Jake Arrieta and the Cubs have agreed to a one-year, $10.7 million contract, the Associated Press reported Friday, avoiding an arbitration hearing that had been scheduled for Tuesday in Arizona.
The Cincinnati Reds have hired former Cubs manager Lou Piniella as a senior advisor to baseball operations, the team announced Saturday on Twitter.
After the success Kris Bryant, Kyle Schwarber and Addison Russell had in 2015, the Cubs hope Albert Almora can follow suit and turn in a breakthrough 2016 campaign.
