Kris Bryant homered twice in four at-bats for Triple-A Iowa Sunday, and followed that up by going 1-for-2 with a solo-home run and two walks in Monday's afternoon game.
Bryant made his Triple-A PCL debut last Thursday and, already five games into his Triple-A career the Cubs top third base prospect already has four home runs. This should come as no surprise as Bryant still leads the Southern League (Double-A) in home runs even though he has not played there in almost a week. Not to mention he also won that leagues All-Star Home Run Derby before getting his call-up to the Iowa Cubs where, regardless of how well he hits, will likely remain there for the duration of the season as the team has no reason to rush him. He could force his way up with a strong showing, but it looks like he's a September call-up at best now.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Raisel Iglesias will start for the Reds on Sunday.
Iglesias has been used out of the bullpen twice since his last start 10 days ago, and has given up three earned runs in three innings in that time. That being said, Iglesias was fairly solid in his two starts this season, going 1-0 with a 2.77 ERA and a 9/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 13 innings pitched. Analysis: Brad Costilo
