The Cubs and Luis Valbuena won't go to arbitration, according to a report from the New York Post's Joel Sherman.

Valbuena appeared in 108 games for the North Siders last season, turning in a .218/.331/.378 slash line and a career-high 12 home runs.

The now-six-year veteran started more games at the hot corner for the Cubs than anyone else and also made brief appearances at second base, in left field and as a designated hitter during Interleague play. At third, he split time with Cody Ransom and Donnie Murphy. Murphy remains on the 40-man roster while Ransom was released prior to the end of last season.
