Kris Bryant (oblique) remained out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Thursday. Bryant hasn't appeared in a game since exiting Monday night's series opener against the Pirates with lower right oblique discomfort, and Cubs manager David Ross said Wednesday that he is unsure whether Bryant will be able to return before the end of the regular season. David Bote is back at third base Thursday in Pittsburgh.
