Chicago Cubs: Kris Bryant injury update

CHICAGO — Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant remains out of action with a wrist injury. David Bote will start in his place at the hot corner for the Cubs' contest with the Chicago White Sox at Wrigley Field on Friday. Meanwhile, at second base, veteran infielder Hernan Perez will make his first start as a Cub.
Bryant injured his left ring finger and wrist when diving for a fly ball last Wednesday, and, although he played with the ailment for several games, the former National League MVP has missed the last three Cubs contests. On Tuesday, Bryant received an injection in his wrist to help alleviate the pain, and he received additional treatment on Friday. "KB" has been able to take swings, though, and is considered day-to-day.
Ross: Bryant continues to progress in right direction, but has to go through treatment today and will take swings for 1st time since injection in wrist. A day to day situation still.— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) August 21, 2020
Cubs taking a "wait and see" approach with Kris Bryant still. He is not in Friday's lineup after injection in left wrist earlier this week (Tuesday). KB will take swings today and see how it goes.— Tony Andracki (@TonyAndracki23) August 21, 2020
