WATCH: Kris Bryant does perfect impersonation of Craig Kimbrel

CHICAGO — With the arrival of closer Craig Kimbrel to the Chicago Cubs looming, the Cubs' social-media team had a little fun with some Kimbrel-themed content on Wednesday. The Cubs' official Twitter account tweeted out a video of Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant doing a spot-on impersonation of the Cubs' prized addition to the bullpen.

Perfectly imitating Kimbrel's trademark mound pose, which features Kimbrel pitching out of the stretch in a crouched position with his right arm hanging straight out to the side, Bryant showed off his mimicking skills in front of the camera. Bryant added that, if he had a baseball in his hand, a signature Kimbrel fastball would be the perfect way to cap off the impersonation. Perhaps, one of Kimbrel's filthy fastballs will be thrown by Kimbrel himself in a Cubs game in the near future.
