Suspended Russell, Cubs agree at $3.4M, $200000 raise

Dennis Wierzbicki- USA Today Sports

His MLBTR salary projection was $4.3 million.

And 2018 MVP runner-up Javy Baez agreed to a $5.2 million deal in his first winter of arbitration eligibility.

Earlier, Kyle Hendricks agreed to a $7.405 million deal, a $3.4 million raise from 2018.

Montgomery, who made $611,250 a year ago, played a critical role in the Cubs' 95-win season when he left the bullpen to make a career-high 19 starts with a 3.69 ERA, filling in for the injured Yu Darvish and ineffective Tyler Chatwood. He was 14-11 with a 3.44 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 199 innings across 33 starts in 2018.

As first reported by Gordon Wittenmyer, the Cubs have settled with Kyle Schwarber on a salary of $3.39 million for 2019.

Meet Wooby, Fallout 76’s only human NPC
Given Fallout 76's online focus and prohibitions on cheating, you're not supposed to get into the dev room used here. Most interestingly, players also discovered a human NPC named " Wooby " standing directly in the center of the area.

Russell hit.250 with five homers, 38 RBIs, a.657 OPS, and an on-base percentage of.317 in 130 games.

It's arbitration season in Major League Baseball, and the Chicago Cubs have officially managed to avoid a potentially dicey labor proceeding with one of their key starters in his second year of eligibility. But of that $3.4 million, Russell will lose around $540,000 as he serves 28 more games on an initial 40-game suspension for violating the joint domestic violence policy last season.

His contract includes four $100,000 bonuses for reaching thresholds of 30, 60, 90 and 120 days on the active roster and a $200,000 bonus for reaching 150. That's around $290,000 more than MLB Trade Rumors had projected and is roughly $2.7 million more than he earned last season.

Left-hander Mike Montgomery reached a $2.44-million deal, per reports.

Teams and players had until Friday at noon to reach agreements on 2019 salary figures or they'd otherwise have to exchange figures that can be used at a hearing with three arbiters deciding the fate.
