Kris Bryant went 3-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Reds.
The multi-hit game was just Bryant's second of the month and his first since September 3. It's not exactly how the 24-year-old would like to be hitting as the postseason approaches, but Tuesday shows that it only takes one night for him to make his presence felt. Bryant now has 35 doubles to go with 37 homers, 97 RBI, 116 runs and eight steals on the year. He should be just fine come October. Sep 20 - 11:42 PM

Kris Bryant is not in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

Manager Joe Maddon hinted Thursday that he could bench all of his regulars after the club clinched the National League Central, and he meant it. It's backups everywhere for the Cubbies, with the full lineup reading as follows: Matt Szczur RF, Javier Baez SS, Jorge Soler LF, Willson Contreras C, Chris Coghlan 1B, Alberto Almora CF, Tommy La Stella 3B, Munenori Kawasaki 2B.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon hinted Thursday that the Cubs could bench all of their regular starters for Friday's game.

The Cubs will clinch the National League Central Division title on Thursday night if the Cardinals lose to the Giants. Maddon said that no matter the outcome of that game, to expect a lineup without most regulars on Friday. Fantasy owners should be prepared and have alternative options available.

Kris Bryant belted a two-run homer in the fifth inning on Friday, propelling the Cubs to a 2-0 victory over the Astros.

Bryant's blast off of Astros starter Joe Musgrove provided more than enough run support for Jon Lester who was brilliant. Bryant finished the night 1-for-3 plus a walk, raising his already impressive season slash to .302/.398/.577 to go with 37 home runs and 93 RBI. He'll certainly find himself squarely in the discussion for National League MVP honors at season's end.

Kris Bryant is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Brewers.

It looks to be a routine day of rest. Tommy La Stella is at third base and Jorge Soler is in left.
Sep 6 - 4:15 PM

Kris Bryant hit his 36th homer Wednesday in the Cubs' 6-5 win over the Pirates.

Bryant also singled and walked. He's hitting .418 with 10 homers in his last 23 games, raising his overall OPS from .916 to .993. It's why he's the clear MVP favorite at the moment.

Kris Bryant went 2-for-3 plus a walk as the Cubs were shut out by the Dodgers on Sunday.

As a club, the Cubs were only able to muster four hits on the afternoon, with Bryant and Jason Heyward each tallying two. Bryant's double was the lone extra-base knock. He has been a machine at the plate this season, slashing an outstanding .305/.398/.588 with a National League-leading 35 home runs and 89 RBI.
Aug 28 - 8:04 PM

Kris Bryant homered in the eighth and 10th innings to guide the Cubs past the Dodgers on Friday.

Bryant hit a solo homer off Joe Blanton in the eighth and added the decisive two-run shot off Adam Liberatore in the 10th. He's taken over the NL lead in homers with 35, and he leads the majors with 107 runs scored.
Aug 27 - 2:08 AM

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.
Aug 18 - 6:01 PM

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.
Aug 9 - 10:44 PM

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.
Jul 28 - 12:34 AM

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.
