Chicago Cubs Agree To One Year Deal With Jake Arrieta, Avoiding Arbitration
- Updated: February 6, 2016
The defending NL CY Young winner will be spending next year in Chicago at the very least. Cubs ace Jake Arrieta has agreed to a one-year, $10.7 million contract league sources indicate. The deal will prevent both parties from entering arbitration.
Arrieta, who turns 30 in March, had a breakout season last year, helping the Cubs to the National League wild card. He won the NL Cy Young Award after going 22-6 with a 1.77 ERA, easily cruising past most of his previous career highs. The Cubs’ July 2013 trade for Arrieta was a key moment in their move from the bottom of the NL Central to 97 wins last season and a spot in the NL Championship Series, where they were swept by the New York Mets.
Arrieta, who made $3.63 million in 2015, will make $7 million more this season as a result.
