The Chicago Cubs made qualifying offers to standout pitcher Jake Arrieta and closer Wade Davis on the opening day of free agency on Monday.

The team made the $17.4 million one-year offers to both players so if they sign elsewhere, the North Siders will get a 2018 draft-pick compensation in return per player. The players will have 10 days to accept or reject the qualifying offer. Both players will more than likely turn down the one-year deals.

For the season, Davis had 32 saves to go with a 2.30 ERA, 79 strikeouts, and 1.14 WHIP. His 32 saves ranked him fifth in the National League. In his career, he has 79 saves with 3.45 ERA.

In 2017, Arrieta was 14-10 with 3.53 ERA with 163 strikeouts and 1.22 WHIP.
