CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Cubs have offered contract for next season to pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Travis Wood and reached agreements with catcher George Kottaras and infielder Donnie Murphy.
The moves were announced Monday night.
Kottaras, acquired from Kansas City last week, is due $1,075,000. Murphy will earn $825,000.
Besides Samardzija and Wood, the Cubs also offered contracts to five other arbitration-eligible players: pitchers Pedro Strop and James Russell, infielders Darwin Barney and Luis Valbuena and outfielder Nate Schierholtz.
Pitchers Chang-Yong Lim and Daniel Bard and infielder Mat Gamel were not offered contracts. Lim was not eligible for arbitration.
Chicago's 40-man roster now stands at 37 players.
