Cubs third base prospect Kris Bryant has been asked to work in the outfield during spring training.
The idea was formally presented to Bryant by manager Joe Maddon in their first meeting on Monday, though there have always been whispers that he could give a corner outfield spot a try. "I had my first meeting with Kris today," Maddon said. "He was very impressive and very mature for a kid of 23. He understands what he is doing really well. He is accepting of working in the outfield, very excepting of that." Bryant will still technically compete for the Opening Day third base job, but the Cubs plan to keep him at Triple-A Iowa for at least 21 days in order to gain an extra year of control. The top prospect could be promoted as soon as late April or early May and will take over either at third base or left field. Feb 23 - 11:16 PM
