​Chicago Cubs third base star Kris Bryant was ​placed on the disabled list in late-June with shoulder inflammation, but after having a successful ​rehab assignment, Bryant will return to the lineup on Wednesday.


Bryant will start at third base and bat third this afternoon against the San Francisco Giants.

Bryant missed the last three weeks with left shoulder inflammation and in two minor league rehab games he went 2-for-6 with a homer and three RBI.


By activating Bryant from the disabled list, the Cubs sent down infielder David Bote to make room on the active roster.

​​Bryant isn't putting up his usual power numbers you'd expect from him heading into the All-Star break, but in 66 games he's slashing .280/.383/.481 with 32 extra-base hits (nine home runs) and 36 RBI.
