Cubs trade rumor: Nationals interested in Kris Bryant

In fact, the Nationals have made an initial inquiry to the Cubs about trading for third baseman Kris Bryant, sources say.

Bryant is among the top position player trade candidates in baseball this winter, and industry sources said Monday that there’s a better chance of the Cubs trading Bryant than the Indians dealing shortstop Francisco Lindor.

The article goes on to note that any KB trade might have to wait until the third-base free-agent market (Anthony Rendon and Josh Donaldson) is settled, and also for the final decision on Bryant’s service-time grievance.
