Chicago Cubs may have been given some good news on Monday night when manager Joe Maddon said their star third baseman Kris Bryant likely would not need to go on the disabled list.

Bryant has missed three straight games, including Monday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He has been hampered with a sore left shoulder.

While he has been out of the lineup, he did take some swings during batting practice. In addition, there is a slight chance that Maddon could use him off of the bench in a pinch-hitting role.

The Cubs have been careful with their slugger. But, the way Maddon was talking, it does not appear like he will be out long.

The 26-year-old has appeared in 66 games this season. He has a .280 batting average with nine home runs and 36 RBIs. He has also scored 40 runs and had 20 doubles and three triples in 74 hits.

Bryant was hit during the third inning on June 21st against the Cincinnati Reds.
