Kris Bryant Just Photobombed Craig Kimbrel Trying to Talk About His Spring Debut

Chicago Cubs

Craig Kimbrel just made his Spring Training debut – first of the season, but also first ever with the Cubs – and I was trying to focus on his discussion of how he was feeling, but Kris Bryant poked his head out and wrecked it.

And by wrecked it, I mean made everyone chuckle. Good get by Gordon Wittenmyer:

Bryant is turning into quite the ham this Spring, eh? I love it.

Oh, the important stuff: Kimbrel felt good and looked comfortable out there. RESULTS DON’T MATTER, but he did give up a homer.

Mostly, for our purposes, this is what matters:

Kimbrel says he expects to add on from here, and was just kinda throwing nice and easy this time.

So, fingers crossed that he follows his normal build, and we’re seeing at least SOME 97-98 by early April. That’s when you could reasonably project his normal 98-99 mph in the summer.
