CHICAGO – The Chicago Cubs today placed infielder Kris Bryant on the 10-day injured list (retroactive to August 19) with a left finger sprain (ring finger).

Bryant, 28, is batting .177 (11-for-62) with two home runs and four RBI in 16 games with the Cubs this year. He originally suffered the injury on August 12 at Cleveland (while attempting a diving catch in left field) and missed the next two games before returning to the lineup on August 15 vs. Milwaukee. Bryant saw action in four games upon his return but has not played since the second game of a doubleheader on August 17 vs. St. Louis.

Chicago’s 60-man Player Pool roster stands at 58 players, with 27 active players (plus five 10-day injured list players) in Chicago and 26 players in South Bend.
