DENVER — The Colorado Rockies and Kris Bryant have agreed to a 7-year, $182 million deal, according to several reports.

ESPN's Jeff Pasan was one of the first to break the news, and our partners at the Denver Post confirmed the deal.

Bryant rose to stardom during his time with the Chicago Cubs, leading the team to its first World Series victory since 1908. He was named the National League Rookie of the Year in 2015 and MVP for the National League in 2016.

He began the 2021 season with the Cubs but was traded to the San Francisco Giants, slashing .265/.353/.481 between the two teams, according to the Denver Post.

Fans flooded social media with mixed reactions after the news broke. Some are excited for the star power Bryant will bring with him, while others wonder if persistent injuries will limit his talent. Since 2017, he has struggled with shoulder, knee, ankle and hand injuries, according to ESPN.

The Rockies nor Bryant have confirmed the news as of Wednesday evening.
