Cubs skipper Joe Maddon announced on Monday that rookie catcher Willson Contreras will start at catcher on Tuesday for Game 6 of the 2016 World Series.
"It's normally been Contreras with Kyle, also, but tomorrow you're going to see Willson," Maddon said in a Monday evening conference call.
Contreras batted .282 with 12 homers, 35 RBIs and an on-base percentage of .367 during the regular season. During the postseason, he is batting .265 with nine hits, one double, one homer, and four RBIs.
