Authentic Mens Roger Clemens Jersey Major League Baseball has plans to move 13 regular season series to foreign countries from 2018-21, according to its collective bargaining agreement (via the LA Times).
MLB has long benefited from the talents of foreign-born players, though this move is to increase brand awareness and popularity of the sport on an international scale.
Contreras, the Cubs primary catcher who was playing first base on Wednesday, was favoring his right hamstring and had to be helped off the field by two people after the play.
The Cubs have yet to announce a prognosis, but if it is a hamstring injury then it’s not something that normally takes a day or two to get over. The Cubs had to shuffle their defense for the ninth inning. Anthony Rizzo, who pinch-hit for center fielder Albert Almora in the eighth, stayed in the game at first. Ben Zobrist moved from right field to second while Ian Happ went from second to center and Jason Heyward entered the game in right field.
Miguel Montero was designated for assignment by the Cubs on June 28 and Contreras has been one of the Cubs more important players since, both at the plate and behind it.
The Cubs have gone 20-15 since Montero’s departure and Contreras is hitting .274 with 21 home runs on the year.

I do enjoy going up there knowing I’m going to get more at-bats (as the leadoff hitter), he said. Also, I know I’m going to get quality pitches because (the pitcher) doesn’t want me to get a free pass, knowing the guys behind me can hit.
Souza was the most forthcoming of the players SN spoke with about ambushing the occasional fastball they feel is coming their way.
Sometimes when I know I’m going to get a heater, I can go for it, he said. I try to see it right down the middle and let it eat. There aren’t many times in this game when you’re guaranteed a fastball.
