The news on Kris Bryant is good after he got hit in the face by a fastball from Rockies pitcher German Marquez on Sunday. He passed all concussion related tests and only has a laceration above his left eye due to his sunglasses. He'll continue to be monitored.

Cubs star Kris Bryant left Sunday's game against the Rockies after getting hit in the head by a pitch from righty German Marquez in the top of the first inning. Bryant looked woozy as he was helped off the field by the training staff. An ensuing argument, presumably about the intent of the pitch, got Cubs hitting coaches Chili Davis and Andy Haines ejected from the game. The Cubs followed the HBP with four hits, scoring three times, all with two outs.

Just called up, Cubs' Bote doubles in 1st bat

Cubs rookie and Coloradan David Bote, called up earlier Saturday, doubled in his first major league at-bat at Coors Field.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

Yu Darvish has failed to pitch at least 5 innings in 3 of 4 starts as a Cub this season. Tonight he was pulled in the fifth after giving up a 2-0 lead, allowing 5 runs to score with two outs. And once again he apparently let some adversity get the best of him as he walked pitcher Tyler Anderson before the floodgates opened. Last start it was a balk that admittedly did him in. Darvish's ERA rose to 6.86 after his 4.2 IP, 5 run outing on Saturday vs the Rockies. It also included four walks. The Cubs signed him to a 6-year, $126 million deal this past off-season.

Great moment at Coors Field where 25 year old Cubs rookie David Bote doubles to right center in his first AB in the big leagues. And it comes in his hometown of Denver. Bote was drafted in the 18th round in 2012 and spent parts of 4 years at Single-A. He subsequently got thrown out attempting to steal third base.

Watch newly called up Cubs infielder David Bote discuss making his debut tonight in his hometown. He'll bat 8th and play third base against his childhood team, the Rockies. Bote was an 18th round pick in 2012.

The Cubs placed Ben Zobrist (back) on the 10 day DL on Saturday retroactive to April 18. Taking his place is 25 year old David Bote who will make his ML debut against the Rockies Sat night at Coors Field. Bote will bat 8th and play third base after an impressive spring camp. He was drafted in the 18th round in 2012 making this his 7th year in the Cubs system. He's a Colorado native and currently lives about 10 miles north of Denver. He was added to the Cubs 40-man roster last November.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

Ben Zobrist said he's going on the 10 day DL to take care of a back injury. It's not serious but he's been out the last few days anyway and the Cubs can make it retroactive so Zobrist can return after the team's current road trip. They'll call someone up from Triple-A for Saturday's game but the move hasn't been announced by the team yet.

Watch Albert Almora react to his first career 4 hit game in the Cubs blow out win over the Rockies. He also scored a career high 4 runs.
