This is dragging along slowly.

Cubs star third baseman Kris Bryant hasn't swung a bat in two weeks since he landed on the disabled list for the second time this season with left shoulder inflammation.

Bryant spoke with the media on Sunday and had the following update on his shoulder rehab.

“Just strengthening it and going through what the trainers are recommending,” he said via the Chicago Tribune. “I’m feeling pretty good. Time to recover is only going to help. They haven’t really talked about a rehab stint. We’re just trying to be smart about it, and I think it’s something we can really knock out.”

Bryant doesn't like to be out of the lineup and not being able to help his teammates win ballgames.

“It’s not fun,” he said. “It would be nice to miss only a couple games, but sometimes things take a little longer. It’s just unfortunate, but I think everybody has to go through it at some point of their career. It’s just another thing we all have to learn from.”

This doesn't sound great for Bryant or the Cubs as he might be out for several more weeks. However, they don't need rush the rehab process and make it a lingering problem for years to come.

For the season, Bryant is batting .276 with 11 homers and 44 RBIs.
