If You are a Cubs Fan

If you are a Cubs fan, Mark Gonzales’s summary of who will remain and who will not is as good as it can get. I give his top section but at the link you can read the rest:

Who’s likely to return

Player … Position Contract status … Comment


Jake Arrieta … Starting pitcher … Arbitration eligible … Could be last hurrah with free agency looming

Jason Hammel … Starting pitcher … Club control … $12 million option a bargain to exercise

Kyle Hendricks … Starting pitcher … Club control … Maybe ripe for a multiyear deal

John Lackey … Starting pitcher … Signed through 2017 … Will let it all out in likely last season

Jon Lester … Starting pitcher … Signed through 2020 … Stepped up at right time in second half
