The Chicago Cubs and third baseman Kris Bryant reportedly reached an agreement Friday on a one-year, $10.85 million contract that would set a new record for a player in his first year of arbitration eligibility.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported details of the deal.

Bryant is coming off his third straight monster season for the Cubs. He posted a .295/.409/.537 slash line with 29 home runs and 38 doubles. His .946 OPS set a new career high and ranked 11th among qualified MLB hitters for the 2017 season.

The 26-year-old Las Vegas native already owns an impressive career resume. He was the National League’s Rookie of the Year in 2015 and the NL’s Most Valuable Player in 2016, the same year he helped lead the Cubs to their first World Series title since 1908.
