Extension talks with 3B Bryant 'got nowhere'
SI.com's Tom Verducci reports that the Cubs tried extending several of their young players over the winter, including Kris Bryant, but every one of the efforts "got nowhere."Advice
: Bryant's agent, Scott Boras, told Verducci that he and Cubs president Theo Epstein "were on the same page" when it comes to Bryant's fit with the team, but Verducci adds that the two sides "made no traction on value." The third baseman will have his first of four arbitration years next winter, as he's not slated for free agency until after the 2021 season. Bryant's teammates Addison Russell and Kyle Schwarber are also in line to hit free agency at the same time. Rotoworld.com
