Cubs | Kris Bryant homerless

Sat, 02 May 2015 14:19:13 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant hasn't hit a home run in his first 13 games and 59 plate appearances.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) will eventually get untracked. MLB.com reporter Carrie Muskat points out Billy Williams took 79 at-bats and 29 games to hit his first homer, and he turned out fine. Bryant is up to stay barring a massive slump and is doing fine.

Cubs | Kris Bryant in center field

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 07:28:42 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B/OF Kris Bryant is hitting cleanup and playing center field Thursday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: This just adds to his versatility and keeps him on the field. At $4,400 (8.8% of your cap), he's a midrange third baseman on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Kris Bryant off to good start

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 11:47:26 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant had two more hits and two more RBI Tuesday, April 22, and he has eight hits and six RBI in his first five major league games, making him only the third player in team history with at least that many hits and RBI in the first five games of his career.

Fantasy Tip: After a disappointing debut in which he struck out three times last Friday, Bryant ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has delivered on his prospect hype, minus the home runs. At his current FantasyScore price, Bryant is an excellent value play worth daily consideration. Look to get him into your daily lineups Wednesday against Pittsburgh Pirates starter Vance Worley.

Cubs | Kris Bryant drives in three

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 22:35:55 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant had a tiebreaking two-run double Monday, April 20, against the Pittsburgh Pirates, and he finished with three hits and three RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: After a poor debut Bryant is picking up the pace and living up to the hype, hitting at a .429 clip with four RBIs during the early days of his career. At $4,400 (or 8.8% of cap) he is a decent mid-level play.

Cubs | Kris Bryant has forgettable debut

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 16:13:04 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in his major league debut against the San Diego Padres Friday, April 17. He was hitting cleanup and starting at third base. Bryant said he had only three hours of sleep before his debut Friday. He was hitting .321 with three home runs and 10 RBI in 28 at-bats with Triple-A Iowa before his call-up. Cubs executive Theo Epstein said Bryant wouldn't have been brought up had 3B Mike Olt (wrist) not landed on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) looked overmatched and may have been pressing in his MLB debut Friday. If you had been stashing him in standard fantasy leagues, you'll want him in your starting lineups immediately. At FantasyScore, you may want to hold off and let him get his feet wet in the bigs first. A matchup against Padres starter Tyson Ross tomorrow could be another tough day for the youngster.

Cubs | Kris Bryant hitting cleanup

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 07:46:54 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant was recalled from Triple-A Iowa Friday, April 17, and is hitting cleanup against the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant enters the fold with possibly the most hype since Bryce Harper came up in 2012. Give him a game or two to get his feet wet on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Kris Bryant to be called up Friday

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 18:36:08 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant will be called up Friday, April 17. The Cubs will begin a home series against the San Diego Padres Friday, with RHP James Shields expected to start the series opener for the Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant hit .333 with two home runs in 29 plate appearances through just six games for Class AAA Iowa. Bryant should be owned in every league and will be a popular play in FantasyScore right away. After a jaw-dropping spring training run, there seems to be little reason to not invest in Bryant immediately, but owners should be looking for lesser owned assets in GPP games.

Cubs | Kris Bryant promotion coming Friday?

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:27:40 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant is hitting .333 in six minor league games with Triple-A Iowa with two home runs to start the year. The first day he can be promoted to the majors so that the Cubs can pick up an extra year of service time on him would be Friday, April 17. 3B Mike Olt (wrist) is dealing with an injured right wrist and 2B Tommy La Stella (rib cage) just landed on the disabled list. Cubs third basemen are hitting a combined .125 with a .472 OPS and one extra-base hit.

Fantasy Tip: It would not be a shock to see Bryant called up at the end of this week for offensive reinforcement in Chicago. He's a popular pick as the National League Rookie of the Year in 2015, and he has heaps of upside and monster power potential. He'll be a popular play at FantasyScore when he arrives on the scene.

Cubs | Tommy La Stella headed for DL?

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 16:41:09 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Tommy La Stella (side), who hasn't played since last Wednesday because of a sore right side, could be headed for the disabled list. That could prompt the Cubs to promote 3B Kris Bryant from Triple-A Iowa. "They just started, though. We're trying to get him into a good rhythm down there. But we'll see. Obviously his development is a hugely important factor and the needs of the big league team as well," president Theo Epstein said. Bryant has hit four home runs in the last two games at Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant currently is unavailable at FantasyScore, because he's still in the minors. He should already be owned in all fantasy baseball leagues. Once Bryant is in the bigs, which could be at the end of this week, he'll likely be a popular FantasyScore play for his monstrous power upside.

Cubs | Kris Bryant stays hot in Class AAA

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 05:23:36 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant hit a home run, a double and drove in three RBI for Triple-A Iowa Saturday, April 11.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Bryant to join the Cubs sooner than later, and potentially as early as Friday, April 17. While there are no guarantees it will be that soon, those who paid the price for the coveted slugger should be ready to insert Bryant into their lineups immediately. Make sure to check his FantasyScore price tag when he is recalled, too.
