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. Jun 27 - 10:49 PM

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 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."

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.

Kris Bryant (ankle) is back in the Cubs' lineup Sunday.

Bryant didn't play Friday and wasn't in Saturday's lineup before the game was rained out after spraining his right ankle Thursday. He's feeling better now, though, and is in left field and batting third Sunday. The Cubs have Tommy La Stella at third base and Jorge Soler on the bench.
May 1 - 11:40 AM

Cubs manager Joe Maddon hasn't decided if Kris Bryant (ankle) will play on Sunday.

Bryant sprained his ankle Thursday and wasn't in the starting lineup on Friday, though he was on deck to pinch-hit. "I'll debate whether to play him or not," said Maddon. "If we don't start him for sure, he'll be able to come off the bench." Javier Baez filled in at third base Friday and would likely do so the same Sunday if Bryant sits.
