Cubs hope to have 3B Bryant back against Royals

The Chicago Cubs hope to have third baseman Kris Bryant back in the lineup when they host the Kansas City Royals on Monday night to open a two-game series.

Bryant, a three-time All-Star and the 2016 National League MVP, has missed the past two games because of stomach problems. He repeatedly has tested negative for the coronavirus, the team said, but he remained in baseball's COVID-19 protocol as a precautionary measure.

"It's kind of out of our hands right now," Cubs manager David Ross said to reporters Sunday. "Just following the protocols through MLB. He really needs to be commended for going in and getting checked out. With all we've got going on, we're trying to take the right precautions just to keep everybody safe.
