He's asking for $4.55 million and the team is offering $4.2 million.Escobar started last year in a utility role and wound up providing the Twins a steady bat and glove when circumstances forced him into an everyday spot in the lineup. After taking over at third base for the final six weeks when Miguel Sano was injured, the 5-foot-10, 185-pound Escobar finished with a career-high 21 home runs.___More AP baseball:

CHICAGO (AP) — Kris Bryant put up another big number on Friday.Bryant agreed to a $10.85 million, one-year deal with the Chicago Cubs, a record for a player eligible for arbitration for the first time."I guess for some players it might be stressful, but I really enjoyed the whole process of it," Bryant said before the start of the team's annual fan convention. "You play to get to this point in your career, and I've put in so much hard work behind the scenes to get to this point. It just feels so rewarding."The previous mark was held by former Philadelphia slugger Ryan Howard, who was awarded $10 million by a three-person panel in 2008. The Cubs and Bryant avoided arbitration, and the 26-year-old third baseman receives a hefty raise after making $1.05 million last year."I don't look at money records," Bryant said. "I guess the records on the field are way more important, because when you're doing that, you know, you're helping the team. But it really is a cherry on top when you get pa... [More]

CHICAGO (AP) — There was no surprise return for Jake Arrieta. No dramatic entrance for Yu Darvish, Alex Cobb or Greg Holland, either.Not even close.The Chicago Cubs settled five of their six potential arbitration cases before the start of their annual fan convention on Friday, including a record $10.85 million, one-year deal for third baseman Kris Bryant. But they remain at an impasse when it comes to another free-agent addition or a big acquisition via trade — a common refrain during one of the slowest winters for baseball in a long time."We're not done. We have confidence in this group if this is the 25 we end up taking to spring training," president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said. "But realistically, we'd certainly like to add another pitcher. I like the talent that we have right now, but I think we could certainly add to the depth, and you can do that through depth moves or you can do it through adding another real quality pitcher and bolster the depth even more that ...

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Gerrit Cole remains a Pittsburgh Pirate. For now, at least.The Pirates and their top starting pitcher avoided arbitration by agreeing on a one-year deal worth $6.75 million on Friday. Cole went 12-12 with a 4.26 ERA while making a career-high 33 starts in 2017. He has one year of arbitration remaining and could command a hefty salary bump in 2019, one of the reasons the Pirates have explored trading him in recent weeks.Pittsburgh also reached agreements with shortstop Jordy Mercer and reliever George Kontos. Mercer, who will make $6.75 million in 2018, hit .255 with 14 home runs and 58 RBIs last season. Kontos, acquired from San Francisco at the trade deadline last July, will make $2.725 million.Closer Felipe Rivero remains eligible for arbitration. He is asking for $2.9 million and the team is offering $2.4 million.___More AP baseball:

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians settled all their arbitration cases but one. Once again, Trevor Bauer is an exception.The club avoided arbitration with starter Danny Salazar and right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall on Friday, agreeing to one-year contracts for the 2018 season.Salazar, who is coming off an inconsistent and injury-slowed 2017, will make $5 million next season. Chisenhall's contract is worth $5,587,500. He's projected to be the starting right fielder for the AL Central champions.Cleveland also reached agreement with reliever Zach McAllister on a $2.45 million contract.The Indians, however, didn't settle with Bauer before the deadline to exchange salary figures. The enigmatic right-hander won a career-high 17 games last season and developed into a vital member of Cleveland's rotation. He made 31 starts and established himself as a premier pitcher, known as much for his array of pitches as his hobby of flying drones or unique training regimen.Bauer went 10-1 with a 2.60... [More]

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Relievers Jake Diekman and Keone Kela and infielder Jurickson Profar agreed one-year contracts with the Texas Rangers, who avoided arbitration with all of their eligible players.Diekman gets $2,712,500 under Friday's agreement, a raise from $2.55 million. Kela's salary is $1.2 million, up from $543,210, and Profar will make $1.05 million, an increase from $1,005,000.A 30-year-old left-hander, Diekman is coming off a season shortened to the final month because of three surgeries to replace his colon to ease ulcerative colitis, a digestive condition he has dealt with much of his life. Diekman was scoreless in 10 of 11 appearances after his season debut Sept. 1 and finished with a 2.53 ERA.The 24-year-old Kela is a candidate to be the Texas closer. The right-hander led AL relievers by holding opponents to a .135 batting average. He missed about two months with two stints on the disabled list with right shoulder soreness.Once considered the team's top prospect, the 24-year-old Profar appeared in 22 games last season after playing five positions in 2016. He was 19 when he made his major league debut and has a .229 average in 206 games.___More AP baseball:
