Chicago Cubs: Kris Bryant playing update
|Sunday, August 2, 2020, 12:17 PM- -|
Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant is out for the second straight game against the Pirates on Sunday afternoon.
Bryant self-reported a few symptoms to the medical staff including a terrible stomach ache which forced him to go home early on Saturday.
Cub manager David Ross told the media Sunday that Bryant has gotten two straight negative tests for COVID-19 as they continue to take all the necessary precautions as a team to try to curtail any outbreaks.
"Kris is feeling good," he said via ESPN. "He took a test this morning, came back negative."
Bryant won't be available for today's game as they are following MLB protocols when someone self-reports symptoms.
He will probably be eligible to play on Monday or Tuesday at the earliest depending on his test that comes back tomorrow.
