Kris Bryant Signing is Officially Official, and He’ll Be Introduced at Press Conference at 11am CT

Kris BryantThe Chicago Cubs’ top draft pick in 2013 – and top prospect, depending on whom you ask – will be introduced today at Wrigley Field after his signing is officially official.

Kris Bryant, a standout at San Diego this year, was taken second overall by the Cubs, and subsequently signed for $6.7 million. That’s a record for the new CBA era, and I’m sure the Cubs are thrilled to have him. Bryant is as good as a prospect can get before he takes his first professional swing.

Bryant will be part of a press conference starting at 11am CT at Wrigley, which you can follow on a live stream at CSN Chicago. He’s also going to take batting practice with the Cubs (today’s game is at 3:05pm CT), but I don’t yet know whether that part will be streamed. I’m sure we’ll get breathless updates on Twitter, if nothing else.

A number of additional Cubs signings – most of which we’ve already discussed – will be made officially official today, which is the signing deadline.
