Willson Contreras sitting Wednesday for Cubs
Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Brandon Woodruff and the Milwaukee Brewers.
The Cubs appear to be giving Contreras his first breather of the season. Tony Wolters will catch Kyle Hendricks and bat eighth while Eric Sogard will enter the lineup and replace Contreras in the two-hole.
numberFire’s models project Sogard for 9.1 FanDuel points versus the Brewers and he has a salary of $2,200 on Wednesday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Cubs have an implied total of 4.5 runs.
