Bryant 'in great shape,' has no limitations
Kris Bryant made his way through Mandalay Bay on Wednesday afternoon, took an elevator to the upper tier of the Delano Hotel and swung by the Cubs' suite. The visit was planned, but it was more about the team checking in on Bryant's offseason than Bryant asking about the team's roster plans.
