Cubs' Willson Contreras: Suspension likely coming following ejection
Contreras was ejected in the top of the fifth inning Friday against the Cardinals and likely faces a suspension after he bounced his face mask and it hit home plate umpire Jordan Baker on the leg.
Contreras and starter John Lackey were ejected after they caused a scene following a missed strike three call that eventually led to an RBI single from Carlos Martinez. Baker obviously missed the call, but the reaction from Contreras, specifically his equipment bouncing and hitting the umpire, will likely lead to a short suspension. He was 1-for-2 with a strikeout before getting tossed. Contreras could appeal any suspension, so it is unclear when his owners may be without him.
