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.

Kris Bryant went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Fine overall performance from Bryant, who is now working on a 10-game hitting streak. He homered in the ninth inning for cosmetic effect in what ended as a 7-2 Cubs win. For the campaign as a whole, the reigning NL MVP is slashing .294/.405/.530 with 21 homers, 52 RBI and seven steals in 109 games played. He has collected multiple hits in five of his last six games, including three straight three-hit showings.

Kris Bryant posted a pair of singles, a double and a walk with two RBI in Saturday's loss in Arizona.

Bryant has hit safely in nine straight games, going 15-for-35 (.429) with two doubles, four RBI and four runs scored to raise his average from .275 to .289 just since Aug. 2. He'll look to reach double digits with his hit streak Sunday against RHP Zack Godley in the series finale.

Kris Bryant is still receiving treatment on his sprained left pinkie.

Bryant suffered the injury sliding into third base against the Braves on July 19. He's been able to play through it, though the injury has sapped him of his usual power. "It's brutal," said Bryant. "Every day, it swells up. It's actually kind of annoying to go in the training room every day to do all this work just to feel good." Bryant has hit .357 over 42 at-bats this month, so obviously the injury isn't having too big of an impact.

Kris Bryant went 2-for-4 with a double, a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

Bryant's solo homer in the eighth inning gave the Cubs a little breathing room in what had been a 3-2 game prior to the dinger. The reigning NL MVP has turned in a fine season to date, though it will not be enough to allow for a repeat of the award barring a sizzling final two months. For the campaign as a whole, Bryant is hitting .279/.396/.524 with 20 homers, 45 RBI and seven steals in 97 games played.

Bryant is hitting .276/.395/.513 with 19 homers, 44 RBI, 65 runs scored and seven steals on the season.

Kris Bryant was ejected from Tuesday's game against the White Sox for arguing balls and strikes.

Kris Bryant ripped two hits Saturday in the Cubs’ come-from-behind win over the Cardinals.

Bryant looked good as new in his return from a sprained pinkie. The 25-year-old singled in the second inning and later tied the score at two with a base knock off Matt Bowman in the eighth. Bryant scored the game-winning run later in the frame on an RBI double by Anthony Rizzo. Despite getting off to a relatively slow start this season, Bryant’s .930 OPS is almost identical to the one he posted when he won National League MVP last year.

Expect further updates on Bryant's availability for this weekend's series against the Cards on Thursday or Friday.

X-rays turned up negative and he's considered day-to-day for now, but there will probably be more scans to come. Bryant injured the finger Wednesday on a slide into the cleat of Braves third baseman Johan Camargo. Tommy La Stella replaced him in the Cubs' lineup in the bottom of the first inning.
