With the decision to keep Hamels, with Heyward's decision to use his option to remain, the Sun-Times is reporting this morning the Cubs are now over the Luxury Tax threshold.

Buster Olney also just sent this out:

"Other teams' read on the Cubs situation this winter: "They have very little payroll flexibility and will have to spend very carefully to affect upgrades for the 2019 season. The days of having a cheap core of young players are over for the front office."

"Between Heyward, Darvish and Chatwood they will make 60 million in 2019, almost 30% of the team's salary space below the $206 million CBT threshold."
