Cubs prospect Kris Bryant is generally considered a top-two prospect in baseball, as most outlets that do midseason prospect rankings had him and Byron Buxton 1-2 in some order. He's also leading all professional baseball players with 40 homers this regular season. He had 22 bombs in 68 Double-A games before his promotion to Triple-A and Thursday night hit his 18th homer with Iowa, in his 54th Triple-A game.

Here it is:

Flair for the dramatic? That's a walk-off, extra-inning homer for his 40th of the year.

In 158 career minor-league games since being drafted second overall in 2013, Bryant is hitting .336/.431/.685 with 47 doubles, 49 homers and 135 RBI. Oh, and 16 stolen bases in 19 attempts, too. He's currently playing third base, though many believe he'll be shifted to a corner outfield spot down the road.

I think I'll mark down my 2015 NL Rookie of the Year prediction right now.
