3B Kris Bryant tested his right ankle in the outfield at Great American Ball Park prior to Friday night's series opener against the Reds and felt well enough to play.

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.

I can't believe that happened," he added of the popup injury. Bryant is hitting .264 with 16 homers and 32 RBIs and a .520 slugging average.

The Atlanta Braves designated right-hander Bartolo Colon for assignment, the team announced Thursday.The Braves called up left-hander Rex Brothers from Triple-A Gwinnett to fill the roster spot of Colon, who owns a 2-8 mark with a bloated 8.14 ERA this season.The decline has been swift for the 44-year-old Colon after he won 62 games over the previous four seasons. The four-time All-Star was a solid 15-8 with a 3.43 ERA for the New York Mets in 2016.Colon rejoined the Braves on Wednesday after being on the disabled list for a strained oblique and stiff back. The return wasn't a triumphant one, as Colon allowed six runs on eight hits with three walks in four innings of a 7-4 setback to the San Diego Padres.--The Milwaukee Brewers placed right-hander Chase Anderson on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.Anderson sustained the injury while swinging in his first at-bat of Milwaukee's 4-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night.Anderson has a 6-2 record with a 2.89 ERA...

Thu Jun 1515:31Struggling Cubs still have time in NL Central
NEW YORK -- The defending World Series champion Chicago Cubs are underwater.They suffered a 9-4 loss to the Mets at Citi Field on Wednesday night to fall to 32-33. At this point a year ago, they were 45-20.This defeat was particularly stinging. The Cubs held a 4-1 lead on Kyle Shwarber's two-run home run in the top of the fourth inning, and their relief pitchers, to date the best-functioning part of the organization, gave up six runs in four innings.Chicago is fortunate to be playing in the NL Central. They go into play on Thursday in second place, just two games behind the Milwaukee Brewers. They are eight games off the pace for the second wild card."We've earned the right to be in this position.
