3B/OF Kris Bryant (right ankle sprain) did not play Thursday after he left Wednesday's game after he turned his ankle on third-base bag after catching a foul pop. "It feels a ton better," said Bryant, standing in front of his locker before Thursday's game. "It is just one of those nagging things. After the game we did a bunch of stuff that didn't feel good (for his foot) but made me feel better today." Bryant doesn't feel he will have to go on the disabled list. "It won't be long" until he returns, said the Las Vegas native. He didn't say if he would be available to pinch-hit Thursday. "I just got here," he said about two hours before the 4:05 ET first pitch. When could Bryant return? "We're not applying any kind of finish line to it," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. "I saw him walk on the bus. Thought it was encouraging to see that. I honestly don't know. Just got to give us a couple of days to figure it out at that point." Since the Cubs are off Monday could Bryant play Tuesday against Tampa Bay? "I would think that's what it's going to be. When you sprain your ankle, it just doesn't get better over night," Maddon said. Bryant is hitting .264 with 16 homers and 32 RBIs and a .520 slugging average.
