Cubs' Kris Bryant Leaves Game After Being Hit By Pitch

23 April 2018

Bryant was hit for a National League-leading seventh time on a 96 miles per hour pitch on a 1-2 count.

Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant took a pitch right to the head during Sunday's game against the Colorado Rockies and he was evaluated for a concussion.

Chicago manager Joe Maddon and members of the training staff immediately came out to check on Bryant, who was obviously shaken up.

Dealing with back tightness since spring training and without an appearance since April 14, two-time World Series champion and three-time All-Star Zobrist is on the 10-day disabled list in Major League Baseball.

In the aftermath of the errant pitch, Cubs hitting coach Chili Davis and assistant hitting coach Andy Haines were ejected.

David Bote pinch-ran for Bryant and scored the first of three runs.

In 18 games this season, Bryant is hitting.319 with two home runs and 11 RBI.
