Bryant, 23, batted .275 with 26 home runs and 99 RBI. His 6.0 wins above replacement was the fourth highest posted by a rookie in the past 10 years. Only Mike Trout (10.8 in 2012), Troy Tulowitzki (6.8 in 2007) and Jason Heyward (6.4 in 2010) had better rookie seasons.

According to ESPN, no Cubs rookie had hit 25 home runs since Billy Williams did it in 1961.

The Cubs put together this tribute video to honor Bryant’s historic season:
