Hey, here’s some great news after a terrible (terrible (terrible)) Cubs loss: Willson Contreras is working his way back.
Per multiple reports, Contreras will indeed head to the Carolina League playoffs to join the Cubs’ High-A affiliate, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. He’ll play with them Thursday and Friday (good luck, Down East Wood Ducks), and then we’ll see what’s what with his hamstring.
It has now become plausible that Contreras could return to the Cubs for this weekend’s big series against the Brewers. Given how the bats have performed the last two days, it would be a welcomed sight to have Contreras’s hopefully-still-hot bat back in the lineup.
