Chicago Cubs Activate 2 Players From IL

Although the Chicago Cubs are out of the playoff race, Seiya Suzuki and Willson Contreras are back for them, as they each have been activated from the IL.

Suzuki has missed the last two weeks, but now the 27-year-old is finishing the year healthy Overall, it was a fairly solid first season for him in the majors, as he had 13 home runs, 45 RBIs, and a .263 batting average. As he continues to get used to the sport's most competitive league, it would not be surprising to see those numbers increase in 2023.

Contreras, on the other hand, is a pending UFA who wants to end the year on a high note to help increase his value. The All-Star catcher has 21 home runs, 54 RBIs, and a .246 batting average in 108 games this season.
