Contreras went 4-for-5 with four singles and a strikeout in Wednesday's 2-1 extra-inning loss to Cleveland. Contreras did his part to keep the line moving Wednesday. He's rebounded after a tough stretch to start May -- the catcher has gone 7-for-14 with a pair of RBI and a run scored in his last four games. For the season, he's posted a .248/.349/.459 slash line with seven home runs, 18 RBI, 18 runs scored and two stolen bases in 129 plate appearances.
Contreras will be on the bench for the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers. Contreras went 0-for-3 with a walk in the afternoon game. It's no surprise that he won't be asked to catch two games in one day. Tony Wolters will take over behind the plate in his absence.
Contreras (thigh) will return to the lineup for Monday's game against the Dodgers, catching and batting fifth. Contreras sat for two straight games with a minor thigh issue, though he did appear off the bench Sunday. He'll be involved from the start this time around and will look to build on his .238/.333/.512 slash line.
Contreras (thigh) is not in the lineup Sunday against the Reds. The 28-year-old will be sidelined for the second consecutive contest after exiting Friday's game with mild tightness in his right thigh. According to Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune, manager David Ross said Contreras believes his thigh is fine, but he'll go through a pregame workout Sunday in any case as he attempts to prove his health heading into the upcoming week. Tony Wolters receives another start behind the plate for Chicago while Contreras is day-to-day with the injury.
Contreras (thigh) isn't starting Saturday's game against the Reds. Contreras exited Friday's series opener against Cincinnati due to mild right thigh tightness, and he'll be out of the lineup Saturday as a result. Tony Wolters will start behind the dish and bat eighth. Per Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network, Contreras believes he could play Saturday if necessary, so it doesn't sound as though he'll miss too much more time.
