Kris Bryant makes impressive Cubs history


by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Cubs have been rolling lately as they defeated the Reds 9-0 on Saturday to win their 8th win in the last 10 games.

However, one of the most underrated things about the ballclub is the durability of some of the star players. Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant became the first Cubs player all-time to play 150 games in his first three seasons.

Bryant has been playing at such a high level since he entered the major leagues and has not been injury prone. In 2017, he is batting .296 with 29 homers, 73 RBI, and .410 on-base percentage. He is fifth in the National League in runs (111), third in walks (95) and seventh in OPS (.950).

He has shown his tremendous versatility with two starts at first base, two starts at left field, two starts in center field, seven starts in right field, and 143 starts at third base.

For his short career, he is batting .288 with 94 dingers, 274 RBI, and .388 on-base percentage.
