Kris Bryant gave us a mighty scare on a beautiful sliding play in the outfield (overturned on review), where his wrist bent awkwardly.
He was seen wincing a good bit after this play:

Frankly, it seemed like Bryant might be leaving the game in time. Still, he went to the plate for his next at bat. I was sure he was gonna be up there grimacing with awkward swings.
Welp, guess he’s OK:

That’s 108.8 mph, 430 feet, and completely barreled. That might be the best Bryant has hit the ball all year. Maybe the wrist thing was like a ‘Rookie of the Year’ situation …
