Donaldson and Toronto agreed at $23 million, the largest one-year deal for an arbitration-eligible player.

The Chicago Cubs and Kris Bryant came down to the wire with arbitration talks on Friday before 1 p.m.'s deadline. The 32-year-old, a three-time All-Star, topped the $21,625,000, one-year deal covering 2018 agreed to last May by outfielder Bryce Harper and Washington.

The Cubs and third baseman Kris Bryant reportedly reached a deal to give Bryant a record $10.85 million as a first-year arbitration-eligible player and avoid an arbitration hearing, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

While Donaldson broke a mark set past year, Bryant's deal eclipsed the previous mark was held by Philadelphia's Ryan Howard, who was awarded $10 million by a three-person panel in 2008. I just feel so grateful and so honored to be with this team. Bryant, of course, has earned every penny, winning one National League MVP award and finishing in the top-11 in voting each of his first three years in the majors.

The Cubs settled with three other players on Friday who were arbitration eligible: pitchers Kyle Hendricks ($4.175 million) and Justin Wilson ($4.25 million) along with infielder Tommy La Stella ($950,000). He played a vital role in winning the Cubs' first World Series titles in over 100 years back in 2016, including making the final out of the World Series.
