Kris Bryant went 1-for-3 with an RBI triple in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

Bryant's compiled 286 at-bats since being called up early in the season. In those at-bats, he's already hit four triples, a great example of his shining blend of power and speed. He notched three-bagger No. 4 in the first inning of Sunday's contest with the White Sox. Bryant will now head to Cincinnati for Monday's Home Run Derby having smashed 12 actual homers to go with 51 RBI and a .269/.376/.472 triple-slash.

Kris Bryant struck out three times against White Sox starter Chris Sale in Saturday's loss.

The rookie phenom is posting a .269/.375/.466 triple-slash with 12 homers and 50 RBI across 283 at-bats this season, but Chris Sale made him look like the rookie that he is in fanning him three times. There's no shame in striking out against a pitcher of Sale's caliber and we're certain Bryant will recover from the sting soon enough. He'll be among the participants in Monday's Home Run Derby, where strikeouts and Chris Sale are not allowed.

The phenom has certainly shown some pop since his debut, hitting 12 homers through 74 games thus far.

This was Bryant's second multi-homer game of the season and he's now socked 12 dingers and driven in 49 runs over 70 games since being called up in late April. The rookie sports a .278/.381/.486 triple-slash and figures to be a front-runner for the NL Rookie of the Year award come the end of the season.
