#Cubs Minor League report: Contreras honored

Tennessee catcher Willson Contreras was named Southern League Player of the Week for July 26-Aug. 2. In six games during that span, Contreras batted .478, scored seven runs, and hit three doubles, one homer and drove in six runs. He led the league in runs, on-base percentage (.556) and on-base plus slugging percentage (1.295) during the week, and was tied for first in average and hits.

Sunday’s games

Dallas Beeler gave up four runs over 5 2/3 innings in Iowa’s 9-7 win over Colorado Springs. Adron Chambers had two hits and two RBI, and John Andreoli had two hits, including a double and a triple, and scored three times. Mike Olt had two hits and one RBI. Beeler helped himself, driving in two runs.

Andres Santiago threw six shutout innings in Tennessee’s 5-2 win over Birmingham. Willson Contreras had two hits. Miguel
Montero went 1-for-3 in a rehab start and Tommy La Stella was 1-for-4 with a double. Ryan Dent was 3-for-3.

Myrtle Beach lost, 2-0, to Frederick. Daniel Lockhart had two hits. Tyler Ighrig posted a quality start, throwing six
shutout innings.

Zach Hedges gave up two runs over seven innings in South Bend’s 7-2 wi over Dayton. David Bote hit a grand slam with two outs in the eighth for the win. Ian Happ had two hits and drove in two runs.

Eugene lost, 4-1, to Spokane. Blake Headley and Andrew Ely each had two hits.

Austyn Willis gave up one run over five innings in Mesa’s 7-3 win over the Giants. P.J. Higgins had three hits and two RBI.


Conteras is becoming a very solid prospect… it’ll be exciting to see if he can continue this into AAA at some point. If so we may be set at the catching position in the future with Schwarber and Conteras handling it.
