Advanced home workouts aren't what they used to be.

Kris Bryant (3B) CHI-N - May. 23

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=741013

Bryant is utilizing technology in his home batting practice sessions to track data such as launch angle, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Bryant purchased a portable camera and radar unit from the technology company Rapsodo in December. The slugger is able to use the device to track launch angle, exit speed, exit direction and distance of ball hit during sessions at his Las Vegas batting cage. Bryant is entering a critical season with the Cubs, whenever it's able to begin. The 28-year-old is set to become a free agent after the 2021 season and was subject to some trade speculation this past offseason. Bryant no doubt wants to hit the ground running when play resumes, and his advanced home workouts could help him do so.

One more prediction from Jim Bowden today at The Athletic (I'm sure I've left a few teams out).

Northeast Division

Chicago Cubs
The Cubs starting rotation and bullpen will determine if they can contend. They certainly still have one of the best offensive nuclei led by Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, Javier Báez and Willson Contreras. I still think the most exciting time for Cubs fans this year will be the trade deadline … no matter when that gets moved to.

A very small adjustment!

I think the main thing is, we all expect him to be anchored to first base no matter where he bats.

108 runs and only 77 RBI to go along with 31 HR/28 doubles already looks a lot like a leadoff hitter line.

I don't think that much, actually. Last year he had about two thirds of his AB in the two hole, and one third batting third. In both cases, he scored about a third more runs than he drove in runs. Maybe he could have done better last year, but that's probably what he's going to do this year leading off (if he sticks with it). 

Peter Kreutzer Rotoman

Will bat leadoff this year.

Peter's projection needs just a small adjustment.

We've been hearing abt him for so long you look and say it's hard to believe he's only 28, then you look at his career and say it's hard to believe he's already 28.

Kris Bryant (3B) CHI-N - Feb. 15

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=737307

Bryant reported to Cubs' camp Saturday and said he had "no hard feelings" toward the team after losing a contract grievance last month, NBC 5 Chicago reports.


ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: In addition to the grievance, in which Bryant argued for an additional year of service time, the star third baseman was also the subject of trade rumors in the offseason. "There's definitely no hard feelings, so let's just put that narrative to bed," Bryant said. "I completely respect this organization and everything they've done for me and for my family." The 28-year-old is saying the right things as he heads into his sixth year in Chicago.

Just read that he lost his service time grievance.  No surprise, but an injustice in my opinion.  Maybe now he will be traded more swiftly!  He certainly gained more trade value.
