ST. LOUIS, MO: Cardinals catcher Willson Contreras is heading to the IL after exiting last night’s game against the Mets when J.D. Martinez swung and connected with Contreras’ forearm.

After exiting the game, Contreras was confirmed to have sustained a left arm fracture, per Robert Murray of FanSided.

For the Cardinals, this comes at a huge loss. With a season unfolding in which they can’t seem to catch a break, they now lose one of their top producers for the foreseeable future.

The Cardinals currently stand in last place of the NL Central. With a season already full of uncertainty and underwhelming play, the Cardinals are likely to run out of contention.

Contreras, 31, is slashing .274/.394/.538 with 6 home runs on the year and is keeping up with his duties behind the plate. Willson Contreras signed a 5 year, $87.5 million contract with the St. Louis Cardinals at the end of the 2022 season. The Cardinals catcher’s return currently has no timetable.
