Cubs third baseman David Bote’s spring isn’t off to a great start.  In the second inning of Saturday’s game against the Giants, he took a Madison Bumgarner pitch off of the helmet.

The pitch off of the helmet dropped Bote to a knee.  He was removed from the game and able to walk off the field under his own power. 

Hopefully they removed Bote for precautionary reasons because it was a Spring Training game.  You hate to see a guy get hurt this early in the spring.
