Kris Bryant has missed his second straight game since being hit with a 96 MPH fastball that ricocheted off the brim of his helmet during Sunday's wild win against the Colorado Rockies.

Cubs officials said following the game that Bryant passed the concussion test and only had a laceration above is eye due to the impact of the baseball to his sunglasses.

Joe Maddon said on Wednesday that Bryant would see team doctor Dr. Stephen Adams in Chicago on Thursday and that Bryant starting on Thursday against the Brewers would be a "best case scenario" and he is still "under evaluation."

"Doc Adams has the final say," Maddon said. "I guess when he gets back home, it will be really solidified."

Maddon added that he is thinking that everything is OK and they are just monitoring the situation.

“I really anticipate good soon. If anything went the other way, I think we’d be surprised.” It appears that everyone is just doing their due dilgence and making sure Bryant is 100 percent before throwing him back out there in the batter's box. With the Cubs offense hitting on all cylinders recently, there is no rush for the former MVP to hurry back before he is ready.

Bryant is hitting .319 with two homers, seven doubles, 11 RBIs, and 1.003 OPS in 19 games this season.
