Cubs Avoid Arbitration With Kyle Hendricks

A player in good standing in Russell's situation would be due about $4.5 million for 2019. The incentives are based off how long Russell is on the active roster.

Russell can make up to a total of $4 million with roster time incentives, pro-rated, after serving his suspension for violation of domestic abuse policies. Combined with Kyle Hendricks' $7.4 million, the Cubs are trending right around those early projections.

He missed the final 11 games of the season on administrative leave as Major League Baseball concluded its investigation.

After tendering him a contract in December, the Cubs said they were monitoring Russell's off-the-field progress as he goes through counseling and therapy.

The Cubs avoided arbitration with all seven of their eligible players Friday by settling on salary figures for the 2019 season.

Bryant, who missed lengthy stretches in 2018 because of a left shoulder injury, gets a raise of slightly more than $2 million in his second year of arbitration eligibility.

Coming off a campaign in which he was the National League MVP runner-up, infielder Javier Baez settled with the team at $5.2 million.

Montgomery, who made $611,250 past year, played a critical role in the Cubs' 95-win season when he left the bullpen to make a career-high 19 starts with a 3.69 ERA, filling in for the injured Yu Darvish and ineffective Tyler Chatwood.

Russell hit.250 with five homers, 38 RBIs, a.657 OPS, and an on-base percentage of.317 in 130 games.

Hendricks isn't due for free agency until 2021, but for now, he's due for a nice bump to his compensation entering his age-29 season, as he took home $4.175 previous year.
