(670 The Score) Cubs star Kris Bryant was scratched from the team's lineup against the Brewers on Thursday evening due to left wrist soreness and left ring finger soreness.

Bryant hurt his wrist trying to make a catch in the outfield in the fifth inning of a win at Cleveland on Wednesday. He remained in the game after the incident and even hit a home run, though he was removed late in the contest. Afterward, Bryant acknowledged that his wrist hurt.

Bryant had originally been set to play left field Thursday. Kyle Schwarber will start there in his place. Second baseman Nico Hoerner has been moved into the leadoff spot in place of Bryant, who's hitting .196 with two homers and a .706 OPS in 12 games.
