Ranked second among the Cubs' top 20 prospects, Bryant led all college players last season with 31 home runs at the University of San Diego, and was the Cubs' first-round pick in June. He moved up quickly, playing two games for the Mesa Rookie League team, then went to short-season Boise and finished at high A Daytona, which won the Florida State League championship.
The third baseman finished last year in the Arizona Fall League, where he was named Most Valuable Player.
