Kris Bryant passed initial concussion tests after having to leave Sunday's game against the Rockies when he was hit in the head by a pitch.

Bryant isn't out of the woods yet, but this is certainly very good news. He was hit by a German Marquez offering Sunday but it looks like he might have escaped with just a laceration above his eye. The Cubs will continue to monitor their star third baseman.

Kris Bryant left Sunday's game versus the Rockies after being hit in the head by a German Marquez pitch.

The pitch appeared to hit Bryant on the side of the helmet and then deflect and hit his sunglasses, knocking them off his face. The Cubs slugger looked woozy after the beaning and needed help as he was assisted to the clubhouse. Obviously, he's going to need to go through concussion tests. The Cubs should have an update on Bryant's status later Sunday.
Apr 22 - 3:19 PM

Kris Bryant went 3-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's thumping of the Pirates.

He twice drove in runs with doubles in the ballgame and is sporting a monster .348/.464/.630 slash line with two homers and eight RBI through 56 plate appearances. The perennial MVP candidate is very likely to justify his first-round fantasy draft status again this year and for years to come.

Kris Bryant went 3-for-3 with a homer, a triple and two walks as the Cubs beat the Brewers 5-2 on Saturday.

The Cubs scored four times in the ninth to win the game. Bryant didn't have much of a part in that -- he was intentionally walked in the frame -- but he was the team's offense the first eight innings. Bryant has two homers and six RBI through eight games.
Apr 7 - 7:48 PM

Kris Bryant went 2-for-5 with a bases-clearing double in Saturday's 10-6, 10-inning win over the Marlins.

Bryant had just a single to his fair name through the first nine innings of the game, but came through in a huge way once the game headed into extras. In the top of the 10th, the Cubs took a 7-6 lead on an RBI single by Ben Zobrist. With two outs and the bases loaded, Bryant then proceeded to double them clear, for all intents and purposes ending the game in the process. The All-Star third baseman has picked up six hits in his first 15 at-bats on the young campaign. While he posted a relatively down season a year ago, he should very much be considered a true player for the NL MVP in 2018.
Mar 31 - 11:45 PM

Kris Bryant clubbed his first home run of the season on Friday as the Cubs dropped a heart-breaker to the Marlins in 17 innings.

Bryant's solo shot off of Caleb Smith opened the game's scoring in the third inning and that would wind up being the extent of the Cubs' offense. Bryant finished the night 3-for-6 with a homer and a double. He also drew a walk in the ballgame.
Mar 31 - 12:45 AM

Kris Bryant was in midseason form Wednesday in the Cubs’ Cactus League win over the Rangers, reaching in three of his four plate appearances while collecting his first home run of the spring.

Bryant staked Chicago to a 4-0 lead in the second by drilling a three-run shot off Texas lefty Matt Moore. He also contributed a single and a walk before giving way to Tommy La Stella at third base. The former MVP hasn’t missed a beat this spring, batting a robust .367 over 30 Cactus League at-bats.
Mar 21 - 7:19 PM

Kris Bryant (illness) is back in the Cubs' Cactus League lineup Friday.

Bryant has been limited to two Cactus League plate appearances to this point because of the flu, but he's feeling well enough to give it a go Friday. The former National League MVP is at his customary third base spot and batting second against the Angels.
Mar 2 - 11:15 AM

Kris Bryant remained out of the Cubs' Cactus League lineup on Wednesday.

Bryant has been sidelined all week with the flu. He should be good to return to action over the weekend.
Feb 28 - 11:37 AM

Kris Bryant is out of Monday's Cactus League lineup due to illness.

Bryant should be good to go in the next day or two.
Feb 26 - 11:05 AM

Cubs and 3B Kris Bryant avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $10.85 million contract.

It's a record for a player that was eligible for salary arbitration for the first time. Bryant, of course, has earned every penny, winning one National League MVP award and finishing in the top-11 in voting each of his first three years in the majors.
Jan 12 - 4:10 PM

Kris Bryant went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in the Cubs' loss to the Nationals on Wednesday in Game 4 of the NLDS.

None of the Cubs' hitter had much of a chance against Stephen Strasburg, but Bryant's struggles were the most troubling, and the most obvious. His fourth strikeout was on a slider from Ryan Madson that Bryant normally hits out of the state, much less the ballpark. The 2016 NL MVP will have to be better than he was Wednesday if the Cubs have any chance of repeating as World Series champions.

Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Willson Contreras, Ben Zobrist, and Jason Heyward are all out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Thursday in St. Louis.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon has constructed a mighty hangover lineup following Wednesday night's NL Central clinching celebration at Busch Stadium. Taylor Davis is at third base, Victor Caratini is at first base, and Alex Avila will start at catcher Thursday night against the Cardinals.
Thu, Sep 28, 2017 02:48:00 PM

Kris Bryant went 3-for-4 with a home run, a walk, and two runs scored in the Cubs' win over the Cardinals on Monday.

Bryant singled and scored in the top of the first, belted a solo homer in the top of the second, and then added another single in the top of the seventh. The reigning National League MVP has a somewhat underwhelming RBI total (73) this season, but he's up to 29 home runs and his OPS sits at .954.
