Cubs C Contreras (hamstring) to undergo MRI

Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras suffered a right hamstring strain in the seventh inning of Saturday's game and will undergo an MRI exam on Monday, manager Joe Maddon said.

Contreras, an All-Star starter in each of the past two seasons, grabbed the back of his right leg soon after running out of the box on a fly out to center. He was clearly upset as he met with a trainer and then headed to the dugout.

Victor Caratini took over behind the plate for the Cubs, who won 4-1.

The 27-year-old Contreras is hitting .275 with 19 home runs and 57 RBIs in 87 games.

His injury comes three days after the Cubs, who had been carrying three catchers on the roster, traded veteran Martin Maldonado to the Houston Astros in exchange for utility man Tony Kemp.
