Chicago Cubs News: Two of the cornerstones in the outfield are arbitration-eligible this winter.

Kyle Schwarber

Another guy who could be on the move this winter, Schwarber is coming off a rough year. In 59 games, he hit .188 with 66 strikeouts, though he hit 11 home runs. Will be dealt to an American League team like the Yankees? Do not rule it out. Projected at $8 million.

Ian Happ

After his resurgent year in 2020, Happ looks like it will be a corner piece for the team in the future. He was among the leaders in OPS in the National League throughout the season and was a nice ambassador for the team. Even in an offseason of potential shakeups, it seems more than likely Happ will stick around. Projected at $3.5 million.

Albert Almora Jr.

After yet another season of struggling to hit at the MLB level, the clock might have struck zero on his time with the organization. A change of scenery might do him well, but there is just little to no value in him at the moment after a fairly promising start to his career. Do not be surprised if he is non-tendered. Projected at around $1.6 million.
