Kris Bryant will be a pro–after April 20
There is little doubt that Kris Bryant will be on the Chicago Cubs roster in 2015, it is simply a matter of when. We can all thank the term “business decision” for the possibility of Bryant not being on the Opening Day roster. While this is understandable, it is also quite irritating. But again, baseball is a business, and the Cubs will decide Bryant’s roster fate in the next week.
If Kris Bryant had decided not to come into Spring Training swinging for the fences, the Cubs would have been able to make an easy decision. But, that has not been the case. Bryant is like a real-life version of The Bigs video game, and he is swinging with max power and proficiency. When thinking about his performance in the Cactus League so far this spring, one word comes to mind–unstoppable.
If you aren’t a big baseball fan, or don’t care about the Cubs, you need to start paying attention to what is taking place in Arizona right now. In fact, I’m pretty sure that meteorologists in Arizona have announced a major heat wave this spring due to Kris Bryant’s hot bat.
Don’t believe me, take a look:
The Cubs 3B prospect is now trying his hand in a new position this spring–left field. This could be a ploy that the Cubs use to keep him in AAA for a few weeks, while he works on his outfield skills, or it could be a way to add some versatility to the lineup. I might be reading too much into this concept, but it is a business decision, so my opinion could be on point.
How does Bryant’s hot spring translate to fantasy baseball?
If you do not draft him for your team, then someone else will, and you will regret it for the next twenty-something weeks.
