Chicago Cubs top prospect Kris Bryant has a left foot contusion and is day-to-day after undergoing an MRI on Sunday morning, the team announced after the Cubs' 2-1 win over the New York Mets.

Bryant left Saturday’s Triple-A Iowa game against Salt Lake after aggravating an injury he’s reportedly been battling for a few days.

Bryant, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2013 draft, has 40 home runs and 103 RBIs split between Double-A and Triple-A this season. There was speculation he might get called up to the major leagues in September when rosters expand, but the Cubs say that won’t be the case in his first full professional year.

Bryant was not in the lineup on Sunday. The injury is not expected to be serious.
