Kris Bryant: AFL MVP, Because Obviously

Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects

kris bryant cubsIf you destroy all comers in a league, you’re likely to land the MVP award. With apologies to Mike Trout, that is.

Today, Chicago Cubs third base prospect Kris Bryant was named the MVP of the Arizona Fall League. His six homers and 1.184 OPS paced the league (he was tops in slugging at .727, and fourth in OBP at .457).

Bryant’s Solar Sox are playing as I type in the AFL Championship Game, but, win or lose, it was a successful month in Arizona for virtually all of the Cubs’ prospects who participated. More on that in a bit. For now, suffice it to say that Bryant is the MVP, and his legend grows.
