Curious how Cubs top prospect Kris Bryant did this season against Dodgers prospect Zach Lee? It's easy to check: head over to Bryant's player page, available via MiLB.com's auto-suggest search bar, and then click on "Batter vs. Pitcher" under career stats, then select Albuquerque -- Bryant, hitting .341 this season, is 1-for-1 with a three-run homer off Lee, the Dodgers' No. 6 prospect. You'll notice, Bryant has also gone deep against three other Isotopes pitchers this season... ouch.
