​When ​Willson Contreras injured his hamstring running to first base against the Giants last week, the ​initial reaction was one of panic for the Cubs.

Contreras has been one of their more reliable hitters all season, and even with the acquisition of Alex Avila, losing their star catcher for a sustained period of time did not bode well for Chicago's chances at a repeat. 

Willson reported for his MRI on Thursday, and thanked fans for their support, while at the same time reassuring them of his status.

A DL stint does appear likely for the Cubs' catcher, who's hitting a solid .274 with 21 home runs so far on the year. But despite initial fears that his ailment might keep him out into the postseason, Contreras will likely be back sometime in September.

This is a best-case scenario for Chicago and Contreras. As the Cubs fight for a spot in the postseason, they'll feature the veteran Avila until their slugger can return.

Contreras should be back just in time for the final stretch of the regular season. Not so bad.
