The Cubs have continued their fire sale by trading away former-MVP and World Series champion Kris Bryant. San Francisco has acquired Bryant, 29-years-old for a package that is yet unknown at time of writing. The trade came just minutes before the trade deadline officially ended.
ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported the news via Twitter on Friday afternoon.

Bryant was yet another member of the core 2016 World Series-champion Cubs that has been traded away at the deadline. His teammates, Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez, were also traded to the Yankees and Mets, respectively.
San Francisco is one of the most surprising teams in the MLB. They sit atop the NL West, above the defending World Series champion Dodgers and heavy-hitting Padres. The Giants have now added a former MVP, rookie of the year and four-time All-Star (including a 2021 selection).
Bryant is hitting .267 this season 18 home runs and 51 RBI this year. Given his pedigree and ability to get hot in a hurry and carry a team, he will likely start at third base for the Giants right away.
