Reports: Cubs sign catcher Gomes, outfielder Frazier
Among core position players from the Cubs' 2016 World Series champion team, Willson Contreras is the only one still on the roster.
Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez were traded last July and Kyle Schwarber was non-tendered before the season started.
After the Cubs reportedly signed veteran catcher Yan Gomes to a two-year, $13 million contract Tuesday, SportsGrid's Craig Mish first reported the deal, Contreras obviously felt he's also headed to a new team.
On Twitter, Contreras posted a set of emojis depicting an airplane taking off and landing.
If Contreras is traded, Gomes is the Cubs' No. 1 catcher. If Contreras stays put, Gomes is going to be an expensive backup.
Contreras is eligible for free agency after the 2022 season.
There was another reported Cubs signing later Tuesday -- Clint Frazier to a one-year contract. The Yankees released the 27-year-old outfielder last week.
The No. 5 overall pick in the 2013 draft and a top minor league prospect in Cleveland's organization before being traded to New York for Andrew Miller in 2016, Frazier had trouble staying healthy over his five years with the Yankees.
Last season, the right-handed hitter missed the final three months and playoffs while dealing with dizziness and vision problems. In 66 games, Frazier hit .186/.317/.317 with 5 home runs and 15 games.
In 228 career games with New York Frazier slashed .239/.327/.434 with 29 homers and 97 RBI.
The 34-year-old Gomes split last season between the National and Athletics and hit .252/.301./.421 with 14 home runs and 52 RBI in 103 games.
Gomes has also played for Toronto and Cleveland over his 10-year career. He was an all-star in 2018 with the Guardians while batting .266 with 16 homers and 48 RBI.
