Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant hit a home run in his first game since being promoted to Triple-A Iowa.
Fantasy Tip: After crushing the ball for Double-A Tennessee, Bryant picked up right where he left off with his new team. Theo Epstein recently said that he doesn't expect Bryant to reach the majors this season, but that could change if he keeps launching home runs. In the meantime, he at least needs to be owned in all keeper leagues and NL-only formats.

Chicago Cubs executive Theo Epstein said he doesn't see 3B Kris Bryant playing in the majors this season.
Fantasy Tip: Just because Epstein says Bryant won't come up this year doesn't mean the Cubs won't change their minds. However, this will temper some of the excitement and predictions that Bryant will be up with the team soon, perhaps this summer. He should still be owned in all keeper leagues and stashed in NL-only leagues.

The Chicago Cubs moved 3B Kris Bryant from Double-A Tennessee to Triple-A Iowa Wednesday, June 18. Bryant was leading the Southern League in batting average (.355), home runs (22), RBIs (58), on-base percentage (.458) and slugging percentage (.702). Bryant was selected second overall in last June's draft. He won the Home Run Derby at the Southern League All-Star Game earlier this week.
Fantasy Tip: Bryant is easily the Cubs' most alluring prospect in the minors, and you can see why. He has sped through the minor league system and has dominated at every level. If he continues to rake at Class AAA, it might not be long before he shows his face at Wrigley. He should already be owned in all NL-only and keeper formats, and it's coming time to stash him in the rest of leagues.

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant is hitting .355 with 22 homers and 58 RBIs in 248 at-bats at Double-A Tennessee.
Fantasy Tip: The club wants Bryant to get as much seasoning as possible, but he could come up and contribute right now.

Chicago Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said 3B Kris Bryant's promotion is still in the distance.
Fantasy Tip: Bryant is one of the top prospects in baseball in short time. He has tantalizing power and should immediately be owned in all leagues when he's called up. For now, only stash him in deeper leagues.

Chicago Cubs 3B Mike Olt had three hits, including two homers, with three RBI Wednesday, March 12. The vision problems he was having last year have cleared up. He's hitting .333 this spring.
Fantasy Tip: Olt is a not-so-dark horse to earn frequent, if not full-time, at-bats at third base for the Cubbies. Luis Valbuena is the platoon majority option. Emilio Bonifacio may get time there versus southpaws. Super-prospect Kris Bryant may make his way there late in the season. But the formerly touted Texas Rangers tyke could deliver post-hype power for fantasy prospectors now that he can actually see pitches.
