Cubs Trade Rumors: Willson Contreras Believed to Be Available by Multiple Teams

ESPN's Jeff Passan reported Friday that "multiple teams" believe Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras will be on the trading block this offseason.

"Multiple teams in search of catching help believe Cubs catcher Willson Contreras will be available this winter," Passan wrote. "The Cubs will get creative this winter, and with a deep catching free agent market, they could trade Contreras and begin retooling under new manager David Ross."

Contreras, 27, had 24 home runs, 64 RBI and a .272 batting average in 105 games last season. His .888 OPS was a career-high.
