Colorado Rockies outfielder Kris Bryant is not in Tuesday's starting lineup against the visiting Reds.
It's certainly interesting to see Bryant missing from the start lineup with rookie left-hander Brandon Williamson making his MLB debut tonight at Coors Field. Bryant has made a career raking lefties as he sports a .298 average, .272 isolated power, and a .969 OPS for his career against southpaw pitching while Williamson has been rocked for a 6.62 ERA and 1.85 HR/9 in eight Triple-A starts this season.
Bryant went 2-for-5 with three RBI, including a solo homer in the fourth inning, as the Rockies cruised to a 13-6 win over the Mets on Sunday.
Bryant's performance was a key factor in the Rockies' offensive explosion, as he drove in three runs and scored one himself. The outfielder has been a consistent contributor for Colorado this season, with a .300 batting average and five home runs through 32 games. While his strikeout rate remains high at 18.3%, he has also shown a good eye at the plate with a walk rate of 10.2%. Overall, Bryant's strong performance on Sunday helped the Rockies to a much-needed win and continued his solid start to the season.
