Ozzie Guillen is a big Kris Bryant fan.

In fact, the former White Sox manager even went as far as saying the Cubs third baseman is his favorite player to watch right now.

"I love this guy, since the first day he was coming in," Guillen said Tuesday on Baseball Night in Chicago. "No matter how you look at it, besides a great player, he's a pro and that's more important.

"The way he goes about his business, the way he goes about his at-bats, everything is professional. He's just so good."

Even with Guillen being a White Sox guy at heart, you can't help but appreciate Bryant as a player and what he's accomplished already at the age of 26.

Bryant has won a World Series ring, an MVP award, and was Rookie of the Year. In four seasons, he has a .289/.391/.529 slash line with 96 homers and 282 RBIs.

Pretty solid accolades for a guy who still has his whole career ahead of him. So just how great could Bryant be?

"This kid has a chance to be one of the best players ever to wear that uniform if they let him," Guillen said.

A reminder that you can watch Baseball Night in Chicago every weeknight from Monday through Friday at 6:30 p.m. The new half-hour show will serve as the lead-in program for every 7:00 p.m. weeknight Cubs or White Sox game on NBC Sports Chicago this season.
