Cubs superstar Kris Bryant was pulled in the sixth inning of Tuesday’s game in Cleveland.
Originally, it did not seem like good news for Cubs fans. After losing outfielders Jake Marisnick and Ian Happ in the last week due to injuries, the Cubs are incredibly thin in the outfield. An injury to Bryant would simply add to that lack of depth.
Many fans on social media began speculating whether a trade was happening or if he was injured.
However, Bryant was pulled because he’s under the weather, per Marquee Sports Network’s Tony Andracki.
Cubs fans can now breathe a sigh of relief. Hopefully Bryant rests up and is ready for tomorrow afternoon’s game. The Cubs are in action at 12:05 PM CDT to finish their series with Cleveland on Wednesday.
