Javier Baez, Kris Bryant, Carl Edwards Jr., Mike Montgomery, Addison Russell and Kyle Schwarber are also arbitration-eligible this offseason. Under president of baseball operations Theo Epstein, who joined Chicago’s front office prior to the 2012 season, the Cubs have gone to an arbitration hearing only once, when the team prevailed last winter in Justin Grimm‘s case.

Hendricks’ reported salary — in his second year of arbitration — is a raise from the $ 4.175 million he earned last season with the Cubs.

In parts of five seasons with the Cubs, the 29-year-old Hendricks has gone 52-33 with a 3.07 ERA in 133 games, finishing third for the National League Cy Young Award in 2016. The right-hander went 14-11 with a 3.44 ERA in a team-leading 199 innings during 2018.
