Chicago Cubs slugger Kris Bryant is expected to return to the lineup against the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night according to ESPN's Jesse Rogers. Bryant has been out of the lineup for the last three previous games against the St. Louis Cardinals with a stomach illness. The Cubs need him because their record has dipped below .500 for the season and a pivotal ten game homestead will begin tonight.

In 2017, Bryant is batting .299 with seven homers, 19 RBI, and has a .401 on-base percentage. During his MVP season last year he hit .292 with 39 homers, 102 RBIs, and an on-base percentage of .385. In two seasons at the big league level, he has batted .284 with 65 homers, 201 RBIs, and .377 on-base percentage.

He was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the first round (2nd overall) in the 2013 MLB Draft.
