Kris Bryant singled, drew a walk and stole a base in Tuesday's win over the Pirates.
The Cubs' offense didn't show up in this one, but Bryant still managed to carve out a solid little day for his fantasy owners. Bryant's stolen base total fell to eight after he had 13 his rookie season, but he's now already on a too-early-to-talk-about pace of 32 steals. Apr 25 - 9:59 PM

Kris Bryant finished 3-for-4 with two walks Monday in the Cubs' rout of the Pirates.

Bryant struck out in his first at-bat against Pirates starter Chad Kuhl, but the reigning National League MVP reached in each of his next five plate appearances. He doubled and scored in the Cubs' five-run second inning and his RBI single in the top of the sixth put Chicago up 12-1. In one night, Bryant lifted his season OPS from .717 to .782. He's ready to explode.

Kris Bryant delivered a go-ahead sacrifice fly as the Cubs defeated the Reds 6-5 in 11 innings on Friday.

Albert Almora set the stage for the winning run after reaching on a one-out single against Robert Stephenson. He went first to third on a single from Kyle Schwarber before Bryant flied out to left field to bring him home. Bryant finished 1-for-5 on the night and is hitting just .227/.325/.394 with two homers and 10 RBI through 16 games so far, but things should only get better from here for fantasy owners.
Apr 21 - 11:47 PM's Tom Verducci reports that the Cubs tried extending several of their young players over the winter, including Kris Bryant, but every one of the efforts "got nowhere."

Bryant's agent, Scott Boras, told Verducci that he and Cubs president Theo Epstein "were on the same page" when it comes to Bryant's fit with the team, but Verducci adds that the two sides "made no traction on value." The third baseman will have his first of four arbitration years next winter, as he's not slated for free agency until after the 2021 season. Bryant's teammates Addison Russell and Kyle Schwarber are also in line to hit free agency at the same time.

Kris Bryant smashed his first two home runs of the season on Saturday but the Cubs still fell to the Pirates.

He cranked a two-run bomb in the Cubs' four-run first inning and drilled a solo shot in the last inning to draw the Cubs within one run but it wasn't enough. Bryant homered 39 times last year en route to winning the NL MVP Award but had not homered in his first 10 games prior to today's outburst. It has been a slow start for Bryant but he is likely to be a beast the rest of the way.
Apr 15 - 6:38 PM

Kris Bryant went 3-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in the Cubs' win over the Brewers on Sunday.

Bryant also had a big game Saturday and seems to be finding his groove offensively after struggling through the Cubs' first four regular-season games. He is 6-for-10 over the last two days.
Apr 9 - 6:19 PM

Kris Bryant went 3-for-6 with three RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 11-6 victory over the Brewers.

He drove in two runs with a double in the third inning, then singled home a run in the fourth. Even after today's excellent game, Bryant's lowly .182/.280/.273 slash line pales in comparison to his career rates. He is off to a slow start but there will be plenty more big games like today's before this campaign is over.
Apr 9 - 12:01 AM

Kris Bryant went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Friday's game in Milwaukee.

The single and steal were each the first of 2017, and it was also the first outing in four games Bryant wasn't sent back to the dugout with at least one strikeout. It's been a slow start for Bryant, but there is no reason for fantasy owners to be concerned at this point.
Apr 8 - 12:35 AM

Kris Bryant was hitless in five at-bats Tuesday in the Cubs' win over the Cardinals.

The reigning National League MVP has looked a tad rusty in the first two games this season, going 0-for-9 with four strikeouts. You shouldn't have to ask, but no, we're not worried.
Apr 4 - 11:23 PM

Kris Bryant had a miserable night at the plate in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts.

Bryant whiffed in each of his three plate appearances against Cardinals' starter Carlos Martinez. Then in the biggest spot of the night, with the bases loaded and one out in the eighth inning, he popped out to right field which failed to deliver the tying run. The reigning National League MVP will put this one behind him and look to take out any aggression on Adam Wainwright on Tuesday.
Apr 3 - 12:13 AM

Kris Bryant went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a double in Saturday's split-squad Cactus League win over the Reds.

Spring results matter naught for the reigning NL MVP, but for history's sake, his two-run home run on Saturday was his fourth of the spring, the double his second. The stud third baseman is coming off a 2016 season in which he slashed .292/.385/.554 with 39 homers and 102 RBI over the course of 603 at-bats.
Mar 25 - 8:41 PM

Kris Bryant will receive $1.05 million from the Cubs in 2017, per Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.

That's a record for a second-year pre-arbitration player, surpassing the $1 million salary that Mike Trout got from the Angels in 2014. Bryant, the 2016 National League MVP, boasts a .284/.377/.522 batting line with 65 home runs and 201 RBI through his first 306 major league games. He should be one of the first five picks in fantasy drafts this spring.
Mar 9 - 6:06 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Cubs are still in talks with agent Scott Boras regarding Kris Bryant's contract.

Bryant, who earned just $652,000 during his MVP campaign in 2016, is expected to approach the $1 million record salary for a pre-arbitration eligible player that Mike Trout earned in 2014. Bryant will be arbitration-eligible for the first time next winter.
Mar 5 - 7:03 PM

Kris Bryant went 1-for-3 with a grand slam in Saturday's 9-3 Cactus League win over the Dodgers.

Bryant socked his grand slam off Brock Stewart with two outs in the fourth inning. That jolt served as the star third baseman's first home run of the spring. Needless to say, Bryant is an elite of the fantasy elites, winning the 2016 NL MVP via a marvelous .292/.385/.554 triple-slash to pair with 30 homers, 102 RBI eight steals and 121 runs scored.
Mar 4 - 6:10 PM

Kris Bryant was named as the winner of the NL MVP Award by the Baseball Writers Association of America on Thursday.

It was almost unanimous, as Byrant nabbed 29 out of the 30 first-place votes. Daniel Murphy got the other first-place vote and finished second in the balloting. Corey Seager was just behind him in third place. Bryant won the NL Rookie of the Year Award just one year ago and it hasn’t taken him long to emerge as one of the game’s best players. The 24-year-old made impressive strides with his plate discipline this past season while batting .292/.385/.554 with 30 homers, 102 RBI, eight stolen bases, and 121 runs scored. When talking about his value to the Cubs, one can’t ignore his willingness to play all over the field. While he mostly played third base, he also made starts between left field, right field, and first base. Bryant is the first Cubs player to win the NL MVP Award since Sammy Sosa did it in his 66-homer season in 1998. He likely has many more individual accolades ahead of him.
