Cubs agree to deal with Ian Happ to avoid arbitration


by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Cubs have an agreement in place for one of their young stars.

Ian Happ and the Cubs have agreed to a $6.85 million salary for 2022 to avoid arbitration according to multiple reports.

Tuesday was the deadline for players and teams to exchange salary figures for the upcoming season.

In 2021, Happ hit .226 with 25 homers, 66 RBIs, and .757 OPS.

However, he was sizzling towards the end of last season with a .323 average with 14 homers in the last 44 games.

Willson Contreras is the lone Cubs that is still arbitration-eligible for the 2022 season. If they disagree on a figure today, then a panel of arbitrators will decide on a figure.
