Cubs agree to terms with Kyle Hendricks, Justin Wilson

Cubs agree to terms with Kyle Hendricks, Justin Wilson

However, the two sides finally came to an agreement and avoided arbitration. The Cubs' superstar third baseman is set to receive a record deal for a first-year arbitration eligible contract with $10.85 million in 2018.

The old watermark belonged to Ryan Howard, who - like Bryant - had already been a rookie of the year and an MVP before the Phillies' rewarded him with a $10 million salary for the 2008 campaign. The 27-year-old is eligible for free agency after the 2019 season. He's one of baseball's brightest young stars and overall players. The previous season, he earned National League MVP honors when he hit.292 with 39 homers and 102 RBIs.

While Bryant took a small step back in a few areas in 2017, he actually improved his on-base percentage by cutting down on his strikeouts and walking more than ever before. He more than did his part in leading the Cubs to 103 wins while capturing an NL Central Division title and a World Series ring. He was promoted to the majors early on during the 2015 season and finishing hitting.275 with 26 home runs and 99 RBIs.
