but shoulder surgeries are not a joke. this isn't an ankle sprain. Go look at jason heyward before he hurt his shoulder and look at him now.


KB is having surgery? I just read he took “dry swings” with no pain, nothing about surgery



he walked without assistance yesterday - doctors now think he may recover full use of his extremities

Joe Maddon doesn't expect that Kris Bryant will get back to 100 percent this season; the #Cubs' goal is for his shoulder ailment to be 'manageable'

He had a horrid June (lack of power, obviously, but also a sky high K rate), but in his ten July games he was still putting up a .787 OPS, even without showing any power (1 HR, 2 2Bs). Assuming any sort of health improvement from the time off, that's still a valuable hitter for this team going forward this year. Not ideal, but he can definitely help.

it's kind of worrying that the only remedy we've heard suggested so far is for him to not play baseball. i'd almost feel better if they just said he's going to have surgery in the offseason.

I'm long been picturing a heartwarming scene of him and Yu holding hands as they get wheeled into the operating room together.
