According to multiple reports, the Cubs agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal with Geovany Soto on Friday afternoon. In his first year of arbitration eligibility Soto received a nice increase in pay from the $575,000 he earned in 2010. With Geovany Soto under contract for the 2011 season, the Cubs have four arbitration eligible players left unsigned … Tom Gorzelanny, Matt Garza, Sean Marshall and Carlos Marmol.
Talk during the first day of the Cubs Convention suggested that the Cubs could be working on a multi-year deal with Carlos Marmol.
The Cubs have already avoided arbitration with Jeff Baker ($1.175 million) and Koyie Hill ($850,000) this winter.
