Cubs' Willson Contreras: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contreras went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Reds.

Contreras popped his 17th home run of the season in the fifth inning against Cincinnati starter Luis Castillo with a runner on. The Chicago catcher should remain a key part of the team's lineup, unless he's moved before Friday's deadline, as the Cubs already traded Anthony Rizzo Thursday and could continue to move on from some of their core players.

Cubs' Willson Contreras: Smacks 15th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contreras went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

Contreras delivered a leadoff home run in the fourth inning, his 15th long ball of the campaign. He was also ejected from the game arguing a call against Jason Heyward, though it was in the bottom of the ninth inning, so it did not cost him any plate appearances. Contreras has been on a modest power surge of late, delivering two home runs and two doubles across his last six starts. For the season, he is hitting.239/.350/.433 across 346 plate appearances.

Cubs' Willson Contreras: Smacks go-ahead homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contreras went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored in Saturday's 4-2 win over Arizona.

Contreras scored the Cubs' first run of the game when he scored on a sixth-inning double by Javier Baez.

The catcher has hit safely in eight of his 10 games in July, going 11-for-36 (.306) in that span. He's slashing .241/.350/.431 with 14 homers, 33 RBI, 38 runs scored and three stolen bases through 322 plate appearances overall. His homer Saturday was his first since June 24.

Cubs' Willson Contreras: Stays in game after HBP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contreras took a fastball off his left hand in Friday's game against the Dodgers but was able to finish out the contest and seems to have avoided a serious injury, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Contreras was struck by a 98-mph pitch from Los Angeles reliever Joe Kelly in the sixth inning but was not lifted for a pinch runner. The Chicago catcher had one more at-bat, striking out in the eighth inning. Manager David Ross said it was a "good sign" that Contreras "got through the game and was still able to compete at a high level," but the team will know more after checking him out on Saturday. It's possible that Contreras gets a day off to let his bruise heal, but at this point it does not appear he is facing an extended absence.

Cubs' Willson Contreras: Blasts another homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contreras went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 4-0 victory over the Dodgers on Thursday.

Contreras provided some insurance with his sixth-inning home run to left off Walker Buehler, though Chicago wouldn't need it as the staff threw a combined no-hitter. It was his second straight game with a home run as Contreras has put together a nice three-game stretch, going 5-for-11 with two doubles and two long balls.

Cubs' Willson Contreras: Hits 12th home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contreras went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's win over Cleveland.

Contreras gave the Cubs a 5-0 lead with an RBI single in the sixth inning, then hit his 12th home run of the season in the eighth to make it 6-1. The catcher is having another solid campaign with a .766 OPS and the dozen long balls, which is good for third on the team, though his .237 batting average would be a new career low.

Cubs' Willson Contreras: Blasts 11th home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contreras went 1-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's win over the Cardinals.

Contreras hit his 11th home run of the season in the eighth inning, giving the Cubs their final run of the day in the 8-5 victory. The catcher is third on the team in long balls, trailing Javier Baez (14 home runs) and Kris Bryant (13). Contreras is one of the best-hitting backstops in the game and should remain a strong fantasy asset.

Cubs' Willson Contreras: Doubles, homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contreras went 2-for-4 with a double and a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

Contreras led off in this one and provided a much-needed offensive boost in the 4-3 win. The veteran catcher now has nine home runs and 24 RBI through 49 games, and he should continue to be a reliable fantasy backstop the rest of the way.
