8/12 Bryant promoted to Daytona
Kris Bryant, the Cubs’ No. 1 pick in this year’s First-Year Player Draft, will join Class A Daytona. Bryant had been playing for Boise in the Northwest League, and was batting .354 overall. The third baseman was riding a 15-game hitting streak, which he extended with hits in both games of Sunday’s doubleheader. Daytona is a season-high 14 games over .500, and headed for the playoffs in the Florida State League.
