Cubs, Bote agree to 5-year deal through ‘24

Chicago Cubs infielder David Bote, who burst onto the national scene with a walk-off grand slam last season on Sunday Night Baseball, has been rewarded with a new, five-year deal through the 2024 season.

Bote, 25, will make $15 million guaranteed over the course of the contract, which begins in 2020. The Cubs hold team options of $7 million for 2025 and $7.6 million for 2026, with a buyout of $1 million, that could increase the value of the deal to $28.6 million if exercised, a source told ESPN.

All the young stars are getting locked up.

Who won arbitration in 2019— players or owners? - Beyond the Box Score

Takeaways

These settlements have long-term consequences. Each player’s salary is a major determining factor in next year’s arbitration. It’s impossible to tell exactly, but losing $100,000 as a Super Two probably costs a player more than $1 million over the entirety of their arbitration years.

Once again, the players need to do a better job. This is at least the second year in a row in which they’ve failed to meet projections. Given that the players who went through with arbitration did so much better, more of them should play hardball in negotiations. If the team isn’t willing to meet demands, let the arbiter decide. It seems to work out better in the end.
