(670 The Score) Cubs star Kris Bryant knew well that a trade was likely coming Friday, but the moment still hit him hard.

In Washington D.C. as the Cubs prepared to play the Nationals in the evening, Bryant was emotional in the dugout after taking a phone call that presumably informed him of the day’s big news – he had been traded to the San Francisco Giants in exchange for two prospects, ending his tenure in Chicago.

Bryant debut for the Cubs in 2015, winning the National League Rookie of the Year award before earning MVP honors and leading the team to a World Series championship the next season. He’s a four-time All-Star.
