Bryant exits vs. Phillies with hamstring tightness


Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant is day to day after exiting Wednesday's game against the Phillies with right hamstring tightness, manager David Ross said.

Bryant was 0-for-2 before exiting, scoring one of the Cubs' five early runs. Patrick Wisdom replaced him at third in the top of the fourth inning.

Bryant was feeling better after getting work done with the team training staff, Ross added after Wednesday's win.

The Cubs experienced another brief scare when an up-and-in pitch from Zack Wheeler nearly hit Wisdom. It deflected off the knob of Wisdom's bat for a foul ball.

Hours before Bryant left the game, Javy Báez was scratched from the starting lineup with a sprained right thumb.
