Cubs' Kris Bryant leaves game with apparent finger injury

The Cubs have lost third baseman Kris Bryant at least for Wednesday's game after he appeared to injure a finger on his left hand sliding into third base in the first inning.



The play came when Bryant was attempting to advance on a wild pitch. Braves' catcher Tyler Flowers gunned down Bryant, who slid into third base head first and appeared to catch a finger on third baseman Johan Camargo's foot as he tagged out Bryant.



This comes just one day after Astros All-Star Carlos Correa was put on the DL for a torn ligament in his thumb that stemmed from injuring his hand sliding into home plate in a game versus the Braves before the All-Star break.

Mike Trout also missed some two months earlier this season sliding into second base head first on a stolen base.
