The Cubs have had a pretty eventful weekend in Wrigley. Willson Contreras has been suspended for two games following Friday’s issues against the Cardinals. He’ll remain active while his appeal on the matter is pending.

The Cubs have also activated Addison Russell from the disabled list, who homered in his pinch hit return to the field. Talk about proving that you’re feeling better.
