back right before the stretch run.According to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authenti ... hes-jersey , Kris Bryant finished a minor league rehab assignment Thursday and is expected to be activated for Saturday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies.Bryant hasn't played for the Cubs since a July 23 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks because of a shoulder injury.Bryant was also out from June 22 through July 10 and has played just 76 games this season.He is slashing .276/.380/.474 with 11 home runs and 44 RBI in those contests, which is below his normal production. He won the 2015 National League Rookie of the Year with 26 home runs and 99 RBI, captured the 2016 NL MVP with 39 long balls and 102 RBI, and then drilled 29 homers last year while helping Chicago reach the playoffs all three seasons.Since Bryant last played Jose Berrios Jersey , the Cubs added Daniel Murphy to their formidable lineup. Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Javier Baez, Murphy http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authenti ... bar-jersey , Ben Zobrist, Kyle Schwarber and Willson Contreras represent a group that can do serious damage in the postseason, and that offensive depth is a primary reason the team survived a setback to arguably its best player.Chicago sports a 78-54 record, which is the best mark in the National League and has it 4.5 games ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Central.However Anibal Sanchez Jersey , the division is far from wrapped up considering the Cubs play the Brewers six times in the first two weeks of September and finish their season with three games against the Cardinals.Having Bryant to anchor the lineup and patrol the hot corner in those contests and then the postseason hould Chicago qualify ill bolster the Cubs' chances to capture their second World Series crown in three years. Lachlan Cunningham/Getty ImagesSan Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey left Friday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field with an apparent head injury.Per NBC Sports Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic, Posey was removed in the third inning after recording a single. He took a foul ball off his catcher's mask during the first inning.The Athletic's Andrew Baggarlynoted it was possible Posey experienced symptoms after running down the first-base line prior to his exit.The 31-year-old became an All-Star for the sixth time in 2018, though he didn't represent the National League in the All-Star Game itself. He sat out the event in order to deal with a lingering hip injury.The injury could help explain Posey's somewhat underwhelming offensive numbers compared to his production in recent years. Through 90games, he's batting .293 with five home runs and 37 RBI.By comparison Eduardo Escobar Jersey , Posey averaged 15 homers and 81 RBI with a .308 batting average over his previous three seasons, per Baseball Reference.The Giants are hanging on the edge of playoff contention with a 56-54 record. They trail the Los Angeles Dodgers by five games in the National League West.Nick Hundley will take over for Posey as San Francisco's primary catcher. The 34-year-old is slugging .475 in 56 games this season.
