CHICAGO – The Chicago Cubs today announced the following roster moves for Friday, November 18, in conjunction with today’s deadline to tender/non-tender 2023 contracts for unsigned players on their 40-man roster.

The Cubs have agreed to terms on 2023 contracts with right-handed pitchers Adrian Sampson and Rowan Wick, thus avoiding salary arbitration with both. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Codi Heuer, and infielders Nico Hoerner and Nick Madrigal. Overall, a total of 31 players from the Cubs 40-man roster were tendered 2023 contracts today – the four arbitration-eligible players listed above and 27 players not yet eligible for arbitration.

The Cubs have non-tendered three players: left-handed pitcher Brailyn Marquez and right-handed pitcher Alexander Vizcaíno, both of whom were not yet eligible for arbitration, as well as outfielder Rafael Ortega, who was arbitration eligible.

The Cubs 40-man roster now stands at 37 players.
