According to multiple sources, the Cubs are set to call up their top prospect Willson Contreras tomorrow. Yes, the catching prospect has easily become their top prospect and is probably among the top 10 in baseball at this point. Catchers who can hit and field are rare and that’s what Contreras is. The Cubs will designate Tim Federowicz for assignment to make room. I’m hoping that Contreras gets regular playing time, but I’m guessing it’s pretty sporadic at the start.
Contreras will be #Cubs 3rd catcher. The move is to help him adjust to big league environment, work with Ross, Montero
