Kris Bryant’s Shoulder ‘Not Fully Healed,’ Will Test Again on Friday

Kris Bryant was scheduled to be activated from the DL just in time for Friday’s game against the hot-hitting Cincinnati Reds. But after still feeling discomfort in his ailing shoulder while swinging on Tuesday, the Cubs are unsure of when he will return.

Bryant does feel a little better, but he’s understandably frustrated at the slow healing process, as Joe Maddon told the local Chicago media prior to Wednesday’s game.

So at this point, it’s more of a wait-and-see game. I’m sure we’ll hear more on Friday about a potential return date after Bryant tests the shoulder again, but when he’ll grace us with his presence on the field is less clear than it was a few days ago.
