The Cubs’ Willson Contreras will get the call behind the plate today, as veteran catcher David Ross is sitting out for Game 2 of the NLDS. Rumors of Ross’ impending retirement kicked up a little dust today when the backstop announced that he was “99% sure” of the decision to hang up his cleats, per Jesse Rogers of ESPNChicago.com. The only thing holding him back? An offer from the Cubs, though Ross indicated that it’d have to be an irresistible one for him to consider extending his 15-season career.
Lineups are below; first pitch is scheduled for 8:00 PM EDT.
