It had been, like, two days since Kris Bryant received a major honor. So it was about time.
This one is from MLB.com’s MLB Pipeline (like, the prospecting dudes at MLB.com, Jonathan Mayo and Jim Callis), and it has Kris Bryant as the Hitting Prospect of the Year for 2014. Pirates pitching prospect Tyler Glasnow took home the pitching honors.
Bryant’s selection on the positional side was unanimous, which I think has pretty much been the case for every award he’s received. It’s another plaudit in a season full of them. Now we just await Spring Training so that we can watch and adore again.
