Ross: Cubs 'committed' to Kris Bryant as leadoff hitter in 2020

Chicago Cubs third baseman / outfield Kris Bryant will bat in the leadoff spot in 2020.

What It Means:

According to manager David Ross, the Cubs are "committed" to Bryant being their leadoff man in 2020. A move up Chicago's batting order should boost Bryant's production after rebounding with a strong season in 2019.

In 543 at-bats last season, Bryant produced a .282 average with 31 home runs and 77 RBI.
