Kris Bryant, playing right field for the Chicago Cubs today, left today’s game after colliding with Jason Heyward while going for a flyball. The two players converged in deep right-center with Bryant taking the worst of it when his head struck Heyward in the sternum.
There was no immediate update on his condition and there’s a chance this was a precautionary move taken in a lopsided game.
Bryant has been stellar this year, posting a 288/.411/.576 slash while playing a whole slew of positions. After this incident, though, it will be interesting to see of Joe Maddon is as willing to put him out in the outfield.
