Cubsmanager Joe Maddon pointed to Bryant's status as being day-to-day, while suggesting he was available off the bench Thursday night.
"And making sure the medical procedures are being followed so we do everything right", Maddon said.
Darvish gave up nine runs, 14 hits and eight walks in his previous two outings, losses to Atlanta and Colorado. However, Kris Bryant (head) is finally back and Ben Zobrist (back) has also been activated from the DL, so his services are no longer needed in the Chicago infield today.
"Probably the word on the street is to pitch him inside", Maddon said.
Yu Darvish avoided the fifth-inning blues on a cool Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field, leaving the mound to chants of "Yuuuu" after throwing six strong innings against Milwaukee. He went six innings and yielded an unearned run and three hits with two walks and eight strikeouts but ended up with his third no-decision of the season after the bullpen coughed up a 2-1 lead. After trotting into second, Darvish slipped, but he got to his feet and pitched a scoreless sixth. Stephen Strasburg (2-3) allowed a season-high five runs over 6 1/3 innings for Washington INDIANS 6, MARINERS 5: Corey Kluber struck out 10 in 8 2/3 innings and Cleveland hit five solo home runs, including three in the first inning, to beat Seattle. Darvish left with the Cubs ahead 2-1, but Christian Yelich hit a seventh-inning sacrifice fly off Brian Duensing.
Jeremy Jeffress fanned Almora for the second out and got Baez to bounce to Sogard, who allowed the ball to squib out of his glove near second, then threw wildly past the base while trying for an inning-ending forceout. Pedro Strop got the win and is now 3-0 with a 2.79 ERA on the year. Brandon Morrow, the Cubs' fifth reliever, pitched a ideal ninth for his sixth save in six chances. Milwaukee lost its second straight after an eight-game winning streak. Anderson is allowing just a.206 batting average and has given up three or less runs in four of his first five starts. "And from what I've seen, he always has had a good eye at the plate and doesn't chase (pitches) a whole lot".
