Bryant sprained his finger on a headfirst slide in the first inning Wednesday against Atlanta. X-rays were negative, but Bryant had been experiencing soreness and there was some concern about gripping a bat.
Cubs manager Joe Maddon initially had expressed doubt about Bryant playing Saturday.
The 25-year-old Bryant is hitting .275 with 19 homers and 40 RBIs in 88 games. He is batting second in Chicago’s lineup Saturday.
