Chicago Cubs: Kris Bryant is the Cubs’ greatest rookie

Who’s Next?

The BWAA likes to hone in on teams and award back-to-back ROY awards. Heck, the Los Angeles Dodgers won the award five years in a row (1992-96).

Could the Cubs see back-to-back ROYs (last done with Williams and Hubbs in 1961-62)?

It’s unlikely, as the Cubs have a lot of talent at the major league level and few holes to fill. The openings they currently have in center field and the starting rotation aren’t likely to be addressed through current prospects.

Players like Albert Almora are not yet ready to hit the majors. While others like Gleyber Torres are blocked at the major league level.

But, you never know… after all, this Bryant kid came out of nowhere. Right?
