CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs have extended qualifying offers to pitchers Jake Arrieta and Wade Davis, ensuring they will receive draft pick compensation if they sign with another team.

Chicago also claimed right-hander Cory Mazzoni off waivers from the San Diego Padres on Monday. Outfielder Leonys Martín was assigned to Triple-A Iowa, and the Cubs also selected pitcher Matt Carasiti’s contract from their top farm club.

Arrieta, who won the NL Cy Young Award in 2015, went 14-10 with a 3.53 ERA in 30 starts this year. Davis, who was acquired in a trade with Kansas City last December, had 32 saves last season and was an All-Star for the third straight year.

Arrieta and Davis have until Nov. 16 to make a decision on the $17.4 million, one-year qualifying offer. Both players are expected to decline the proposal.
