100 career home runs for Kris Bryant

Kris Bryant’s been a beast the moment he came into the league. The reigning National League MVP is known for his power, and it’s showing in his homer totals.

Bryant is 23 homers away from 100 for his career, and if he can manage to get it by season’s end he’ll join a very exclusive club. Only six players have ever hit 100 or more homers in their first three seasons.

ETA: Bryant’s on pace for around 35 home runs, so barring injury he’ll get it either by late September-early October or at the very beginning of next season.

Looking ahead: Bryant needs 75 more RBI to reach 300, which is certainly reachable this season.
