Rotoworld:

08.09: Kris Bryant (foot) is dealing with plantar fasciitis. (Bryant is currently in a walking boot and there isn't a timetable for his
return to baseball activity. Bryant inked a massive seven-year, $182
million contract with the Rockies last offseason and has been limited to
just 42 games this season due to injury. It's a tough blow for fantasy
managers who may have been stashing him for potential late-season
return. There's a chance Bryant doesn't come back this season.)

Halfway:

Kris Bryant (3B) COL - Jul. 05
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=12938

Bryant went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Dodgers.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Bryant got the Rockies back within two runs with his sixth-inning blast, which was his first homer of the year. The lack of power has been mostly due to injury issues that have left the 30-year-old limited to 24 games this year. He's showing signs of heating up lately, going 9-for-21 (.429) in his last five games. Overall, Bryant is slashing .293/.350/.380 with six RBI, 16 runs scored and five doubles this season.

Kris Bryant (3B) COL - Jun. 24
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=12938

Bryant (back) won't return from the injured list during the Rockies' three-game series in Minnesota this weekend, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The 30-year-old is 0-for-6 with three strikeouts through his first two rehab appearances with Triple-A Albuquerque, and he'll remain with the affiliate through the weekend before potentially rejoining the big-league club next week. Manager Bud Black said Bryant hasn't suffered a setback in his recovery, and the team just wants to provide him "a few more games to get ready."

I have the '20 and '22 editions, and each contains an archive of the publication's Top 100 going eight years back.  Trout appears at No. 3 in 2012, Grichuk not at all 2012-14.  From his stats Grichuk appears to have missed time with injuries in 2010-11, during which time Trout put him in his rear view mirror.

After reading LynchMob's fascinating post under Grichuk, I went looking for my old Minor League Analysts.

To my dismay, I only found one. 2015.

I'm not sure the Analyst was published as far back as the Grichuk/Trout draft, but any doubts about the value of prospect rankings disappear when you see 2015.

The HQ 100: Top Prospects of 2015

1. Kris Bryant

2. Byron Buxton

3. Carlos Correa

4. Addison Russel

5. Corey Seager

Four out of five ain't bad.

What about the grades?

Bryant 9A

Buxton 9A

Correa 9B

Russell 9C

Seager 9D

Bryant and Buxton were deemed safest bets to be elite players. Seager the riskiest.

I reminded myself of this 2014 evaluation by, um, me:

I saw him a couple times in Arizona, where the stats were clearly very good and everybody raved. What I saw reminded me a little of when I first saw Domonic Brown in Arizona some years ago. Everyone going on about his talent, but his swing seemed kind of long and vulnerable to good pitches.

Struck out nearly 1 in 3 AB in A+ last year, which is evidence of that, and similar in the pitching poor AFL. He may end up a big league regular, perhaps even an All Star at some point, but he's not on the fast track.

This is more negative than Bryant deserves for what he's done, but is more relevant for what he's going to do. He could have another all star year, but it wouldn't be a shock if he didn't.

Go Rockies. (Because I lived there a few years ago I get their promo. Not good enough.)

Fangraphs has a coherent discussion: https://blogs.fangraphs.com/kris-bryants-enormous-payday-highlights-questions-about-the-rockies/

Which does not explain the Rockies. Because the Rockies seem to have made another terrible deal. And for what purpose? 

If it's winning, we can test that.

If it's developing, how does Bryant help?

I guess I had the numbers wrong.  Still seems like a weird signing. But maybe the Rockies are on the cusp of a division title.

That would be - 8 years, 260 million for Arenado ...  7 years, 182 million for Bryant.

I see the difference.

Wasn't Arenado miffed with what he thought were unkept promises to spend to add additional players so to better compete? Bryant has already won a championship so maybe they figure he'll be satisfied with getting paid for putting up numbers and having his Octobers free.
