 Wilson Contreras went 3-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's 16-3 Cactus League win over the Giants.

C Mitch Garver plans on starting 40-45 contests at catcher during the MLB's shortened 60-game season.
Brad Camara
Mon, Jul 6th
 Willson Contreras heard his name mentioned in trade rumors in the offseason but nothing materialized so he is back as the starting catcher for the Cubs. He is a weapon against the running game with his strong, accurate arm along with his ability to catch runners who are not paying attention by snapping a throw off behind them.

Notes 
 Contreras had a nice bounce back season last year after a disappointing 2018. He, too, could catch 95 percent of the Cubs games this year, which would make him a lock for a top three catcher.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
There's nothing about Garver's 2019 that is really unsustainable, but it's such a small sample and a late-career breakout that it's hard to buy in fully.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Contreras is no doubt one of the best hitting catchers in baseball, with a .270+ average in three of four seasons, but his upside is capped by the fact that Chicago also has Caratini and is certain to get him 200+ PAs. Even so, Contreras should have no trouble reaching 20 HRs, 50 R and 60 RBIs once again.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Garver may be the most difficult catcher to peg this season because his breakout was so extreme and such a surprise. He hit 31 homers in just 311 at-bats. Surely that rate will regress but he should also get more trips to the plate too so 35 HRs, .260 BA is not out of the question by any means.
