Cubs | No extension talks for Jeff Samardzija
Chicago Cubs SP Jeff Samardzija's agent, Mark Rogers, said there is nothing to report in terms of extension talks between his client and the team. However, both sides are expected to re-evaluate their positions on a long-term deal after the 2013 season. The two sides had preliminary talks about a three-year deal in the fall of 2012, but both sides agreed to table discussions for the future. Samardzija is currently under club control until after the 2015 season.
Fantasy Tip: Levine suggests that the Cubs probably won't be able to realistically compete again until 2014, when many of their up-and-coming arms will be major league-ready. Signing Samardzija to a long-term extension appears imminent, especially since Edwin Jackson is the only other starter on the team that is locked up.
