Kris Bryant slugged a solo home run in Tuesday night's 2016 MLB All-Star Game.
Bryant hit a laser to left field off Chris Sale in the top of the first inning to put the National League up 1-0 on the American League. But the NL hitters would manage only one more run against the AL pitching staff and lost homefield advantage in the 2016 World Series with a 4-2 defeat. That could obviously affect Bryant and the first-place Cubs directly. Jul 12 - 11:27 PM

The Cubs entire starting infield of Kris Bryant, Addison Russell, Ben Zobrist and Anthony Rizzo have all been voted as starters for the National League in the All-Star Game.

They'll also be joined by teammate Dexter Fowler, who will start in the outfield assuming he gets clearance from Major League Baseball to do so. Buster Posey will start behind the dish for the National League squad, while Bryce Harper and Yoenis Cespedes will join Fowler in the outfield.

Kris Bryant (knee) is back in the Cubs' lineup Tuesday against the Reds.

Bryant injured his left knee in an outfield collision with teammate Albert Almora Jr. on Monday but was never expected to miss much time. Now it appears he won't miss any. He'll get the nod at third base while batting second against Reds lefty Brandon Finnegan. Bryant leads the National League with 24 HR and is second in RBI with 63. The reigning NL Rookie of the Year is a lock to make his second straight All-Star team when rosters are announced later tonight.

Kris Bryant was pulled from Monday's game after an outfield collision with Albert Almora.

Bryant still caught the ball on that play and he finished out the top of the fifth inning in left field, but Matt Szczur entered as a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the fifth. Bryant slugged his 24th home run of the season earlier in the game. Look for an update soon.

Kris Bryant slugged a solo homer and drew a walk in Friday’s defeat to the Mets.

After going deep in back-to-back games, Bryant now leads the National League with 23 home runs across 77 games this season. Keep in mind that the 24-year-old had 26 homers in 151 games as a rookie. He’s set to obliterate that total in 2016.

Kris Bryant hit his league-leading 22nd home run in Thursday's loss to the Mets.

Bryant hit the homer, a two-run blast, in the first inning off Mets starter Steven Matz. The homer caps a month of June in which he hit 11 home runs -- including his three-homer game earlier in the week -- with 23 RBI and 25 runs scored. The 24-year-old is hitting .279/.369/.564 with 60 RBI and 62 runs scored in all.

Kris Bryant had a night for the ages in Monday's win over the Reds, going 5-for-5 with three homers and two doubles while driving in six runs.

Bryant went deep twice off of Reds starter Dan Straily and once off of reliever Ross Ohlendorf, with two of the longballs reaching the upper deck at Great American Ball Park. He scored four times and totaled 16 bases on the night, which was three shy of Shawn Green's major league record of 19. Dating back to 1913, no player had ever hit three homers and doubled twice in the same game. Bryant's 21 dingers on the season pull him into a tie with Nolan Arenado and Adam Duvall for the National League lead.

Kris Bryant went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts and a sacrifice fly in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

Bryant did loft a third-inning sacrifice fly against Jose Fernandez, but the Cubs' offense was more/less silenced otherwise. For the season, the 24-year-old third-baseman is slashing .265/.367/.520 with 17 doubles, 18 homers and 51 RBI across 279 at-bats.

Kris Bryant is not in Friday's lineup due to a stomach bug.

He could be available to pinch-hit and should be back in the lineup in a day or two. Javier Baez is at third base Friday.

Kris Bryant is not in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

He's just receiving a day of rest. Jason Heyward is also sitting out for the Cubs, as they have Javier Baez at third base and Matt Szczur and Albert Almora in the corner outfield spots.

On the possibility of competing in the Home Run Derby for a second consecutive year, Kris Bryant said, "I don't really want to."

"My mind could change, but I have to get [to the All-Star Game] first. There's still a lot of baseball to be played," Bryant said. The 24-year-old star was the leading vote-getter among NL third basemen as of MLB's last update, so he probably doesn't have to worry about making the Midsummer Classic. Teammate Anthony Rizzo, who also competed in the Derby in Cincinnati last July, wouldn't rule out participating, but said, "We'll see where we're at when it comes. You never know."

Kris Bryant slugged his 14th home run of the season in Wednesday's rout of the Phillies.

It was a two-run homer in the top of the sixth inning. Bryant also singled, stole a base, and scored another run in the top of the eighth as the Cubs went on to win 8-1. The 24-year-old has an .886 OPS in 57 games and he is currently on pace for 39 homers and 120 RBI.
Jun 8 - 4:24 PM

Kris Bryant went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer, which proved to be the difference in Wednesday's 2-1 victory over the Dodgers.

Bryant got a 79 mph breaking ball that lingered too long on the inner-half of the plate, and the 24-year-old slugger demolished it to straight-away center field. It was his 12th homer of the year and raised his RBI total to 39. He's now hitting .280/.366/.510 in 50 games and remains one of the premier hitters in Major League Baseball.
