Cubs 3B Kris Bryant delivers first dinger since July 4
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/24/15) Cubs rookie Kris Bryant didn't end his stretch Friday without a multi-hit game that has lasted since Independence Day. But he did do something he hadn't done since America celebrated its birthday.
That is, hit a home run.
Bryant blasted off against Phillies starter Jerome Williams in the third inning before making outs the rest of the afternoon. He is batting just .143 (7-for-49) over his last 13 games.

Bryant finishes the first half with 51 RBIs, though he did also cross the 100-strikeout threshold as well.

NL All-Star reserves, pitchers and Final Vote candidates revealed
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/6/15) The National League All Star reserves and pitchers were announced on Monday evening, and there was no room for the reigning National League MVP.
Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw was not selected for the All Star team, although he's one of five candidates to take the final spot on the roster in the Final Vote.
Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant made the team as an injury replacement for the Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton. Bryant is one of two rookies on the team, along with Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson.
The Pirates sent two starting pitchers to the All Star team for the first time since 1960. MLB wins leader Gerrit Cole and fellow Pittsburgh starter A.J. Burnett will both be making their first appearance.
National League reserves are:
Catchers: Yasmani Grandal, Dodgers; Yadier Molina, Cardinals
First basemen: Adrian Gonzalez, Dodgers; Anthony Rizzo, Cubs
Second basemen: DJ LeMahieu, Rockies; Joe Panik, Giants
Third basemen: Nolan Arenado, Rockies; Kris Bryant, Cubs
Shortstop: Brandon Crawford, Giants
Outfielders: Andrew McCutchen, Pirates; Joc Pederson, Dodgers; A.J. Pollock, Diamondbacks; Justin Upton, Padres
National League pitchers are:
Madison Bumgarner, Giants; A.J. Burnett, Pirates; Aroldis Chapman, Reds; RHP: Gerrit Cole, Pirates; Jacob deGrom, Mets; Zack Greinke, Dodgers; Mark Melancon, Pirates; Shelby Miller, Braves; Jonathan Papelbon, Phillies; Francisco Rodriguez, Brewers; Trevor Rosenthal, Cardinals; Max Scherzer, Nationals; Michael Wacha, Cardinals
The five candidates for the Final Vote are:
Johnny Cueto, Reds; Jeurys Familia, Mets; Carlos Martinez, Cardinals; Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers; Troy Tulowitzki, Rockies
|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.
