Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant left today’s game against the Braves almost as soon as it started. Bryant slapped a first-inning double off R.A. Dickey, then tried to take third on a passed ball, although he was picked off by Tyler Flowers to end the inning. While sliding into third, his left hand got caught on Johan Camargo’s cleat, which forced Bryant to leave the game.
Bryant was promptly replaced by Tommy La Stella.
Update, 1:44 p.m. EDT: Sprained pinkie for Bryant.
