CHICAGO (AP) - Infielder Luis Valbuena has agreed to a $930,000, one-year contract with the Chicago Cubs, nearly double the $495,200 he made last year.
Valbuena , who avoided arbitration with Thursday's deal, has a .224 average in five big league seasons, including three with Cleveland. He played in 90 games for the Cubs last season, batting .219 with 28 RBIs, 36 walks and 26 runs in 265 at_bats.
Three Cubs remain eligible for arbitration: right-handers Matt Garza and Jeff Samardzija, and left-hander James Russell.
