2016 World Series Champ Kris Bryant Makes Rehab Starts Against Bees

SALT LAKE CITY – “This is gonna be a tough play… BRYANT! The Cubs, win the World Series!!!” – Joe Buck, 2016 World Series final out. Much has changed for Kris Bryant since that fateful night in November 2016 when he collected a roller off the bat of Cleveland Indian pinch-hitter Michael Martinez and fired a throw to Anthony Rizzo. The final out of an epic World Series game seven where 17-minutes of rain in extra innings washed away 108-years of disappointment.

May 12 update: Former Cubs Javier Báez, Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and Kyle Schwarber

Last year, after the Cubs sold off the players who led them to the 2016 World Series title, I did a weekly update on their performances. Since many Cubs fans still follow these players and enjoy watching them play, I thought I’d update you again on how they’re doing. I’m not going to do this every week, but as the current Cubs have an off day Thursday, I thought this would be a good time to look at Javier Báez, Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and Kyle Schwarber. Of course, Schwarber wasn’t traded, he was non-tendered before the 2021 season and that, I believe, was a major mistake by Jed Hoyer. At least the Cubs received good prospect value for the other three.

Bryant (back) said Sunday that he'll receive a cortisone shot, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Bryant will be shut down for a few days after receiving his cortisone shot, but he hopes the decision will speed up his recovery process. Once the 30-year-old is healthy, he expects to require a brief rehab assignment to work on his timing.

Rockies' Kris Bryant: Progressing in recovery

Manager Bud Black said Saturday that Bryant (back) is making "steady progress in his recovery, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. The Rockies revealed Wednesday that Bryant hasn't yet resumed hitting, but he's apparently making progress in other areas as he works to recover from his back injury. However, the 30-year-old will remain at the team's extended spring training facility in Arizona to continue his recovery once the Rockies travel to San Francisco this week.

Rockies' Kris Bryant: Not yet hitting

Manager Bud Black said Wednesday that Bryant (back) hasn't yet resumed hitting, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports. Bryant played catch Sunday, but he hasn't yet been cleared to hit as he continues to deal with his back injury. The 30-year-old is eligible to return from the IL as early as Saturday against the Diamondbacks, but it appears as though he'll require additional time to recover. Bryant previously mentioned the possibility of a rehab assignment, but that will likely be decided once he's able to resume hitting.

Rockies' Kris Bryant: Return date unknown

Bryant (back) played catch Sunday but remains without a timetable to return, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Bryant has yet to swing a bat since hitting the injured list, and Sunday marked his first reported activity of any kind since first being sidelined. While it remains possible that he returns when initially eligible Friday, that doesn't seem overly likely given that Bryant mentioned the possibility of going on a rehab assignment before activation. Sam Hilliard should continue to receive an uptick in playing time in Bryant's absence, though he has played exclusively against right-handed pitchers this season.

Cubs: Anthony Rizzo thriving in New York; Kris Bryant hurt

Last year after joining the Yankees at the trade deadline, longtime Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo popped eight home runs and drove in 21 runs in 49 games down the stretch. This year, however, he’s already got a league-best nine long-balls to go with 21 RBI – and he’s done it in just 20 ballgames.
