Cubs News: Willson Contreras on lack of contract extension talks


by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras was back at Spring Training on Sunday to get ready for the 2022 regular season.

Contreras spoke to the media for a few moments and shared that there have been no extension talks with the Northsiders.

"No, there haven't been any talks," Contreras said. "I'm good with it. They know what they're doing. They know what's best for the team. I'm here because I love my team. Whatever is going to happen is going to happen."

Contreras said he is open to talking with the Cubs but just wants to have a good season.

"I'm always open," he said. "You know me. I'm not focused on that. I'm focused on having a good year, having fun with my team, and trying to win."

Contreras said that he knows there is a chance that he could be traded during the season because he is eligible to be a free agent after the season.

"Those things were in my head before I got here," he said. "Obviously, it happened last year; it can happen this year. Whatever happens in the middle of the year is going to happen. Life goes on."

He hit .237 with 21 homers and 57 RBIs last season.
