CHICAGO (AP) — If Kris Bryant knows anything about where Bryce Harper is going in free agency, he is staying quiet for the moment.
Bryant does know at least one thing that should delight fans of the Chicago Cubs.
“The shoulder is perfectly healed. Feels great,” Bryant said. “Everything about it feels right back to where I was before.”
A healthy Bryant could go a long way to helping erase the sting of a disappointing finish to last season. Chicago blew a five-game lead in the NL Central in September, lost to Milwaukee in a tiebreaker for the division title and then was eliminated by Colorado in the NL wild-card game.
Bryant and company had to watch as the Brewers and Rockies celebrated on consecutive October days at Wrigley Field.
“It’s kind of good for us to go through that, get our teeth kicked in a little bit on our field, game 163 and then the wild-card game,” Bryant said Friday on the first day of the Cubs’ annual fan convention.
“I think ultimately we’ll all learn from it, and yeah, come out with a chip on our shoulder definitely.”
Bryant was working on another good season last year before he made two trips to the disabled list because of inflammation in his left shoulder. The 2016 NL MVP finished with career lows in games played (102), batting average (.272), home runs (13) and RBIs (52).
“There was a lot going on,” Bryant said. “It was just kind of hard to get it to heal when you take a week off and it’s like ‘OK you’re feeling better let’s see what you do with some swings,’ rather than the offseason, you kind of dedicate a whole two months to just working out and getting it stronger and kind of letting everything settle down.
“I think that’s what I really needed.”
When Bryant is on top of his game, he remains one of the majors’ most dangerous hitters. He hit .292 with 39 homers and 102 RBIs three years ago, helping the Cubs win the World Series for the first time since 1908.
Center fielder Albert Almora Jr. said Bryant “grew a lot as a person and as a teammate” last year.
“Being hurt, having to be there for the boys when he’s limited on the field, was tough for him, but I think he handled it very well,” Almora said.
While Bryant was in and out of the lineup, Chicago still finished fourth in the NL with 761 runs. But it had one or zero runs in 39 regular-season games. It managed just two runs over 22 innings in its final two games of the year.
Cubs fans had hoped the team might address its inconsistent offense with a blockbuster contract for Harper, but it doesn’t sound as if the team has room for such a deal in its budget.
Bryant hangs out with Harper in the offseason sometimes, but he said the Las Vegas natives don’t talk about baseball very much. The quiet winter for the Cubs is just fine with him, too.
“Honestly, I understand some of the fan frustration, but as a player that feels pretty good knowing that your owner and your president and GM all trust the team that we have,” Bryant said. “That means something to us.”

(CBS NEWS) – A group of white teenagers, many wearing “Make America Great Again” hats, were captured on video taunting a Native American Vietnam veteran singing during the first Indigenous People’s March on Friday. The video, posted to YouTube by user KC Noland, went viral on Twitter.
Nathan Phillips, the man mocked by the teenagers outside of the Lincoln Memorial, said in a video posted to Instagram by user ka_ya11 that he heard them chanting “build that wall.”
“This is indigenous land, you’re not supposed to have walls here. We never did for a millennia. We never had a prison; we always took care of our elders, took care of our children, always provided for them, taught them right from wrong. I wish I could see that energy … put that energy to making this country really, really great,” Phillips said, wiping away tears.
The teenagers were identified on social media as attending Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills, Kentucky. They were in Washington, D.C., to attend the March for Life rally, an annual gathering of anti-abortion activists, which included an appearance from Vice President Mike Pence on Friday.
The Diocese of Covington and Covington Catholic High School said that “the matter is being investigated and we will take appropriate action, up to and including expulsion.”
“We condemn the actions of the Covington Catholic High School students towards Nathan Phillips specifically, and Native Americans in general, Jan. 18, after the March for Life, in Washington, D.C. We extend our deepest apologies to Mr. Phillips. This behavior is opposed to the Church’s teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person,” the statement said.
They also apologized to March for Life attendees, saying that the teenagers’ actions had “tainted” the event, and that they expressed “our most sincere apologies to all those who attended the March and all those who support the pro-life movement.”
Democratic Rep. Deb Haaland, one of the first Native American women to serve in Congress, tweeted a statement condemning the actions of the students.
“This Veteran put his life on the line for our country. The students’ display of blatant hate, disrespect, and intolerance is a signal of how common decency has decayed under this administration. Heartbreaking,” she wrote.
