Cubs | Not close to extension for Jeff Samardzija

The Chicago Cubs are not close to signing SP Jeff Samardzija to a long-term contract extension after meeting with him Wednesday, Dec. 11. "There is no trade imminent," executive Theo Epstein said. "We'll see what happens. We hope he's here for a long time." Samardzija is under team control for two more seasons before he becomes a free agent. Samardzija is likely requesting a deal that would pay him $12-17 million per year, and the Cubs aren't close to that request.
