Kris Bryant Getting MRI on Left Big Toe

Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects

kris bryant iowa cubs featureKris Bryant left the Iowa Cubs’ game last night after three innings, which caused a bit of a freakout around the web, as Bryant we seen leaving with the Iowa trainer.


Earlier this week, Bryant fouled a ball off of his left big toe, but continued playing (Tommy Birch). Last night, however, he was feeling it, so he departed for an x-ray. The results were inconclusive, so he’ll now head for an MRI. If there’s a fracture, even a minor one, it’s a pretty safe bet that Bryant’s season is over, which would put a considerable dent in the Iowa Cubs’ playoff hopes. You’d like to believe that a broken big toe wouldn’t impact Bryant’s ability to do offseason work after a rest period, and wouldn’t impact his Spring.

We’ll see what the MRI reveals, and hopefully the x-ray being inconclusive was not an indicator of trouble. Bryant was able to play (well) with the injury, which doesn’t necessarily mean anything, because he might simply be a beast. Fingers crossed for a good outcome here.
