Bryant went 3-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in Sunday's 13-12 loss to the Reds.
Bryant has been rolling lately with four home runs in his last six games, giving him a team-high nine long balls for the season. The 29-year-old started this game in left field with Joc Pederson (wrist) on the injured list and ended up shifting to center when Ian Happ (head) left the contest following an outfield collision. Bryant is of course usually stationed at third base, but it looks like he could play more in the outfield in the short term due to Chicago's injury situation.
Bryant went 2-for-3 with two walks, a double, a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Friday's 8-6 loss to the Reds.
He took Wade Miley deep in the first inning, but things quickly went downhill for Chicago after that despite Bryant's efforts. The 29-year-old's performance capped a huge April that saw him hit .322 with seven homers and 19 RBI in 24 games.
Bryant went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's win over Atlanta.
Bryant is rolling right now, as he's batting .310 with a superb 1.011 OPS and 17 RBI through 23 games. After a down 2020 campaign, it looks like Bryant is back to his old form, and fantasy managers should enjoy the ride.
Bryant (biceps) is starting Wednesday's game against Atlanta.
Bryant sat out Tuesday's game due to a right biceps injury that he had apparently dealt with for about a week. However, he'll start in left field and bat fourth Wednesday.
Bryant's absence from the lineup for Tuesday's game in Atlanta is due to a right biceps injury, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.
Per Maddie Lee of NBC Sports Chicago, Bryant has been dealing with the issue for about a week and is available off the bench, so the Cubs don't appear to be overly concerned about it. Whether he'll return for Wednesday's game remains to be seen.
Bryant is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Atlanta.
Bryant will sit for just the second time this season. He's done everything he can to prove that his struggles last year were nothing more than a temporary blip, as he's hitting .289/.375/.618 with six homers in 21 games. David Bote starts at third base Tuesday, with Ian Happ sliding from center field to left, the spot Bryant had occupied in the previous four games.
Bryant went 1-for-4 with a walk and a grand slam in Monday's 8-7 loss to Atlanta.
Bryant took Charlie Morton deep in the third inning with the bases loaded, giving him six home runs and 16 RBI though 21 games. It's been a very promising start for the 2016 NL MVP, who is looking to rebound from a subpar 2020 campaign. If he keeps up this level of production, Bryant could push for his second MVP trophy by season's end.
Bryant went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Friday's 15-2 win over the Brewers.
Bryant had three of the Cubs' 17 hits in the big win, and the 29-year-old has been hot at the plate recently. Over his past 10 games, Bryant is slashing .351/.419/.649 and he's pushed his season OPS up to a robust 1.041. He's also been playing a bit more often in the outfield lately, but Bryant figures to see plenty of time at third base moving forward as well.
Bryant went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Thursday's 4-3, 10-inning win over the Mets.
Bryant was caught trying to steal second base in the contest, but otherwise it was a productive night for the 29-year-old, who made his second straight start in right field in place of the slumping Jason Heyward. Bryant has been heating up after a slow start of his own, and he's been able to bump his OPS up to .997, which would actually be the best mark of his MLB career if it holds up.
Bryant went 1-for-3 with a single, two walks and three runs scored in Tuesday's 16-4 win over the Mets.
Bryant has been locked in at the plate lately, as he's slashed .400/.500/.800 with two home runs, four RBI, seven runs scored and a 3:1 BB:K over his last four games. After dealing with injuries for most of the 2020 season, Bryant looks fully healthy once again and has returned to being a difficult out for opposing pitchers.
Bryant went 3-for-5 with two home runs, four RBI and three runs scored in Saturday's win over the Braves.
Bryant had a monster day at the plate and launched a pair of two-run shots -- in the fifth inning off Jesse Biddle and in the sixth off Jacob Webb. The star third baseman had been held hitless in three of his last four games prior to Saturday's contest, but he bounced back in a big way. He now has five homers on the season and four of those have come during his last seven games.
Bryant isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Brewers.
Bryant went 2-for-7 with a home run, two RBI and two runs to begin the series against Milwaukee. However, David Bote will take his place at the hot corner Wednesday while Eric Sogard starts at second base.
Bryant went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Monday's loss to the Brewers.
The Cubs had just four hits in the 6-3 loss, and Bryant supplied half of them, including his third home run of the season. Many of the Cubs' regulars are struggling and the team is sitting at 4-6, but Bryant has started to get going at the plate, as he now has a 1.022 OPS through 10 games.
Bryant went 1-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a walk in Saturday's loss against the Pirates.
Bryant plated one of the team's two runs with an RBI double in the first inning that scored Ian Happ, but he didn't do much the rest of the way. The star third baseman has hit safely in three of his last four games and has two homers already in 32 plate appearances.
Bryant went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Pirates.
It's been a slow start to the season for the Cubs' stars, but Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez all went deep in Thursday's win. It was Bryant's second long ball of the year, and if all those can players get going, they should help each other post strong counting stats.
Bryant went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Pirates.
Batting cleanup in Sunday's series finale, Bryant had a productive day at the plate. The 29-year-old had a down year in 2020, posting a .206/.293/.351 slash line, but he also dealt with a variety of injuries as he played in 34 of Chicago's 60 games. If Bryant stays healthy, he could be in store for a bounceback 2021 campaign.
Bryant went 1-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Pirates.
His third-inning blast off Tyler Anderson gave the Cubs a 3-1 lead, and was Bryant's first hit of the year. The 29-year-old is coming off an awful 2020, but with free agency looming he has plenty of incentive to rebound.
Bryant is batting .222 with a .641 OPS and no home runs through eight Cactus League games.
Bryant's spring to date has been very similar to his 2020 Cactus League performance, when he posted a .641 OPS and no homers across 13 games. The 29-year-old would go on to have a down season last year, so the hope is history doesn't repeat itself in 2021. The good news is Bryant seems to be healthy after dealing with a handful of injuries in 2020.
Bryant said he's had conversations with manager David Ross about taking a more aggressive approach at the plate, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
The Cubs overall saw 4.11 pitches per plate appearance last season, which was third in the majors, and Bryant was right around that mark. The 29-year-old's numbers were down across the board during the shortened slate as he dealt with a handful of injuries and never really got on track. Perhaps a cleaner bill of health, along with a more aggressive approach, will help Bryant rebound in 2021.
Bryant will primarily play third base this season but will also get some time in the outfield, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Bryant has consistently played in the outfield during his career, including four appearances in left during the shortened 2020 season, and that trend should continue in 2021. He made a career-high 69 outfield appearances back in 2016 but probably won't approach that number unless there's an injury to Joc Pederson, Ian Happ or Jason Heyward, who should generally fill the outfield from left to right. Still, having eligibility at multiple positions can enhance Bryant's fantasy appeal.
