Kris Bryant signs massive seven-year deal with Rockies


by - Senior Editor -

Former Chicago Cubs third baseman has signed a seven-year, $182 million contract with the Colorado Rockies, according to ESPN.

The deal includes a full no-trade clause and is pending a physical.

The Phillies and Mets were two other teams that were reportedly in the mix for Bryant's services.

Bryant spent seven seasons in Chicago, hitting .279 with 160 home runs, 465 RBIs, and 564 runs scored — accumulating the 2015 NL Rookie of the Year award, the 2016 NL MVP award, four all-star appearances, and being a cornerstone on the curse-breaking 2016 World Series team, all while playing six of the eight fielding positions.

His defensive versatility, elite baserunning, and prowess at the plate made him an attractive free agent.

Best of luck to Bryant in Colorado, and congratulations on the huge contract.
