Bryant is entering his second season on the Rockies roster after signing a seven-year $182 million contract in the 2022 offseason. Bryant is a former MVP and World Series champion in 2016. Last season, he went back and forth on the team's injured list, dealing with back and foot injuries. Now, he is playing healthy and is starting to prove why the team gave him such a large contract.

Bryant currently has a .297 batting average followed by three home runs, 30 hits, and four doubles with an OPS of .786. Most notably, Bryant made headlines after hitting his first career home run at Coors Field as a member of the Rockies on April 17.

 Staying healthy, being a productive at-bat, and playing consistent defense from a former NL MVP is just what this young Rockies roster needs if they want to win in the future. Bryant knows what it takes to win a World Series and he knows how to lead by example. When he is playing well, the rest of the team will follow.
