Cubs to be without Contreras for a time
Friday Aug 11, 2017 12:00am

(SAN FRANCISCO) - It's the proverbial gut check time for the Chicago Cubs as they'll likely be without their emerging star catcher for a while. Willson Contreras will have an MRI on his right hamstring, but no one who saw him come up lame running to first base on Wednesday afternoon believes it's a one- or two-day thing. It's not hard to understand how big of a loss this could be for the Cubs, who find themselves in a four-team race for the division title. Contreras has been Chicago's MVP of late. But Manager Joe Maddon says now it's time to have people step up and take on more responsibility while Maddon and shortstop Addison Russell are both out with injuries. For Contreras, that means Alex Avila getting a share of time behind the plate until further notice.
