Chicago Cubs slugger Kris Bryant was ejected for the first time in his career on Tuesday afternoon for arguing balls and strikes after an inside pitch that he took for strike three.

The Cubs are upset with the umpire's strike zone through four innings as they have struck out 11 times already out of 12 at-bats.

He was also ejected one time in the minor leagues. Javy Baez has moved to third base in Bryant's spot.

Check out the video below.
