Chicago Cubs top prospect Kris Bryant is back in the lineup for the Iowa Cubs after not starting the past two games with a left foot contusion.

Bryant left Saturday's game early after suffering the injury and missed Sunday's game. He was used as a pinch-hitter on Monday, drawing a walk before being lifted for a pinch-runner. He will bat third and play third base against Salt Lake in the 12:05 p.m. CT game Tuesday.

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.
