Kris Bryant went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in the Cubs' loss to the Nationals on Wednesday in Game 4 of the NLDS.
None of the Cubs' hitter had much of a chance against Stephen Strasburg, but Bryant's struggles were the most troubling, and the most obvious. His fourth strikeout was on a slider from Ryan Madson that Bryant normally hits out of the state, much less the ballpark. The 2016 NL MVP will have to be better than he was Wednesday if the Cubs have any chance of repeating as World Series champions. Oct 11 - 8:26 PM

Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Willson Contreras, Ben Zobrist, and Jason Heyward are all out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Thursday in St. Louis.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon has constructed a mighty hangover lineup following Wednesday night's NL Central clinching celebration at Busch Stadium. Taylor Davis is at third base, Victor Caratini is at first base, and Alex Avila will start at catcher Thursday night against the Cardinals.

Kris Bryant went 3-for-4 with a home run, a walk, and two runs scored in the Cubs' win over the Cardinals on Monday.

Bryant singled and scored in the top of the first, belted a solo homer in the top of the second, and then added another single in the top of the seventh. The reigning National League MVP has a somewhat underwhelming RBI total (73) this season, but he's up to 29 home runs and his OPS sits at .954.

Kris Bryant went 3-for-4 with a game-winning, two-run home run in the 10th inning to lead the Cubs past the Brewers 5-3 on Thursday.

Oliver Drake threw Bryant a high, straight, 91-mph fastball, and the slugger knew what to do with it, crushing it out to the deepest part of the ballpark. The homer was Bryant's 28th of the season, giving him 69 RBI and 105 runs scored. He's been especially hot since the start of the Mets series eight days ago, going 13-for-33 with three doubles, three homers, 10 RBI and 10 runs scored to raise his overall line to .292/.406/.536.

Kris Bryant is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Rays.

Kris Bryant went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's victory over the Cardinals.

Bryant's solo shot off of Carlos Martinez in the bottom of the fourth inning was the Cubs' first hit of the game and knotted the score up at the time. He also plated their final run of the day with an RBI single in the sixth. The reigning National League MVP is 8-for-16 with two longballs and eight RBI over his last four games.

Kris Bryant went 3-for-5 with a walk and four runs scored as the Cubs crushed the Mets on Wednesday.

He was one of two Cubs to score four runs in the game, Ben Zobrist was the other. The defending National League MVP scored his 100th run of the season in the eighth inning and has a .289 batting average and a .405 on-base percentage with 26 home runs and 63 RBI in 137 games.
Sep 14 - 1:44 AM

Kris Bryant launched a three-run home run and added a sacrifice fly in Tuesday's win over the Mets.

The Cubs were all over the bases in the first three innings but failed to score. They finally broke through in the fourth, with the highlight being Bryant's two-out, three-run tater. It was Bryant's first longball and first RBI this month. He's somehow driven in only 63 on the season despite 26 home runs and a .285/.402/.526 batting line.
Sep 12 - 11:58 PM

Kris Bryant hit his 25th home run of the season, finishing 2-for-5 with the two-run homer and two runs scored, in a win over the Braves on Thursday.

The sixth-inning tater was a historic one, marking the first time in Cubs history that a player has hit at least 25 homers in each of his first three seasons. Bryant got to 26 in his rookie year before exploding for 39 in his MVP campaign last year. It likely won't be the last record, Cubs-specific or otherwise, for the 25-year-old, who is hitting .293/.410/.538 with his 25 homers, 59 RBI and 93 runs scored. Those 93 runs are good for fourth-most in the NL with a month left to play.
Sep 1 - 12:49 AM

Kris Bryant went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and three runs scored in a lopsided win over the Phillies on Saturday.

Bryant hit one of the team's four homers against Phillies starter Ben Lively, taking him out for a solo dong in the fifth inning. His three runs gave him 86 runs scored on the year, seventh-most in the National League. The 25-year-old is batting .289/.405/.535 with 24 homers, 57 RBI and seven steals to go with those 86 runs.

Bryant took a pitch off his left hand in the ninth inning Tuesday, but X-rays turned up negative and it sounds like he could return for Thursday's series finale in Cincinnati. Tommy La Stella is starting at third base and batting sixth Wednesday versus Reds right-hander Asher Wojciechowski.
Aug 23 - 2:03 PM

Kris Bryant is not in the Cubs' lineup Sunday.

It's a rare day off for the slugger. Tommy La Stella will handle third base. Jason Heyward is also getting a breather, as the Cubs have Kyle Schwarber, Albert Almora and Jon Jay in the outfield.

Kris Bryant stayed hot with a double and a homer in the Cubs' 15-5 rout of the Reds on Monday.

Bryant doubled and scored in the bottom of the first inning and belted a two-run shot in the Cubs' five-run fourth inning, finishing 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored. He also drew a walk. The star third baseman is 26-for-59 (.441) with 11 RBI and 12 runs scored over his last 15 games. There aren't many other players you'd prefer on your fantasy roster for the stretch run.
