Kris Bryant is on the move.

After just one season with the Giants, the former National League MVP is leaving the West Coast. He won’t be going too far, though.

Bryant is staying put in the NL West division after signing a massive deal with the Colorado Rockies. The deal is reportedly worth an absurd $182 million spread out over a seven-year contract.

Bryant has All-Star potential, and the thin air of Coors Field could help increase his power numbers even more.

The corner infielder has smacked at least 25 long balls in five of his seven professional seasons. He won Rookie of the Year honors in 2015 then followed it up with an MVP season in 2016.

Still, the price tag seems a bit high, especially considering the fact that the Rockies just let two superstars walk due to their hefty asking prices.

Rockies Fans Are Confused About The Kris Bryant Signing

Some Rockies fans were questioning the move with the team passing up major deals for Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story, only to dish out over $180 million to Bryant.

We’ll see if the slugger can buck the naysayers in 2021. Fans will get their first look at Bryant in a Rockies uniform in just a few short weeks. Opening Day is set to kick off on April 7th.
