(CBS) It didn’t take long for the Cubs’ top pick in the 2013 draft to be promoted.

The team promoted third baseman Kris Bryant from short-season Single-A Boise to Single-A Dayton.

Bryant was in the midst of a 15-game hitting streak before the promotion. He hit .354 with four home runs and 16 RBIs during his brief time in Boise.

The 21-year-old went 5-for-6 with one double, one triple and three RBIs in a doubleheader Sunday against Vancouver.

Over the course of the longest hitting streak of his young career, Bryant went .415 (22-for-53.)
