While it’s never a lock that any prospect, once promoted, will stay in the big leagues in perpetuity, I’d hazard a guess that Kris Bryant is as safe as they come.
And, if that’s the case, now that Bryant is coming up to the big leagues, he finished his minor league career the way he played the rest of it: by hitting bombs.
First, there was an almost bomb that was robbed at the wall:
But, you know Kris Bryant. He wasn’t going to go out like that. So he simply took another ball the other direction, and even further:
Bryant finishes his early stint at AAA Iowa with a .321/.364/.679 line, almost matching his career minor league line of .327/.426/.667. His was easily the most ridiculously impressive minor league career I ever saw, and I’m not sure we’ll see it matched from end to end for quite a while.
Of course, if you’re looking for a bat to come close, Kyle Schwarber’s current line at AA Tennessee is .333/.467/.750, and his career minor league line so far is a Bryant-like .343/.429/.639.
