Ugh: Kris Bryant Scratched with a Sore Right Knee (UPDATE: Happ Covering Third Base)

Chicago Cubs

Cool. Cool. Cool-cool-cool-cool-cool-cool-cool.

Cool:

According to Jordan Bastian, the Chicago Cubs have scratched Kris Bryant from the starting lineup tonight in the finale against the Mariners, which really stinks. Just as the Cubs got Ben Zobrist and Willson Contreras back, they’ll play this one without Javy Baez (thumb) and Kris Bryant (knee).
