Willson Contreras is having himself an excellent first month of the 2019 season.

In the seventh inning of Monday night's game against the Marlins, Contreras connected with a solo shot that traveled an estimated 420 feet and 105 MPH exit velocity to put the Cubs up 6-2.

It was his sixth homer of the season and that is the most in the team's first 15 games since Derrek Lee (6) in 2008 according to NBC Sports Chicago. Last season, Contreras hit his sixth homer of the season on June 27.
