  • Kris Bryant struck out all four times up against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
    Advice: Bryant has five career four-strikeout games, two of which have come in the last week. He's still batting a fine .289 since returning from the disabled list, but 24 strikeouts and one homer in 59 at-bats suggest that he's not quite right just yet.
  • Kris Bryant went 2-for-3 with a homer and walk in a victory over the Diamondbacks on Monday.
    Advice: Bryant stays hot, and his solo homer off of Randall Delgado is the 12th of the season for the former MVP in 92 games. While he's hit for a high average, this is the first homer for Bryant since he came off the disabled list with his shoulder injury, and the first since July 20. Expect to see Bryant to continue to get stronger as the season finishes, and put a few more balls over the fence over these final two weeks.
  • Kris Bryany continued his hot-hitting in Thursday's victory over the Nationals, going 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored.
    Advice: It's the second straight multi-hit effort for Bryant who is now hitting .325 (13-for-40) in 12 games since returning from the disabled list, though he has no homers and just three RBI in that time. Power production is a big concern for players coming back from shoulder injuries, so it'll be important for fantasy owners to monitor his progress over the next few weeks.
  • Kris Bryant went 2-for-3 and drove in a run during a loss to the Brewers on Wednesday.
    Advice: He was the only Cub to get multiple hits in the defeat. He plated the team's only run with a double in the fifth inning that scored Tommy La Stella. Bryant has missed a lot of action this year due to a shoulder injury and hasn't performed up to his normal level when able to play. He is batting .277/.378/.466 with 11 home runs and 47 RBI in 87 games.
  • Kris Bryant went 1-for-3 with an RBI sacrifice fly in the Cubs' loss to the Brewers on Monday.
    Advice: Bryant drilled a one-out double, his 24th of the year, off Brewers starter Wade Miley in the first inning and lifted a game-tying RBI sacrifice fly to left field, plating Willson Contreras from third base, in the fifth inning. It's been a lost campaign for the 26-year-old slugger, who has been limited to only 85 games due to injury this season. He's hitting .277/.379/.467 with 51 runs scored, 11 homers, 46 RBI and a pair of stolen bases in 391 plate appearances.
