The Chicago Cubs have viewed Anthony Rizzo as a part of their future since they acquired him. Now he’s locked in.
The slugging first baseman and the Cubs agreed Monday to a $41 million, seven-year contract that could be worth up to $68 million over nine seasons. The 23-year-old is hitting .280 with a .352 on-base percentage. He also has nine home runs and 28 RBIs in his third major league season.
