Cubs fans got a sneak preview at the future on Tuesday when Jorge Soler, Javier Baez, and Kris Bryant hit back-to-back-to-back home runs. Well, Bryant went mashing again today against the Angels by going 3-for-4 with two home runs and a double. By the way, the first home run went over the head of Will Ferrell, who was playing center field at the time.

Here’s home run No. 1…

Bryant led the minors with 43 home runs last season while posting a 1.098 OPS and now he has four homers this spring. You can obviously make the case that the 23-year-old deserves to be with the Cubs on Opening Day from a talent perspective, but the expectation is that he’ll head down to the minors for a couple of weeks to delay his free agency by a year. Unfortunately, that’s the system we have right now.
