August was an incredible month for Kris, one where he has firmly entrenched himself in the MVP race. He slashed an incredible .383/.472/.748 with a .403 BABIP and 219 wRC+. What?! So that means that Kris Bryant was 119% better than the league average player when it comes to weighted runs created in the month of August. That’s pretty amazing!
Congrats to Kris!
