Cubs catcher Willson Contreras will start when his team hosts the Mets on Tuesday night at Wrigley Field, manager Joe Maddon said in his weekly radio hit on 670 The Score.
“Can’t go nine, he’s not stretched out to nine,” Maddon said. “But we’ll try to figure it out. He’s going to hit four, like he had in the past. That’s the other thing about it, when you look at the lineup and we were going really good there for a while, Willson was in that four hole.”
“I have no idea what it’s going to look like tonight, but we still got to break him back in slowly,” Maddon said.
“The expectation component of it, just let him go play. Just go play Willson, work your regular at-bats.”
Kyle Schwarber will also start Tuesday, Maddon added.
