Cubs 3B Bryant healthy again after last year’s shoulder woes

CHICAGO—If Kris Bryant knows anything about where Bryce Harper is going in free agency, he is staying quiet for the moment.

Bryant does know at least one thing that should delight fans of the Chicago Cubs.

“The shoulder is perfectly healed. Feels great,” Bryant said. “Everything about it feels right back to where I was before.”

Mind you, if pitchers are a sign of anything, your guess is as good as mine how long that will last….

Opening Day possible for Pedroia, who doesn’t need offseason surgery

BOSTON — Dustin Pedroia is not planning on having surgery on his left knee and could be ready for Opening Day, Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Monday.

Pedroia was limited to just three big league games in 2018 and had an arthroscopic procedure on the knee in July. That was after he underwent major surgery on the knee in October 2017.

“He has continued rehab and therapy. And that’s what he is going to continue to do,” Dombrowski said on a conference call. “He will do that through about the middle of December. And start then some additional, then get back into exercising, more physical activities other than the therapy at that point. And then around the middle, sometime in January, beginning of January, middle of January, start running at that point. So we’re hopeful he’ll be ready for the season. So really with that prognosis, I would think most of our — I can never say it’s over, because you just never know what ends up taking place. But we’re really, as far as position players, pretty well set.”

So, how long before the other shoe drops?
