CINCINNATI (AP) — Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant is day to day with a sore left shoulder.
Bryant was out of Chicago’s starting lineup for Sunday’s series finale against the Reds, the second straight start he missed, but didn’t expect to be out much longer.
“It’ll be no longer than a day or two,” said Bryant, who is hitting .280 with nine home runs and 36 RBIs in 66 games.
Bryant wasn’t the only missing Cub. Right-hander Tyler Chatwood, the scheduled starter, left the club Sunday morning when his wife went into labor. Left-hander Mike Montgomery was starting in his place.
