Kris Bryant is not in the Cubs' starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's showdown against the Reds.

It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for the hard-hitting third baseman. Tommy La Stella is starting in his place at the hot corner and batting leadoff against Anthony DeSclafani and the Reds.

Kris Bryant will hit leadoff Monday against the Dodgers.

It will be his third start out of the leadoff spot this season, all three of them coming in the past two weeks. Ben Zobrist hit leadoff on Sunday, but he's in the No. 3 spot Monday.

Kris Bryant snapped his homerless streak while driving in four runs as the Cubs walloped the Cardinals 13-5 on Friday.

His third-inning blast against Michael Wacha — a two-run shot — was his first since May 14. It snapped a 107 at-bat homerless streak, the longest of his career. It was never really in doubt that a big night was just around the corner. Look for the home runs to start coming in bunches soon enough.

Kris Bryant is getting the day off Wednesday against the Brewers.

Bryant went 0-for-4 on Tuesday night and is batting just .229/.319/.277 over his last 94 plate appearances. He hasn't hit a homer since May 14. Tommy La Stella is starting at third base and batting third for the Cubs on Wednesday afternoon versus Milwaukee right-hander Jhoulys Chacin.

Making his first ever start in the leadoff spot, Kris Bryant went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Friday's win over the Pirates.

All three hits were singles for Bryant, who scored his 35th run of the season. Cubs manager Joe Maddon is known to tinker with his lineup and it's unlikely Bryant will spend much more, if any, time in the leadoff spot.

Kris Bryant is not in the Cubs' lineup Sunday.

Kris Bryant went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Mets.

The contest closes the book on a month that saw Bryant start off strong, hitting six homers in the first two weeks of action, before finishing on a less impressive note. With Thursday's game, the 26-year-old has eight hits in his last 41 at-bats, with just three doubles and no homers. Cause for concern? Probably not. But noteworthy, since power production is a big part of his game. Bryant has eight dingers, 27 RBI and 32 runs scored overall, batting .286/.401/.524 in 48 games.
