Kris Bryant leaves Cubs' loss early after collision

Chicago Cubs third baseman/outfielder Kris Bryant was removed from Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Reds in the sixth inning.

What It Means:

Bryant exited after colliding with teammate Jason Heyward while the two attempted to catch a fly ball. Cubs manager Joe Maddon says Bryant was hit on the side of the head/neck area, so he may wind up in the concussion protocol. Bryant finished 0-for-3 with a strikeout before leaving.

The 27-year-old is slashing .283/.405/.567 with 12 homers, 34 RBI, 42 runs scored, and a steal through 227 plate appearances.
