Cubs Agree to 1-Year Deals with Soto, Wells, Stewart, DeWitt, Baker & Volstad – Wrigley Field 1/18/12

Posted on 18 January 2012 by Lou

With the arbitration deadline looming, the Cubs agreed to 1-year deals with all but one arbitration eligible player.  The lone “outcast” is Cubs ace Matt Garza.  Garza went 10-10 with a nifty 3.32 ERA in his 1st season with the Cubs during the 2011 MLB season.  He left 7 additional games with the lead, but came away without a victory after the bullpen blew his outings.  Garza has asked for $12.5 million while the Cubs countered with $7.95 million.  Look for Garza to make between $9-10 million for the 2012 MLB campaign.

Geovany Soto will make $4.3 million in 2012.

Jeff Baker will make $1,375,000 million in 2012.

Blake DeWitt will make $1.1 million in 2012.

Ian Stewart will make $2,237,500 million in 2012.

Randy Wells will make $2,705,000 million in 2012.

Chris Volstad will make $2,655,000 million in 2012.

We’ll keep you posted if we hear anything new on the Garza front…
