right? Both on and off the field Rizzo has exhibited these leadership skills.

    Brach exercises option for $2,075,000 Mets salary for '21

    Pitcher Brad Brach exercised the 2021 player option in his contract with the New York Mets on Thursday, a deal worth a $2,075,000 salary for next season. The 34-year-old right-hander was 1-0 with a 5.84 ERA in 14 relief appearances in his first full season with the Mets, who signed him in August 2019 after he was released by the Chicago Cubs. A veteran of 10 major league seasons, Brach is 37-27 with a 3.39 ERA for San Diego (2011-13), Baltimore (2014-18), Atlanta (2019), the Cubs (2019) and the Mets (2019-20).
