DENVER (AP) Chicago Cubs star Kris Bryant was hit on the head with a 96 mph pitch from Colorado's German Marquez on Sunday but appeared to have escaped serious injury.
Cubs spokesman Peter Chase said Bryant passed tests and had no sign of a concussion. Chase said Bryant had a cut above his left eye and will be on the team charter flight to Cleveland.
"As good as can be expected," manager Joe Maddon said after Chicago's 9-7 win. "I haven't heard the word concussion yet, so hopefully good."
