CHICAGO -- Kris Bryant hit his fourth home run in five games with Triple-A Iowa on Monday, and now is 4-for-18. That's right -- all of his hits have been home runs.
Bryant, promoted to Triple-A last Thursday after dominating at Double-A Tennessee, where he did hit more than home runs, has gotten a lot of attention, including from Cubs manager Rick Renteria.
"As an organization, and probably as a city, everybody's happy the guys who have been touted and have been coming through the system are performing well," Renteria said Monday. "There might be a hiccup here or there, but I'm glad all the guys in our system continue to chip away at their development and are getting better. They make us an organization better and someday, they'll make us all as Cubs better."
Bryant, the second player taken overall in the 2013 First-Year Player Draft, batted .355 with 22 home runs and 58 RBIs in 68 games at Tennessee.
