Cubs activate Kris Bryant

3 Comments

The Chicago Cubs have activated third baseman Kris Bryant from the 10-day disabled list. He will start at third base and hit third on Wednesday afternoon against the Giants.

Bryant missed nearly three weeks with inflammation in his left shoulder. When he went down he was hitting .280/.383/.481 with nine home runs and 36 RBI in 311 plate appearances. In his absence Joe Maddon deployed Tommy La Stella, Ian Happ and, occasionally, Javier Baez at third base. Now it’s Bryant’s position again.
