Kris Bryant Scratched Because of Wrist and Finger Soreness (UPDATE)

Chicago Cubs

Dang. After Kris Bryant homered following that diving play last night, I hoped that his wincing was just a momentary issue.

I guess he’s still feeling it:

This was the play:

Given that tonight’s starter, Brett Anderson, has huge splits in recent years (he dominates lefties and gives it up against righties), Bryant likely really wanted to go in this one. So, yeah, that’s how you know he got to the park today and it just wasn’t feeling right.

Hopefully a day off will clear things up, but wrist issues are always scary for hitters. He may need some time. I anticipate we’ll get an update soon.

In the meantime, the updated Cubs lineup is here. Kyle Schwarber takes over in left. So at least he is feeling OK after the HBP in the knee.

UPDATE: Good to take a day at least, and hopefully this is right on:
