Cubs standout third baseman Kris Bryant was eligible to be activated from the 10-day disabled list with his right shoulder inflammation injury on Tuesday. However, he is still on the injury list as of Saturday afternoon.

Good news is on the horizon though as Bryant will go on a minor-league rehab assignment this week as he nears his return to the ballclub.

“He probably go out somewhere and gets some at bats,” Maddon said to the media. “We didn’t determine how many and I want to leave that up to him. It’s basically, how do you feel? Are you seeing the ball well? And does your shoulder feel good? Those kind of things.”

Bryant was able to field grounders and take batting practice before Saturday's game.

For the season, Bryant is batting .280 with 20 doubles, three triples, nine homers and 36 RBI in 66 games this season.
