Cubs | Junior Lake hitting cleanup

Tue, 05 May 2015 16:55:49 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is hitting cleanup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Tyler Lyons Tuesday, May 5. 1B Anthony Rizzo is hitting second, with 3B Kris Bryant moving up a spot into third in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($3,900, 7.8% of cap), Rizzo ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) and Bryant ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) should all be looked at as strong FantasyScore plays this evening while Lyons make his season debut in the Red Birds' rotation tonight.

Cubs | Kris Bryant drawing walks

Tue, 05 May 2015 13:05:45 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant has 16 walks in 16 games to start his major league career, and he's tied for sixth in the National League in that department. His .458 on-base percentage is tied for third in the NL.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is surely holding his own in the majors while hitting .291 (16-for-55) with 11 RBI, but his fantasy owners are left desiring more from the super prospect, as he has yet to hit his first major league home run. That'll come eventually, and he remains a solid daily play because he continues to get on base consistently.

Cubs | Kris Bryant in minor funk

Mon, 04 May 2015 13:29:38 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant is just 6-for-22 (.188 batting average) over his past nine games. He was hitting .409 through his first six major league games.

Fantasy Tip: Peaks and valleys will be the norm for Bryant ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) this season. What is more surprising is he hasn't hit a home run. All said, he is currently has seven runs, 11 RBI, two stolen bases and a .278/.418/.370 slash line. Add a little pop at the expense of his on-base percentage going forward, and fantasy owners should be pleased with his production. Bryant has the makings of a high-risk, high-reward play all season long for FantasyScore players.

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.
