Good news on the injury front for the unofficial captain of the Chicago Cubs.
Catcher Willson Contreras' MRI didn't have any surprises, and the results were consistent with the left ankle sprain diagnosis.
Contreras is still out of the lineup for this afternoon's matchup with the Cincinnati Reds.
“We’ll continue the same path it's been on,” manager David Ross said during pregame. “[With what] the setbacks were, we want to make sure we're not doing anything that is going to cause any further harm and make sure there's no real problem in there.
“All good news,” Ross continued. “He was excited. We were excited. Making sure he's healthy and just getting all the way back where the ankle feels strong enough that he can go out and compete without thinking about it.”
In 2022, Contreras is batting .246 with 21 homers and 54 RBIs.
