    • Contreras went 1-for-4 with a single, an RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Royals. Batting cleanup as the DH, Contreras drove in a run in the eighth and then stole second off Gabe Speier and Salvador Perez, matching his stolen-base total from all of last season. Contreras also has a couple homers already and is batting north of .300 through 11 games.

    • Contreras went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Royals. Contreras extended the Cubs' lead to 5-2 in the eighth inning and they ended up needing the insurance run. The Chicago catcher has been locked in with a 1.013 OPS through 10 games, and he should continue to post strong numbers from the middle of the team's lineup.

    • Contreras isn't starting Tuesday against the Reds. Contreras had started in each of the Cubs' first four games this year, but he'll take a seat Tuesday after putting together multi-hit performances in the past two games. Victor Caratini will start behind the plate and bat second.

    • Contreras went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Brewers. Contreras was scorching hot in summer camp with six home runs, and now he has his first long ball that counts in 2020. The 28-year-old caught two of the Cubs' first three games, with an appearance at DH in between. That formula could be used the rest of the way to limit the wear and tear on Contreras behind the plate.

    • Contreras is the designated hitter and batting fifth in Saturday's game against the Brewers. In Friday's season opener, Contreras started at catcher while Victor Caratini served as DH. The two are simply flipping roles Saturday, and the Cubs could do this regularly throughout the season to keep both players in the lineup while limiting their time behind the plate.
