Kris Bryant leaves game with ankle injury

Adjust Comment Print

The Cubs finally got some good news after Wednesday's 8-4 loss to the Washington Nationals when they learned that the reigning MVP, Bryant, had a mild to moderate sprain of his right ankle with X-rays coming back negative.

Strasburg (9-2) allowed three runs, two earned, and four hits in his first win against the Cubs.

Osuna's ground-rule RBI double sparked a four-run two-out rally in the first off Snell in his return to the starting rotation after a stint in Triple-A.

"Manager Joe Maddon said they have no timetable regarding Bryant's status but knew for certain that he would not play on Thursday", Muskat wrote.

The whirlwind continued Wednesday beyond the final score, when Kris Bryant rolled his ankle on third base while catching a routine pop up in the fifth inning. He gave up one run on three hits in one inning. "I wanted to get him off the field quickly, get that thing iced as quickly as possible and see what was going on". Strasburg worked seven innings, striking out 13. "It seems like he's getting his act back together". After dropping the second game of the series to the Washington Nationals, Miguel Montero blamed the inability to stop the run game on Jake Arrieta.

The injury to last year's National League MVP occurred in a rather freakish fashion. Only Bryant figured him out, singling to center field as the game's second hitter.

Bryant and Harper - posing with their respective wives, Jessica and Kayla, in the photo - played with and against each other while growing up in Las Vegas. "I'm still a little bit of a ways from throwing", he said. Ross got 62 runs of support in his first four starts then 18 on Saturday against the Cincinnati Reds in his 10th start of the year.

Bryce Harper has heard the rumblings that he wants to sign with the Chicago Cubs when he becomes a free agent following the 2018 season, and he has downplayed them anytime the subject comes up.
