Giants ramp up for West race, get Cubs’ Bryant


The San Francisco Giants have reached a deal to acquire star third baseman Kris Bryant from the Chicago Cubs, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Friday.

Bryant was drafted by the Cubs in 2013, winning Rookie of the Year and MVP in consecutive seasons. He helped the team break its 108-year championship drought back in 2016.

The move capped a massive housecleaning by the Cubs prior to the trade deadline, with the team trading away Anthony Rizzo, Craig Kimbrel and Javier Baez, among others.
