Cubs considering moving Kris Bryant to right field


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) The Cubs have had internal discussions about transitioning prospect Kris Bryant from third base to right field, according to CSN Chicago. However, the talks have not progressed to making that move just yet.

"He can do it," general manager Jed Hoyer said. "He played center in college, and he’s played right. He feels good out there. The biggest focus for him right now is he’s working on his defense. He is almost 6-6, and with that the fundamentals of playing third base are more challenging.

"In the future, I would never say never that we wouldn’t put him out there. But right now, our focus is third."


Kris Bryant hopes to stick at third base in majors


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant has 24 errors in 117 career minor-league games at third base, but he believes he's getting better defensively and would like to stay at the hot corner as a major-leaguer, Comcast SportsNet Chicago reports.

"I think my defense has gotten a whole lot better," Bryant said. "Coming into the year, there was a lot of talk about where I'd be playing -- outfield, third base. But I think I've come in and worked really hard to stay at third base and I sure hope to stay there. But if the time comes where I need to move a position, I'm all for it."

Bryant participated in the Futures game at Target Field Sunday, drawing a walk and striking out twice in four plate appearances. The 2013 first-round pick owns a share of the minor-league lead in home runs this year, hitting .346/.444/.701 with 31 home runs, 81 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 335 at-bats between Double-A Tennessee and Triple-A Iowa. Despite his excellent offensive numbers, Bryant isn't expected earn a call-up anytime soon.


GM: Kris Bryant likely won't be with Cubs in 2014


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2014) Cubs third base prospect Kris Bryant has been promoted to Triple-A and has already homered at that level, but that will probably be as far as he ascends this season, according to president of baseball operations Theo Epstein.

Epstein told ESPN that he doesn't "foresee" Bryant being elevated to the big league club at any point this year despite his tremendous numbers in the minors. Bryant boasts a .353/.455/.706 stat line at two levels combined in 2014 with 23 home runs.


Kris Bryant still has a ways to go


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/2014) Kris Bryant's promotion to Triple-A Iowa Wednesday is certainly a positive -- and yes, overdue -- step in his development. He was only leading the Southern League in just about every offensive category, batting .355 with 22 home runs and an 1.160 OPS at Double-A Tennessee.

But as I wrote in this week's Prospects Report, it may be his last promotion this year.

I go into the reasons in the column, but the Cubs have far more to lose than gain by rushing him to the big leagues for another last-place finish. And make no mistake: Regardless of how he performs at Triple-A, they would be rushing him. At this time a year ago, he hadn't even played a minor-league game.

Those who stash him in a standard mixed league are liable to be as disappointed as the those who stashed George Springer last season. In anything deeper, maybe you could afford to take a what-do-you-have-to-lose approach to that final roster spot, but when you're fighting for a playoff spot, you can't commit to playing the rest of the season a man down. And for a player just promoted to Triple-A, it would probably be a rest-of-season commitment.


Kris Bryant announces promotion to Triple-A


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) Cubs stud third base prospect Kris Bryant tweeted Wednesday that he has been promoted to Triple-A Iowa.

The 22-year-old Bryant was tearing it up at Double-A Tennessee. He had 22 home runs and 58 RBI in just 297 at-bats and owned an eye-popping stat line of .355/.458/.702. He did rack up 77 strikeouts.


Will we see Kris Bryant in the majors in 2014?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2014) If you took a gander at this week's Waiver Wire column, you saw that I'm confident Cubs third base prospect Kris Bryant will be in the majors this season. I know Cubs president Theo Epstein and general manager Jed Hoyer like for prospects to log heavy playing time at Triple-A before being promoted to the majors, but Bryant is proving he's no ordinary prospect.

If you are concerned about the Cubs not wanting to promote Bryant because of Super-2 status, I don't think that's a major factor at all, especially since clubs are locking up their top prospects with long-term deals. Surely, Bryant is going to be in that mix, so it basically comes down to when the Cubs feel he's ready.

The Cubs aren't built to contend this season and there's really no need to rush Bryant to the majors other than the fact they might want to see how he handles major-league pitching and drawing fans to the ballpark. Bryant is one of those players that can definitely sell seats. 

I feel a promotion to Triple-A is far more likely for Bryant in the near future than a jump to the majors, but I'm still hopeful we will see him in the majors later this season.


Kris Bryant continues to rake in minors


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2014) Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant continues to dominate the minors.

Bryant went 4 for 4, with a home run during Wednesday's game. Through 51 games, he leads the Southern League in eight different stat categories. Bryant is hitting .349, with 15 home runs in 186 at-bats. Despite his dominance, the team is expected to keep Bryant in the minors for the rest of the year.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Bryant is currently at Double-A, and should be called up to Triple-A before the season ends. There's a chance he'll be promoted to the majors this season, but will more likely compete for a starting job next spring.

Bryant is on the fast track to the majors after being selected second overall in last year's draft.
