MLB already has a catcher that doesn’t appear to be too thrilled with the league’s new rule limiting visits to the mound. Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras told ESPNthat if necessary, he’ll take whatever the necessary punishment is if he needs to make any mound visits past the sixth one.
“I don’t even care,” Contreras said Tuesday afternoon. “If I have to go [out there] again and pay the price for my team I will.”
Contreras went on to discuss the importance of potentially needing to meet with his pitcher in the late innings of a close game.
