It looks like the newest Red Sox prospect is very happy to be coming to Boston.
It didn’t take long for Bryant to express his excitement, and he took to his personal Twitter account to share a full-circle moment of sorts in his baseball career.
“Thankful for what the Cubs have done for me these last couple years,” the 22-year-old said after the transaction was announced. “But growing up a die hard Sox fan this is a VERY exciting twist to my journey. Excited for whatâs to come with Red Sox.”
The product of Jacksonville University, born in Daytona Beach, Fla., Bryant comes to the Red Sox after recording a 1.27 ERA in his first year of professional baseball within the Cubs.
In 12 relief appearances between Rookie-level Arizona League Cubs and Short-A Eugene, Bryant gave up three earned runs and no homers in 21 1/3 innings pitched with 24 strikeouts.
