Chicago Cubs third baseman and 2016 National League MVP Kris Bryant left Wednesday night's game in the bottom of the third inning after making a routine out and rolling his ankle on the third base bag.

Bryant was helped off the field by team trainers.

The Cubs announced a mild to moderate right ankle sprain for Bryant. X-Rays came back negative. No announcement was made whether he would be placed on the disabled list yet.

Bryant entered Wednesday night's game hitting .264 with 16 home runs and 32 RBIs.

The Cubs are 39–38 on the season and sit just one game behind the Milwaukee Brewers for first place in the National League Central Division.

Chicago is also currently without World Series MVP Ben Zobrist since he was placed on the disabled list on June 16 with a wrist injury. Outfielder Jason Heyward is on the disabled list with a left hand injury.
