Adding to that list is shortstop Addison Russell, who according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today has signed a one-year, $3.4 million deal.

Nightengale also pointed out that Russell can make $600,000 in bonuses if he's on the roster for 150 days, which is not a guarantee considering his off-the-field issues, which includes domestic violence allegations.
The Cubs also settled with right-handed pitcher Carl Edwards Jr. on a one-year, $1.5 million deal according to Patrick Mooney of The Athletic.

Edwards continued his excellence out of the Cubs bullpen in 2018, posting a career-best 2.60 ERA, with 67 strikeouts over 52 innings. For Chicago, they're hoping to get back to the postseason after missing out in 2018.
These moves will surely help the club out, with Spring Training inching closer and closer.
