Cubs manager Joe Maddon hasn't decided if Kris Bryant (ankle) will play on Sunday.
Bryant sprained his ankle Thursday and wasn't in the starting lineup on Friday, though he was on deck to pinch-hit. "I'll debate whether to play him or not," said Maddon. "If we don't start him for sure, he'll be able to come off the bench." Javier Baez filled in at third base Friday and would likely do so the same Sunday if Bryant sits. Apr 30 - 4:46 PM

Kris Bryant will undergo a precautionary MRI on his right ankle.

Bryant suffered a mild sprain of his right ankle while running the bases in the third inning on Thursday. The Cubs appear confident that it's nothing serious, but there should be more clarity on his status soon.
Apr 28 - 6:24 PM

Kris Bryant is being evaluated after he rolled his right ankle while running the bases in the third inning.

Bryant singled and eventually came around to score in the third inning. He was also hit by a pair of pitches during the game, but his exit wasn't related to this injury. More should be known on his status on Thursday evening or Friday afternoon.

Kris Byrant left Thursday's game against the Brewers in the fifth inning after being hit by a pair of pitches.

Bryant was hit by Taylor Jungmann in the first and fourth innings. He ran the bases after being hit in the fourth inning, but Javier Baez eventually replaced him in left field to begin the fifth inning. The Cubs should pass along an update at some point on Thursday evening.
Apr 28 - 4:11 PM

Kris Bryant went 4-for-6 with two home runs, including a grand slam, and six RBI in the Cubs' 16-0 beatdown of the Reds.

Bryant basically doubled his home run and RBI totals with the monster night, as he came in with two homers and seven RBI in his first 15 games. His second homer of the night was a grand slam, the third of his career. The great evening raised his batting average 40 points, leaving his line at .273/.333/.500 on the season.
Apr 21 - 10:29 PM

Kris Bryant homered for the second straight game as the Cubs bounced the Reds 8-1 on Thursday.

Bryant finished 2-for-3 with two runs scored in the contest. After going 30 at-bats without a homer to open the season, prompting some alarmists to organize search parties to look for his missing power, the 24-year-old has now homered in each of his last two games. Bryant is hitting .250/.357/.500 with those two homers, five RBI and eight runs scored through his first nine games.
Apr 15 - 12:00 AM

Kris Bryant went 0-for-4 against the Reds on Monday and is batting .200 with no homers in 30 at-bats.

Bryant opened the season batting fifth, but Cubs manager Joe Maddon has already changed that up a bit, switching him and Ben Zobrist, who had been batting third. That's better for Bryant's fantasy value, for sure. He hasn't gotten hot yet, though.
Apr 11 - 11:37 PM

Kris Bryant cranked his first home run of the spring on Tuesday versus the Dodgers.

It was a fifth-inning solo shot to left-center field off Los Angeles right-hander Joe Blanton. Bryant also had an RBI single off Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw in the bottom of the third inning. The 2015 National League Rookie of the Year is a pretty good bet to avoid a sophomore slump.
Mar 8 - 6:25 PM

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that Kris Bryant and Maikel Franco have filed grievances against their teams over manipulation of service time.

There's little disputing that Bryant and Franco were kept in the minors because of financial reasons. Bryant wound up one day and Franco two days shy of the 172 days that comprise a full year of service time. However, it remains to be seen whether anything will come of this. The topic of service-time manipulation will surely be discussed when the current collective-bargaining agreement expires next winter.

Kris Bryant was the unanimous winner of 2015 National League Rookie of the Year honors.

Matt Duffy got 22 of the 30 second-place votes, leaving Jung Ho Kang a distant third in the balloting. That's probably how it should have been. Bryant hit .275/.369/.488 with 26 homers and 99 RBI to run away with the award. His early-season co-favorite, Joc Pederson, got just a single third-place vote after his big fade.

The Baseball Writers Association of America announced Kris Bryant, Matt Duffy and Jung Ho Kang as finalists for the 2015 National League Rookie of the Year award.

It shows you how deep the class of NL rookies was when a guy like Noah Syndergaard doesn't even crack the top three. But, while the class was super deep, Bryant should be a clear winner. The Cubs rookie batted .275/.369/.488 with 26 homers and 99 RBI over 151 games this season.

Kris Bryant went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, a walk and two strikeouts in Wednesday's 8-3 NLCS Game 4 loss to the Mets.

Bryant smacked a two-run homer off Mets reliever Tyler Clippard in the eighth inning, but it merely shifted the score from 8-1 to 8-3. The bomb was Bryant's first of the postseason. Too little, too late for the 23-year-old phenom. While his October didn't end the way Back to the Future II might have predicted, he did accumulate some snazzy numbers in his first year in the bigs. During the 2015 campaign, Bryant slashed .275/.369/.488 with 26 homers, 99 RBI and 13 steals.

Kris Bryant's RBI double in the sixth inning provided the only offense for the Cubs as they fell to the Mets in Game 2 of the NLCS on Sunday.

Bryant also singled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-4. He had his team's lone extra base hit and accounted for two of the Cubs' five total hits. Even with the two-hit attack, Bryant is hitting a mere .185/.241/.407 with one homer and three RBI in the postseason.

Kris Bryant is not in the Cubs' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Reds.

Javier Baez will start at third base and hit sixth against Reds left-hander John Lamb. Chicago is locked into the National League Wild Card Game with the Pirates, so we'd expect some more days off for Cubs regulars.
