Pre-game Notes, Sights and Sounds:
Ross says Bryant dealing with left elbow bruise but not concerned, Contreras coming off long day/night— Mark Gonzales (@MDGonzales) July 28, 2020
Normal day off for Willson Contreras. Kris Bryant dealing with some “bumps and bruises” specifically with the elbow. Neither KB or Rossy are concerned. Just maintenance. #Cubs— Russell Dorsey (@Russ_Dorsey1) July 28, 2020
No tests for Bryant, just treatments— Mark Gonzales (@MDGonzales) July 28, 2020
Anthony Rizzo is 69-for-206 with an OPS of 1.028 when he hits leadoff. #Cubs— Andy Martínez (@amartinez_11) July 28, 2020
