Willson Contreras Chicago Cubs Career

On June 17, 2016, he was called up to the Cubs’ major league squad and began playing catcher.

His first major-league home run came after two pitchers attempted to pick him off at the first base, becoming the 30th player in modern MLB history to accomplish so.

Beginning at first base in his fifth outing, he later moved to left field to begin his eighth game, demonstrating his ability to play many positions on the field.

In 295 at-bats, Contreras collected 80 hits, including 12 home runs, 35 RBIs, and a batting average of .275.

A pinch-hit two-run single in the top of the ninth inning by Contreras in Game 4 of the 2016 National League Division Series against the San Francisco Giants gave the Cubs a 2-1 lead.

Jason Heyward’s bunt moved Contreras to second base, but the Cubs scored the winning run later in the inning to advance to the NLCS.

The Cubs won the 2016 World Series, their first championship in 108 years, beating the Cleveland Indians. Contreras brought in a run in the seventh game with a double.

Contrary to popular belief, Contreras was the Cubs’ opening-day starting catcher on April 2, 2017.

On August 8th, he was named the National League’s Player of the Week after hitting five home runs in six games.

In a game against the San Francisco Giants on August 9, Contreras had a mild hamstring strain while racing to first base.
