ESPN’s Jeff Passan reports the Cubs and free agent slugger Cody Bellinger have agreed to a three-year, $80 million contract.

Passan adds that the agreement also contains opt-outs after each of the first two years of the deal. Bellinger returns to the Windy City just a few weeks after negotiations appeared at a standstill and his ultimate landing spot seemed up in the air. The 28-year-old former NL MVP resurrected his career last season in Chicago, posting a sublime .881 OPS with 26 round-trippers and 20 steals across 556 plate appearances. His return certainly complicates the playing time projections for young sluggers like Christopher Morel and Michael Busch, but he adds some much-needed pop to the Cubs’ lineup for years to come. His underlying batted ball metrics, most notably a lackluster 87.9 mph average exit velocity last year, portend some looming regression in the batting average and over-the-fence pop departments, but he’s clearly returned to relevance as a five-category fantasy contributor until further notice.
