The last thing the Chicago Cubs need is an injury to slugger Kris Bryant.
Bryant’s resurgence has been a pleasant story for the Cubs so far this season, as talks around the team have gone from when they might deal KB to if they should consider signing him long-term over some of their other stars. Bryant is in the early-season running for National League MVP, and should the Cubs defy expectations at season’s end, he could very well still be among the final candidates.
So far this season, Bryant is hitting .308 with nine home runs and 22 RBIs. That’s more than enough to place him among the league leaders.
Cubs: Kris Bryant leaves game with injury
The last 10 days have been rough on the Cubs injury-wise, with the likes of Javier Baez, Jake Arrieta, Ian Happ and Nico Hoerner all suffering injuries. While Chicago was among the hottest teams in baseball, they dropped the final game of their series against the Pirates.
Bryant was removed from Tuesday’s game for unforeseen reasons. As of now, there is no official update from the team outside of the fact that Bryant was removed because of an apparent illness.
