Kris Bryant Wants Players to “Put Pride and Egos Aside” When It Comes to Self-Reporting Symptoms

Chicago Cubs

Kris Bryant is back and sitting atop the Cubs lineup tonight after missing a couple games in the COVID-19 protocol. He was out because he self-reported intestinal symptoms, which is precisely what players need to do if this season is going to survive.

Since Bryant is the one who took the step, I thought it worth sharing his thoughts on the matter before tonight’s game:

Spot on. We shouldn’t say this kind of approach would’ve changed things with the Marlins or Cardinals – we can’t know – but it could wind up making a huge difference with some team down the road. Maybe they get a positive test, but because that player had started self-isolation beforehand, it doesn’t shut the whole team down.
