Rockies to land Bryant for 7 years, $182M

The Rockies are poised to add a huge bat to their lineup in Kris Bryant, according to a report by MLB Network insider Jon Heyman. Colorado has reached a seven-year, $182 million deal with the former MVP third baseman, Heyman tweeted on Wednesday. The club has not confirmed the deal.

It was a season of transition for Bryant in 2021—he was traded from the only team he had ever known, the Cubs, to the Giants in July. The 2015 NL Rookie of the Year and ’16 MVP had a tough year in ’20, when he was sidelined by injury and hit just .206/.293/.351 with four homers in 147 plate appearances in the pandemic-shortened campaign.

But Bryant bounced back to put up solid numbers in ’21 despite being traded midseason, finishing with an .835 OPS and 25 homers in 144 games. He was a key contributor for the Giants down the stretch, helping San Francisco edge out the archrival Dodgers to become the first team other than Los Angeles to win the NL West in nine years.
