  • Cubs' Willson Contreras: Not in Wednesday's lineup

  • Cubs' Willson Contreras: Hits 15th home run

    Contreras went 2-for-8 with a walk, a double, a solo home run and two runs scored across both games of Thursday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

    Contreras did his damage early in the matinee, taking St. Louis starter Miles Mikolas deep in the first inning. The catcher, who perhaps surprisingly didn't leave Chicago before the trade deadline, now has 15 home runs and an .835 OPS this season. He should be primed for a strong finish to the year in a familiar environment, though the 41-63 Cubs may opt to mix in some rest days.

  • Cubs' Willson Contreras: Breather Sunday

    Contreras is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Phillies.

  • Cubs' Willson Contreras: Homers in rout

    Contreras went 2-for-3 with two walks, a double, a solo home run and two runs scored in Friday's 15-2 win over the Phillies.

    Contreras had two of the Cubs' 19 hits in the easy win. The catcher now has 14 home runs, which is second on the team to Patrick Wisdom, to go along with a solid .843 OPS. With Chicago sitting at just 36-57, the veteran Contreras remains a likely trade candidate before the upcoming deadline. The Cubs moved all of Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant and Javier Baez before the deadline last year, leaving Contreras, Jason Heyward and Kyle Hendricks as the lone remaining players from the 2016 championship squad.

  • Cubs' Willson Contreras: Resting for nightcap

    Contreras will be on the bench for the second half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets.

    Contreras went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts in the first game of the day. He may not have many games left in a Cubs uniform, as he's on an expiring contract and could be traded to a playoff contender.

  • Cubs' Willson Contreras: Comes up empty Saturday

    Contreras (hamstring) went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Dodgers.

    Contreras missed four games with a tight left hamstring, and it appears his timing was a bit off in his return. The 30-year-old could continue to see some time as the designated hitter as he works back to full strength. He hit .333 with a home run, four doubles, seven RBI and six runs scored in 10 games prior to his injury, so it shouldn't take the catcher long to regain his momentum at the plate.
