3B Kris Bryant blasts two homers in Cubs' win
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(8/23/15) Kris Bryant was an offensive force for the red-hot Cubs Sunday, crushing two home runs and driving in three runs in Chicago's 9-3 rout of the Braves.
Bryant's two longballs gave him 19 on the season. He hit a 404-foot, two-run shot to right field in the first inning and then added a solo shot to center in the sixth.
Bryant, like most of the Cubs, has been productive in August, with five homers and 14 RBIs to go along with 24 hits in the month.

Cubs slugger Kris Bryant happy to learn from struggles
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/7/15) Cubs rookie Kris Bryant isn't happy he has been mired in the first slump of his career. But he is turning it into a positive in his mind.
Bryant is hitting just .162 with two home runs in 21 games since the All-Star break.
"I wouldn't really want to come out my first year and dominate," he told the Chicago Tribune. "You want to keep getting better. To come out and domiante your first year, I don't think you'd learn too much from it. ... I'm learning a lot from the struggles. At the same time, I'm ready to get out of it."
Bryant might be doing just that with a five-game hitting streak, though he has no multi-hit games since July 27.
Cubs' Kris Bryant to avoid head-first slides following Sunday's scare
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/3/15) After a scary play at second base almost left him with a head injury on Sunday, Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant says he will give up head-first sliding. Bryant slid into second base in the fifth inning of Sunday's win over the Brewers, and was immediately taken out of the game with diziness after crashing into shortstop Jean Segura.
He was able to return to the lineup on Monday, but he said he will no long employ the use of a head-first slide.
"I have only one head, only one life," Bryant said per the Chicago Tribune. "There's nothing really to joke about with that. So we're taking this very seriously.
"It's instinct. I think that was the hardest I've run. I run very hard every time and looking back, I think I'll be sliding feet first."
|2014 summary: Kris Bryant showed he was ready for the upper minors after getting drafted as the second overall pick the previous summer in the MLB amateur draft. Earning the MiLBY Award for Top Offensive Player and hitting more home runs (43) than any other minor leaguer, Bryant did everything short of getting promoted to the Cubs. Splitting his time between Double-A Tennessee and Triple-A Iowa, Bryant did more than bash home runs, batting .325 and stealing 15 bases.|
Playing time status: Bryant will almost certainly spend some time with the Cubs; the only question is when he will arrive. A midseason debut seems like a worst-case scenario, and when he does get promoted, he is expected to serve as the Cubs' regular third baseman.
2015 outlook: Even if Bryant doesn't spend the full season up in the majors, he is worth drafting in standard mixed leagues for the portion that he'll play. The middle rounds are not too early to stake your claim for the Rookie of the Year candidate.
