According to multiple reports, the Cubs tendered contracts for the 2011 season to all arbitration eligible players before Thursday’s deadline.
The Cubs avoided arbitration with Jeff Baker and agreed to a one-year contract worth $1.175 million.
Baker agreed to a one-year contract and avoided arbitration. The feeling is the Cubs will work out deals with Hill and Gorzelanny soon … but Marmol, Marshall and Soto could take a while. Marmol and Marshall are up for substantial raises from their 2010 salaries (Marmol, $2.125 million – Marshall, $950,000) and Soto figures to get a large pay increase as well in his first year of arbitration eligibility (Soto, $575,000 in 2010).
