Kris Bryant continued his assault on National League pitching Saturday, going 2-for-5 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Rockies.
This time, Bryant picked on Rockies rookie starter Jeff Hoffman, who was making his major league debut. Bryant took the rookie deep for a three-run shot in the fifth inning, Bryant's 31st homer of the year. That's best in the league, and the 24-year-old is now hitting .300/.393/.568 with 83 RBI, 98 runs scored and eight steals. A year removed from winning National League Rookie of the Year, Bryant appears to have his sights set higher in 2016. Aug 21 - 12:46 AM

Kris Bryant went 5-for-5 with two homers, a double and five RBI to lead the Cubs past the Brewers 9-6 on Thursday.

Have yourself a day, Kris. The two homers put him at an even 30 for the season, and his OPS jumped to .956, which is nearly a match for Anthony Rizzo's .961. Those two are in the running for NL MVP honors, assuming that voters don't dismiss both because the Cubs could have won the NL Central without either. Bryant has the WAR edge, by virtue of his fine defense at tougher positions than first base. Rizzo has the RBI edge, largely because he hits behind Bryant. Daniel Murphy has the "I'm clearly the best player on my team, which isn't the Cubs" edge.

Kris Bryant hit his 28th home run of the year in a win over the Angels on Tuesday.

Bryant jumped on a hanging Jered Weaver slider and hit it onto Waveland Avenue for a solo dong in the fifth inning. Bryant's 28 homers are second-most in the National League, and his 84 runs scored are most in the NL. The 24-year-old is hitting .284/.385/.547 with 70 RBI and seven steals as well.

Kris Bryant connected for his 26th home run of the season on Wednesday.

He went 1-for-3 with two runs scored on the night. The solo home run came off Anthony Ranaudo in the sixth inning to provide the first of eight Cubs runs in the game. He is batting .283/.377/.550 with 81 runs and 66 RBI.

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.
Jul 5 - 7:27 PM

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.
Jul 5 - 10:46 AM

Cubs manager Joe Maddon expects Kris Bryant (leg) to play on Tuesday.

Bryant left Monday's game after a collision with teammate Albert Almora, Jr., but fortunately he only suffered a contusion on his lower left leg. It's not a major concern.
Jul 4 - 6:15 PM

Kris Bryant exited Monday's game against the Reds with a contusion on his lower left leg.

Bryant suffered the injury in a collision with teammate Albert Almora, Jr. Fortunately, it doesn't appear to be serious. Consider him day-to-day.
Jul 4 - 4:27 PM

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.
Jul 4 - 4:00 PM

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.
Jul 2 - 12:32 AM

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.
Jun 30 - 11:50 PM

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.
Jun 26 - 4:55 PM

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.
