CHICAGO (AP) — Slugger Kris Bryant has left the Chicago Cubs’ game against the Pittsburgh Pirates because of a bruised left wrist after he was hit by a pitch.

The 2016 National League MVP was hit in the wrist by a pitch from Chris Archer during the fourth inning on Tuesday night. Ian Happ replaced him at third base in the sixth after entering as a pinch-hitter in the fifth.

The 26-year-old Bryant was on the disabled list from July 26 to Sept. 1 with left shoulder inflammation. He missed time earlier in the season with the same issue.
