We are officially one week from pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training, and it appears the Chicago Cubs trade rumors have quieted down for now. Kris Bryant has been at the center of these reports all offseason, but he will head into camp as the team’s third baseman.

Like most people, Bryant probably wants to leave 2020 in his rearview mirror. The former MVP battled injuries and slashed a career-worst .206/.293/.351 with four home runs and 11 RBI in 34 games.

Bryant recently spoke out on his struggles and the trade rumors, explaining the game was not as “fun” as it used to be.

I think many people took this the wrong way, but the reality is Bryant speaking the truth about things that affected him off the field. It’s not to say he can’t find that same passion.
