The Chicago Cubs top prospect Kris Bryant is already ML ready according to his agent and the team. Bryant, who drove in 43-home runs while serving Double and Triple-A duty last season. Although there is talk of the Cubbies “hiding” Bryant until May or June, MLBPA director Tony Clark eluded that doing so takes away from the spirit of the game.
“We have always (believed) – and will continue to believe – that it’s in everyone’s best interests to have the best players playing at any particular time,” Clark said. “Any rules that are in place that some may be using against the spirit of how they may have been designed, we don’t believe (that’s) in anyone’s best interest – the fans, or anyone that loves our games, the players, or even the clubs for that matter. We will continue – as we always have – to monitor those types of scenarios and situations in the hopes that everybody does what’s best for the game.”
