According to multiple reports, The Cubs are in agreement on a deal with Cody Bellinger, according to Jon Heyman of The New York Post. It will be a one-year, $17.5MM deal, according to Jeff Passan of ESPN.
Bellinger has a .193/.256/.355 slash line with 29 homers in 239 games over the past two seasons. Injuries have hindered Bellinger during this two-year down period. He had surgery in November 2020 after he dislocated his shoulder celebrating a homer in Game 7 of the NLCS against the Atlanta Braves.
Cubs are hoping that Bellinger can regain his form from 2017-2019. He hit .278/.369/.559 and averaged 37 homers per season from 2017 to 2019.
