With the scoop by @barstoolcarl, we see that Contreras’ injury isn’t as bad as we first thought. Most thought it looked REALLY bad, like surgery bad. Now we get a scoop that the MRI is negative and no surgery is needed which is huge news. The Cubs have a weak schedule throughout Willy’s DL tour. Willy wants to “take his time…to be 100%.” Cubs officially announced Willson is heading to the 10-day DL, and Victor Caratini will be called back up from Iowa. Let’s hope Willy has a speedy recovery.
Willson Contreras out 4-6 weeks (Hamstring), MRI negative and no surgery needed.
