Willson Contreras will make his return to catching for the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday against the Milwaukee Brewers, manager Oli Marmol told reporters Saturday, including MLB.com's John Denton. Contreras has not appeared behind the plate since May 5, with the Cardinals having announced last Saturday that he would not catch in the near term. Instead, each of his six starts since have come as the Cardinals' designated hitter.

Contreras will be paired up with Jack Flaherty as the Cardinals' starting battery on Monday. Flaherty and rotation fixture Adam Wainwright had met with Contreras to discuss what the catcher needed to do in order to help out the pitching staff.
