Cubs minor league OF Ryan Kalish has elected free-agency. Kalish was outrighted to Iowa in May, and because he had been outrighted previously in his career he had the right to elect free-agency immediately, or accept the outright assignment and defer free-agency until the conclusion of the MLB regulsr season, unless he was added back to an MLB Reserve List (40-man roster) in the meantime. Since he was not added back to an MLB 40-man roster, Kalish had until October 15th to file for free-agency as a Article XX-D player. As of September 1st, Ryan Kalish and Tim Federowicz were the only Cubs minor leaguers who were eligible to elect to be an Article XX-D free-agent after the conclusion of the MLB regular season, but Federowicz was added back to the Cubs MLB 40-man roster on September 6th.

tim federowicz...2 months of MLB pay...12 PA, 2 hit, 0bb. nice.

    The Jared Porter story gets worse and does involve the Cubs...

    "The Jared Porter situation is equally a Cubs and a Mets problem. The Mets need a new GM. The Cubs need to reevaluate themselves as an organization.

    and they are including amusement tax, healthcare costs (Doc Adams doesn't come cheap!), social security and political donations to the City and the Governor of Nebraska. 

     

  • bradsbeard 1 day 3 hours ago (view)

    It all depends what you count as "payroll." If you include the $11M in Lester and Descalso's buyouts plus the $3M sent in the Darvish trade you get to somewhere like $145M. If you include the $15M in estimated share of player benefits, you get to $160M. I think that last year, including player benefits, they were slated to be up around $205M for MLB payroll before the pandemic.

    not sure, but i think it's around 130-135m right now even with bryant/baez/contreras still on board...including the 3m to set darvish free and other random $$ expenses on the roster.

    tack on another 3-4m for happ when that gets settled....plus other odds/ends that have a chance to make the roster (s.miller, a.morgan, j.holder, etc) and other pre-arbitration guys...

    cubs still need someone to back up contreras (if he sticks around, which i wouldn't be surprised to see him stick around)...not sure if taylor gushue is gonna be that guy and m.amaya is too young.

     

  • George Altman 1 day 14 hours ago (view)

    Seriously, what's the 2021 payroll number? Currently at approximately $165M and after they trade Bryant, Baez, & Contreras  - $130M. Is that it, $135-140M.

     

  • crunch 1 day 14 hours ago (view)

    Q to the angels...supposedly 1/8m

    pete ricketts (the governor of Nebraska ricketts) is a key part of an anti-gambling Nebraska group called "Gambling With The Good Life" that actively lobbied their open legislature...including a speech by pete...to keep gambling illegal in Nebraska.

    he last spoke for the group to the state government in-session 3 months ago.

    ...it's also worth mentioning all of this is separate from the Draft Kings/Wrigley Field deal that flew under the radar toward the end of the season that will put a sportsbook directly in wrigley field, itself.

    I thought the Cubs had lost a rising star in Porter, seems the just got lucky with him leaving the organization.
