Chicago Cubs back-up, back-up catcher P.J. Higgins, now returned from Tommy John surgery, was quietly doing his thing at Iowa when he was tasked with coming up today to give the Cubs a little more depth after Willson Contreras’s hamstring injury.
Higgins, 29, has had some very brief chances in the big leagues before, but hasn’t really done much with them. So what does Higgins do in his first at bat back in the big leagues today? Bases-clearing triple:

Now that’s how you come back to the big leagues. Higgins, by the way, was hitting a cool .417/.500/.569 at Iowa in the early going, and there is still hope that he can emerge as a useful back-up/third catcher in the big leagues.
