    A bird in the minors is worth a Busch in the Majors

    This is not surprising. They want him to get at bats. They also need to find out what they have in Busch at 1B.

    Craig Counsel, Shota Imanaga, Hector Neris, and Cody Bellinger seems like a pretty good free agent haul for the Cubs this winter.

    The Cubs also got some lottery tickets with Garrett Cooper, Dominic Smith and David Peralta.​

    One of free agency’s top hitters reached an agreement overnight, as center fielder Cody Bellinger is in agreement with the Cubs on a three-year, $80MM deal per Jeff Passan of ESPN. Per Passan, the deal includes opt-outs following the 2024 and 2025 seasons. Passan adds that the deal is slightly frontloaded, with Bellinger making $30MM in 2024 and 2025 with a $20MM salary in 2026.​

    Eric Hosmer announced his retirement at age 34 on Wednesday after 13 big-league seasons.

    The eight-year, $144 million contract signed with the Padres runs through 2025, but since he was released by the Cubs last season, he’s already getting that in full. Hosmer hit .276/.335/.427 with 198 homers and 893 RBI for the Royals, Padres, Red Sox and Cubs in his 13 seasons. He was a key part of the Royals’ World Series victory in 2015, but his best season was in 2017, when he hit .318/.385/.498 with 25 homers.

    Agent Scott Boras often approaches owners directly when it comes to talks for star players. Says Tom Ricketts: “I don’t think that helps.”

    Potential for Liam Hendricks Deal May Be Growing, Cubs Also Monitoring Noah Syndergaard & Michael Lorenzen


    Oops Liam is too expensive. Signs with the Red Sox 2 years $10M.

    President of baseball operations, Jed Hoyer, hinted there might not be more additions coming for the Cubs during his opening Spring Training press conference.
    Brett Taylor of Bleacher Nation summarized what Hoyer said on this front and wrote, "What inning is it in the offseason? The closer is certainly warming up, says Jed. Still in contact with free agents, may add more, but at this point we're focusing on the guys who are here."
