Bryant took batting practice and ground balls in the field last week at Wrigley Field before being sent out on a rehab assignment.

Bryant went 2-for-6 with a home run and three RBIs in two rehab games for Double-A Tennessee. He traveled from Knoxville to San Francisco on Tuesday night and received the green light from manager Joe Maddon on Wednesday morning.

In 66 games this season, the 26-year-old Bryant is batting .280 with nine homers and 36 RBIs.
