Kris Bryant reportedly likely to leave Cubs when free agency hits

Don't shoot the messenger but Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant might not be returning to the Cubs after his contract ends after the 2021 season.

Cubs management tried to lock him down long-term with a massive extension worth over $200 million during the offseason but Bryant and super-agent Scott Boras reportedly turned it down.

According to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times on 670 The Score's Mully and Haugh show, Bryant will likely take his talents elsewhere according to the following tweet.


This is a really early report and obviously, things can change quickly in the world of sports.

In 2018, Bryant hit .272 with 13 homers, 52 RBIs, and an on-base percentage of .374.

Look for Bryant to have a huge year in 2019 if he returns 100 percent healthy from his shoulder issues. Let's all enjoy the next three years with Bryant before worrying about him hitting free agency.
