5. Adbert Alzolay: projected $2.3 million

Adbert Alzolay's salary for 2024 is not set in stone yet as he is entering his first year of arbitration. But the 28-year-old is projected to earn anywhere from $2.3 - $2.5 million depending on which source you use. Although his pay will jump significantly from the $744,750 he took home in 2023, the Cubs will still be getting Alzolay at a very reasonable rate, especially if he remains the team's closer.
