'90 Day Fiance': Fans slam Brittany on Instagram, ask her to remove her weave
1

Kris Bryant - $12.4 million

Of the five players here, Bryant has the highest projected arbitration salary. However, he could be getting a raise of just $1.55 million over his 2018 earnings ($10.85 million). The key, for Bryant, will be returning for a healthy campaign for the 2019 MLB season.

2

Kyle Hendricks - $7.6 million

Over the course of the 2018 season, Hendricks compiled a record of 14-11 overall, with a 3.44 ERA and 161 strikeouts. Those aren't career-high numbers, but they rank statistically among his three best seasons with Chi-Town since 2014. He's due a pay raise of at least $3.43 million over his 2018 salary ($4.175 million).

Javier Baez - $7.1 million

Baez is coming off an MVP-worthy season, so his pay boost is well-deserved. He'll receive the biggest raise of the five players here, possibly jumping up $6.44 million from his paltry $657,000 in 2018. Fans loved what they saw from Javy this past season, and are hoping for more of the same next go-round.
