Kris Bryant still has room to improve

BY foxsports • June 14, 2015

 

Kris Bryant struckout four times in his Major League Baseball debut.

Obviously he has improved since then, showing he belongs in the big leagues, but strikeouts have still been a bit of a problem for the Cubs young superstar.

And it's not just the strikeouts, it's the timing of them.

"The Cubs rookie third baseman entered Saturday having struck out three times in 23 plate appearances with runners in scoring position and two outs (13 percent), and was batting .412 in those situations. In his other at-bats, Bryant has struck out 32 percent of the time (64 K's in 200 plate appearances)," Cubs.com wrote.

However, as the article noted, it's not all bad.

Bryant does lead the Cubs with a .391 batting average with runners in scoring position.
