Frobby Posted March 3, 2017 Share Posted March 3, 2017 Strop would have been a free agent after this year, and had already signed for $5.5 mm this year, so the new contract tacks on $5.85 mm for 2018 plus the option. This seems like a pretty team-friendly deal to me. Since being traded to the Cubs, Strop has had a 2.68 ERA in 232 games, averaging 10.8 K/9, 3.4 BB/9, 5.5 K/9, for a total of 4.3 rWAR in 3.3 seasons. We always bemoan the loss of Arrieta, but Strop has been very solid as well. Fortunately, we've had other bullpen guys step up. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
