Willson Contreras returns to Cubs starting lineup

Associated Press

Willson Contreras is back in the Cubs starting lineup for Saturday’s doubleheader against the Cardinals.

Contreras sat out Friday’s game against St. Louis with a left ankle injury he sustained after being hit by pitch Thursday.

The 30-year-old catcher has been off to a hot start in 2022, slashing .278/.401/.530 with 32 runs, nine home runs, and 21 RBI across 182 plate appearances.

With a doubleheader on the schedule, Contreras should be starting in fantasy lineups throughout multiple leagues today.

The Cubs also promoted pitcher Caleb Kilian from Tiple-A Iowa to make his big league debut in today’s second game against St. Louis.
