CLEVELAND — Chicago Cubs slugger Kris Bryant departed Tuesday's contest at Progressive Field due to an illness. Prior to the bottom of the sixth, Bryant was replaced in center field by Joc Pederson, who moved over from left field with Nick Martini entering to take his spot in left.
At the time of his departure, Bryant was 1-for-3 with a double in the contest, and he exited with the Cubs trailing the Cleveland Indians 3-2. According to the Cubs, Bryant, who is batting .308 on the season, was feeling "under the weather." No further details are known at this time. The North Siders are currently dealing with a slew of injuries, so missing Bryant for any period of time would be far from ideal.
