Kris Bryant – Offense

On Saturday against the San Francisco Giants, Bryant launched his first home run since July 27, his 15th of the season – driving in a trio of runs in the process. With that in mind, he now leads all big league rookies with 67 runs batted in, despite his recent struggles.

Since belting seven home runs in the month of May, the Chicago third baseman has hit just eight between the subsequent three months, while seeing his slash-line fall in the process.

As you can see, it’s been a prototypical rookie season for Bryant, as in he’s struggled and excelled at times. As far as the Cubs go, they’ll need their face of the franchise to pick it back up down the stretch as they battle for one of the league’s two wild card spots.
