Starting pitcher Yu Darvish and outfielder Jason Heyward are staying with the Chicago Cubs.

Darvish and Heyward both had the right to opt out of their contracts and become free agents but decided against it. Darvish is owed $81 million over the final four seasons of a $126 million, six-year deal, and Heyward is due $86 million in the next four seasons of a $184 million, eight-year contract.
