Report: Cubs, Jake Arrieta agree to deal worth $10.7M

The Chicago Cubs and ace pitcher Jake Arrieta have avoided arbitration and agreed to a one-year deal worth $10.7M according to reports.

The deal is a record amount for a pitcher for a second-time arbitration pitcher. The 30-year-old Arrieta had a break out season last year with the Cubs, winning the NL Cy Young award after a dominant second half. His pitching helped the Cubs reach the NLCS for the first time since 2003.

Arrieta finished the season 22-6 with a 1.73 ERA. It’s expected that the Cubs and Arrieta will reach a long-term deal in the near future.
