Kris Bryant (Shoulder) to Take Batting Practice

Chicago Cubs News

Ultimately it’ll depend mostly on how he feels after, but I still think this tends to be a good sign in Kris Bryant’s recovery from his shoulder ailment:

Given that it’s the swing that is giving Bryant issues right now, getting him back out there to test it in BP suggests he’s feeling close to being able to return. That said, it may not fully go away this year:

And if that’s the case, it does make you wonder about the stark dip in power Bryant saw that coincided with his shoulder injury, and what impact it will have for the rest of the year if the discomfort doesn’t fully recede until the offseason.

We’ll see how Bryant feels after this latest test, and then – whenever he returns – how he and the Cubs are best able to manage the shoulder for the rest of the year with a long, long view on the future.
