Stewart, 27, hit a .201/.292/.335 batting line with 5 home runs and 17 RBI’s in 55 games this year with the Cubs. Steward hopes he’ll have a healthy season next year as he has been playing with a broken bone in his wrist for the past two years.

The 27 year-old was non-tendered by the Cubs and he was set to make $2.3MM in arbitration.
