Kris Bryant has joined the Cubs for today’s game at Wrigley Field against San Diego.
Theo Epstein said, ‘He’s joined the club a bit earlier than planned but, with the injury to Olt, the time is now.
Kris Bryant will rekindle relationships with the MLB club, after a very successful Cactus League stint this past Spring, and a few games of the 2015 season in the Minors at Iowa getting ready for the call up .
Real expectations? Well, we can cite a game where he went 0 for 5 or, we can cite his overall performance knowing full well Kris Bryant will be a powerhouse.
He made his first appearance at the plate for Chicago at Wrigley with a strikeout, and went hitless for his Wrigley debut. Bryant figured in with some positive defensive results.
With or, without Bryant the Cubs are treading over new trails this season, only a half game out of first in the NL – Central. Milwaukee is brewing in the cellar for now.
San Diego beat the Cubs by 1 on Friday, 5-4. Get the details on the
