Cubs are possibly looking to trade Willson Contreras for assets that will help bring them back to where they were in 2016. By trading away Ian Happ and Willson Contreras this could be the start of something big in the Wrigley Field clubhouse. Contreras news has been nothing but plentiful as recently it was also reported that the catcher has not had a meaningful conversation with the club about a contract extension since 2017.
Willson Contreras is obviously trying to gain some leverage here as most players when they are frustrated with the organization will delete posts related to the team, to get some pull in the trade, and make sure they go exactly where they want to go when it is all said and done.

As reported by Mark Powell, “Most recently, Contreras has been linked with the San Francisco Giants, who are in desperate need of a catcher.” Could this be where the catcher ends up? We will have to wait and see in the next few upcoming days.
