CHICAGO (AP) — Suspended shortstop Addison Russell and the Chicago Cubs agreed Friday to a $3.4 million , one-year contract, a relatively small $200,000 raise for a player whose relationship with the team appeared strained after a domestic violence suspension.Russell accepted a 40-game suspension last October for violating baseball’s domestic violence policy following allegations made by his ex-wife. He missed the final 11 regular-season games plus the wild-card playoff loss and will be eligible to return May 3, barring postponements.Russell will lose pay during the suspension. He can earn an additional $600,000 in roster bonuses based on days on the active roster: $100,000 each for 30, 60, 90 and 120 Colby Rasmus Jersey , and $200,000 for 150.Kris Bryant agreed to a $12.9 million, one-year deal, a raise from $10.85 million. Also agreeing to one-year deals were Javier Baez ($5.2 million), Kyle Schwarber ($3.39 million) and pitchers Kyle Hendricks ($7.405 million), Carl Edwards Jr. ($1.5 million) and Mike Montgomery ($2.44 million).The Cubs won 95 games and made the playoffs for the fourth year in a row. But a wild-card loss to Colorado was unsatisfying after three straight trips to the NL Championship Series and a drought-busting World Series championship in 2016.Bryant made two trips to the disabled list last season because of inflammation in his left shoulder. The 2016 NL MVP set career lows in games played (102), batting average (.272), home runs (13) and RBIs (52).Baez — the MVP runner-up to Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich — set career-highs with a .290 batting average , 34 homers and a league-leading 110 RBIs.Schwarber hit .238 with 26 homers and 61 RBIs after struggling in a big way the previous year coming off a knee injury.Hendricks finished 14-11 with a 3.44 ERA. The right-hander was 8-2 with a 2.51 ERA in his final 12 outings.Montgomery was 5-6 with a 3.99 ERA in 38 games — 19 starts. Edwards had a career-low 2.60 ERA in 58 games, though he had 12 walks in 11 appearances in September. NEW YORK (AP) — Left-hander CC Sabathia had a stent inserted after a blockage was found in an artery from his heart, and the New York Yankees anticipate the 38-year-old pitcher will report to spring training on time.“CC was experiencing some chest pain which turned out to be a blockage in one artery to his heart,” Kyle Thousand, Sabathia’s agent, said Friday in a statement. “A procedure was done to insert a stent to clear the blockage on Dec. 11. CC is doing great and will be reporting to spring training on time to get ready to play for his upcoming final season in 2019.”Sabathia’s procedure was first reported by The Athletic.“We are thankful that CC was smart enough to convey his symptoms to our medical staff, and in turn they immediately engaged New York-Presbyterian Hospital, who quickly determined the root cause of what ailed him Andrew Cashner Jersey ,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said in a statement. “We are also encouraged that the procedure CC underwent was performed as planned.”Sabathia is listed as 6-foot-6 and 300 pounds, and his weight has contributed to a chronic right knee problem that has required several operations.“We will continue to follow the guidance and expertise of the doctors, who have conveyed that CC will report as scheduled to Tampa in February to prepare for the 2019 season,” Cashman said.The 2007 AL Cy Young Award winner with Cleveland, Sabathia is 246-153 with a 3.70 ERA and 2,986 strikeouts in 18 major league seasons. He was 9-7 with a 3.65 ERA in 29 starts last season.Sabathia agreed in early November to an $8 million one-year contract and said 2019 will be his last season.
