Time will tell if the Cubs' generosity will play well with Bryant's agent, the notorious Scott Boras, when Bryant reaches free agency in 2022.

Toronto's Josh Donaldson, Baltimore's Manny Machado, Washington's Anthony Rendon and the Chicago Cubs' Kris Bryant were among the more than 170 players headed to the exchange.

Bryant agreed to a one-year, $10.85 million contract with the Cubs on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Russell, who received a $2.65 million signing bonus from Oakland in 2012 and was traded to the Cubs in 2014, made $644,000 last season and $527,000 in 2016. The previous season, he earned National League MVP honors when he hit.292 with 39 homers and 102 RBIs.

Cubs avoid arbitration with a trio of players

Avoiding arbitration also has the added benefit of not bringing Russell's recent off-the-field issues into the spotlight again, which would've been fair game in hearings to determine the value of his contract. Howard's first-year arbitration eligible stood for 10 seasons.

Bryant has 94 home runs in his first three seasons in the big leagues to go with a.288 batting average and.388 on-base percentage. He's one of baseball's brightest young stars and overall players. He more than did his part in leading the Cubs to 103 wins while capturing an NL Central Division title and a World Series ring.

Theo Epstein's front office has never gone to arbitration with any player.

There were 189 players eligible for arbitration after teams offered contracts on December 1 to unsigned players on their 40-man rosters, and 173 remained set to swap as of Thursday evening.
