ATLANTA (AP) — Kris Bryant suffered a sprained left little finger that forced him to leave the Chicago Cubs’ game against the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday.
The Cubs say X-rays on Bryant were negative. His status is day to day and he will be monitored.
Bryant doubled to center field off R.A. Dickey in the first inning. With two outs, Bryant tried to advance to third base on a pitch in the dirt. He slid head-first into third base but was thrown out by catcher Tyler Flowers.
Bryant remained face-down on the field for a few seconds before rising to his feet. He immediately looked at his left hand.
