Cubs roster moves: Willson Contreras activated, Seiya Suzuki returns from restricted list

Photo by Mary DeCicco/MLB Photos via The Cubs catcher is back. Will this be his last hurrah as a Cub? Willson Contreras injured his ankle in the Field of Dreams Game. You remember, right? [VIDEO] That looked possibly season-ending, but he stayed in the game. He tried to play through it for the rest of August, and actually hit reasonably well — just 9-for-43 (.209), but five home runs giving him a .581 slugging percentage in 12 further August games. Finally it got too much and the Cubs placed him on the injured list September 6, though his most recent game played...

Three up, three down: An update on the Cubs, September 26 edition

Photo by Justin Berl/ The ballclub had a very good road trip with some fine performances. The Cubs had a 5-2 road trip to Miami and Pittsburgh over the last week, one of their most successful away from Wrigley Field this year. And they did all that with Nico Hoerner and Willson Contreras injured and Seiya Suzuki still in Japan awaiting the birth of his first child. The makeshift Cubs lineups, which didn’t even look good enough for “insert other split squad joke here,” produced. Granted, the opposition was fairly weak. Still, you have to produce to win and these...

Cubs: Free agent catchers pale in comparison to Willson Contreras

Since the team’s World Series run back in 2016, the Chicago Cubs have enjoyed having one of the more valuable backstops in the game handling duties behind the plate in Willson Contreras. The 30-year-old catcher earned the third All-Star selection of his career here in 2022, setting himself up for what figures to be a […] Cubs: Free agent catchers pale in comparison to Willson Contreras - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Cubs roster move: Willson Contreras to injured list, Michael Hermosillo activated

Photo by Mary DeCicco/MLB Photos via The Cubs catcher will rest his injured ankle.

When, back in July, I penned a piece thinking through a scenario where the Cardinals traded for Cubs All-Star catcher Willson Contreras ahead of the deadline, looking to shore things up behind the dish with Yadier Molina injured, I hadn’t seriously thought about that very same setup taking place at season’s end. But according to […] Cubs Rumors: Cardinals will ‘absolutely’ be in on Willson Contreras - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community
