Bryant will begin a rehab assignment at Albuquerque on Tuesday, and he'll likely appear in several games prior to rejoining the major-league club for the Rockies' weekend series at home against the Mets.

Rockies' Kris Bryant: Beginning rehab assignment
Bryant (back) will report to Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday for a rehab assignment and could rejoin the Rockies for Friday's series opener against the Mets, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
The 30-year-old received a cortisone injection last week and resumed taking batting practice Friday, and his ramping up of baseball activities over the past few days has apparently gone well.

Rockies' Kris Bryant: Progressing in recovery
Manager Bud Black said Saturday that Bryant (back) is making "steady progress" in his recovery, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
The Rockies revealed Wednesday that Bryant hasn't yet resumed hitting, but he's apparently making progress in other areas as he works to recover from his back injury.

Rockies' Kris Bryant: Not yet hitting
Manager Bud Black said Wednesday that Bryant (back) hasn't yet resumed hitting, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports.
Bryant played catch Sunday, but he hasn't yet been cleared to hit as he continues to deal with his back injury. The 30-year-old is eligible to return from the IL as early as Saturday against the Diamondbacks, but it appears as though he'll require additional time to recover. Bryant previously mentioned the possibility of a rehab assignment, but that will likely be decided once he's able to resume hitting.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Kris Bryant: Return date unknown
Bryant (back) played catch Sunday but remains without a timetable to return, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Bryant has yet to swing a bat since hitting the injured list, and Sunday marked his first reported activity of any kind since first being sidelined. While it remains possible that he returns when initially eligible Friday, that doesn't seem overly likely given that Bryant mentioned the possibility of going on a rehab assignment before activation. Sam Hilliard should continue to receive an uptick in playing time in Bryant's absence, though he has played exclusively against right-handed pitchers this season.... See More ... See Less

Elehuris Montero was recalled to take his place on the roster.... See More ... See Less

Manager Bud Black said Friday that Bryant (back) could require a trip to the injured list, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Bryant has missed the last three games due to back stiffness, and he's still dealing with the issue ahead of Friday's series opener against Cincinnati. If the 30-year-old ultimately heads to the IL, Connor Joe and Sam Hilliard would likely see most of the playing time in left field in Bryant's absence.... See More ... See Less

Rockies' Kris Bryant: Scratched with stiff back
The Rockies scratched Bryant from their lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies due to a stiff back, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Bryant's back acted up after he played all nine innings in left field while going 1-for-3 with a walk in Monday's 8-2 win in the series opener. Sam Hilliard was added to the Colorado outfield as a replacement Tuesday for Bryant, who is considered day-to-day.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Kris Bryant: Not in Monday's lineup
Bryant isn't starting Monday's game against the Phillies.
Bryant was removed from Saturday's game against the Cubs due to tightness in his quadriceps, but he played through the issue in Sunday's series finale and went 1-for-3 with a double, a run, an RBI, a walk and a strikeout. The Rockies haven't indicated whether Monday's absence is related to his quadriceps issue, but he'll be out of the lineup for the first time this year. Sam Hilliard will draw the start in left field and bat eighth.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Kris Bryant: Back in action as DH
Bryant (quadriceps) will serve as the Rockies' designated hitter and will bat second in Sunday's game against the Cubs, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
For just the second time this season, Bryant will start in a non-defensive role after making seven of his previous eight starts as a left fielder. The Rockies' decision to include Bryant in the lineup in any capacity is at least a reassuring sign that the tight quad that resulted in his removal from Saturday's 9-6 win isn't a major concern. Bryant should be ready to reclaim his usual spot in the outfield within the Rockies' next few games.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Kris Bryant: Lifted from Saturday's game
Bryant exited Saturday's game against the Cubs due to tightness in his quadriceps, Kyle Newman of The Denver Postreports.
Bryant was pulled in the sixth inning as a precaution with Colorado holding a comfortable 8-1 lead. The issue doesn't sound serious, as manager Bud Black said after the game it's possible Bryant doesn't miss additional time. Even if Bryant is forced to miss Sunday's game, it doesn't sound as if a stint on the injured list will be needed.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Kris Bryant: Another multi-hit performance

He's recorded at least one hit in every game so far. He's yet to go yard in a Rockies uniform, but the star third baseman is hitting .379 with a .889 OPS over his first 32 plate appearances to begin the season.... See More ... See Less
