Cubs third base prospect Kris Bryant sent a scare through the organization on Saturday when he had to leave a game at Triple-A Iowa with pain in his left big toe. But all is well with the budding superstar.

Bryant underwent a range of tests over the weekend that all turned up negative and he doubled and drew a walk in his return to the Iowa Cubs’ starting lineup on Tuesday, tweets Carrie Muskat of MLB.com.

Bryant entered play Tuesday with a .333/.441/.678 batting line, 40 home runs, and 103 RBI in 125 games between Double-A and Triple-A. He is on track to make his major league debut in early 2015.

    For the first time in a while, must be exciting to be a Cubs fan. So many promising young guys under cheap control for a long time. Gonna be a scary lineup in a few years with plenty of money to spend on some front-line starters.

      Exactly. Better to spend money on pitching in the FA market than to spend prospects via trade.

    He’s scheduled to be declared a bust in July 2016

      “What do you mean he ONLY hit 35 homers in his first 162 big league games?! He’s a bust! Fire Theo! Bring back Larry Himes!”

    George Springer 2.0…. not in him as a player, but in the WHAT THE F*** DO I NEED TO DO TO GET A PROMOTION AROUND HERE!? aspect. He’s proven that he can flat out rake and I would love to see how it translates to the big leagues. You can argue team control blah blah blah all you want. Give him a taste of the show now so he knows what to prepare for all offseason and watch him EXPLODE in 2015. He’s a peacock….you gotta let him fly.

      You can argue flying peacock blah blah blah all you want….you’re gonna have to wait until 2015.

    He’s going to have to stop toeing chicks if he wants to stay on the field. Rumor has it the dudes big toe has major girth.

    He will be a superstar. If you look at their potential line-up this time next year, they will be scary, if these prospects produce the way most people think they will. Rizzo, Castro and Bryant are flat-out studs. Then you add Alcantara, Baez, Soler and Coghlan and they have a nice line-up. I know they have to do it for a longer peiod of time, but Arrieta, Hendricks and Wada look like they are a nice start to the rotation. I also expect them to go after Lester in free agency. If things work out for them, they might be a legit contender before we all thought.
