Kris Bryant was named as the winner of the NL MVP Award by the Baseball Writers Association of America on Thursday.
It was almost unanimous, as Byrant nabbed 29 out of the 30 first-place votes. Daniel Murphy got the other first-place vote and finished second in the balloting. Corey Seager was just behind him in third place. Bryant won the NL Rookie of the Year Award just one year ago and it hasn’t taken him long to emerge as one of the game’s best players. The 24-year-old made impressive strides with his plate discipline this past season while batting .292/.385/.554 with 30 homers, 102 RBI, eight stolen bases, and 121 runs scored. When talking about his value to the Cubs, one can’t ignore his willingness to play all over the field. While he mostly played third base, he also made starts between left field, right field, and first base. Bryant is the first Cubs player to win the NL MVP Award since Sammy Sosa did it in his 66-homer season in 1998. He likely has many more individual accolades ahead of him.

The BBWAA announced on Monday that Kris Bryant, Corey Seager and Daniel Murphy are finalists for the National League MVP award.

Both Seager and Murphy were marvelous this season, and Seager is at least going to win the NL Rookie of the Year award. The MVP is going to Bryant, though. The 24-year-old sported a .292/.385/.554 batting line, 39 home runs and 102 RBI for the World Series-winning Cubs.

Kris Bryant is hitting third again in Game 7 of the World Series on Wednesday against the Indians.

No changes from Tuesday's Game 6 lineup and that's understandable after they put nine runs on the board. Bryant went 4-for-5 with a homer on Tuesday and has gone deep in back-to-back games. The full lineup for Chicago in the decisive contest: Dexter Fowler CF, Kyle Schwarber DH, Bryant 3B, Anthony Rizzo 1B, Ben Zobrist LF, Addison Russell SS, Willson Contreras C, Jason Heyward RF, Javier Baez 2B. Kyle Hendricks will start for Chicago and Corey Kluber gets the ball for Cleveland.

Kris Bryant blasted his second home run of the postseason on Sunday, powering the Cubs to a 3-2 victory over the Indians in Game 5 of the World Series.

After the Cubs fell behind early 1-0, Bryant injected life back into the Cubs and into the crowd at Wrigley Field when he blasted a Trevor Bauer offering over the wall in left field to tie the game as he led off the fourth inning. The Cubs would rally to score another pair or runs in the inning, which proved to be enough in a 3-2 victory. Bryant finished the night 1-for-3 plus a walk and he also swiped a base. With the win, the Cubs live to fight another day as the series shifts back to Cleveland for Game 6 on Tuesday.

Kris Bryant was named the National League's winner of the Hank Aaron Award.

The Hank Aaron Award is handed out annually to the best offensive player in each league.

Kris Bryant ripped two hits in the Cubs' win over the Dodgers Saturday in Game 1 of the NLCS.

Bryant’s first hit of the night came on a fly to left field in the first inning. It looked like Howie Kendrick had it sized up against the ivy but instead it went over his head. Dexter Fowler came around to score all the way from first base as Bryant cruised into second for a double. Bryant also added a double in the eighth inning off Joe Blanton. The MVP frontrunner has continued his success in the playoffs, hitting .400 with a homer and four RBI across 20 postseason at-bats.

Kris Bryant delivered a game-tying, two-run homer in the ninth inning of the Cubs' extra-innings loss to the Giants.

The Giants took the lead with three runs in the bottom of the eight, but Bryant then took Sergio Romo deep with a homer that hit off the top of the left-field wall. He had three of the Cubs' 10 hits on the night, with Javier Baez being the only other Cub to notch a multi-hit effort. The likely National League MVP has five hits and three RBI in the first three games of the NLDS.

Kris Bryant provided an RBI single Saturday in the Cubs’ Game 2 victory over the Giants in the NLDS.

He dropped a single to right field that probably should have been caught by Hunter Pence. The single scored Willson Contreras from third base while extending the Cubs’ lead to 4-0. That was Bryant’s only hit of the night, though he narrowly missed a home run in the seventh inning on a ball that landed inches from the left-field foul pole. The Cubs will look to close out the Giants Monday in San Francisco.

Addison Russell, Jason Heyward, and Willson Contreras are also getting some rest for the Cubs as they look for their 101st victory of the season. Tommy La Stella will start at third base while Javier Baez will play second. Chris Coghlan and Ben Zobrist are in the corner outfield spots and Miguel Montero is behind the plate.

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.

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.

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

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.
