This could mean the team in Queens, New York may be out on the Contreras sweepstakes that have kept the entire Chicago sports community at a halt until they hear news about if Contreras is still a Cub or not.
According to Bleacher Report teams that are still interested are the San Fransico Giants, San Diego Padres, Tampa Bay Rays, Houston Astros, and Cleveland Guardians. A prime destination for Contreras is the Houston Astros due to their lack of behind-the-plate presence being the worst in the MLB.
