DES MOINES, IOWA — Tennessee Smokies’ outfielder Brennen Davis has been called up to Triple-A Iowa to finish out the minor league season.
The Chicago Cubs No. 1 minor league prospect, according to MLB.com, spent over half of this season in Double-A Tennessee after being called up on June 1.
Davis missed the beginning of the season due to being hit with a pitch in spring training, and then he played eight games for High-A South Bend, but once he arrived in Tennessee, he let his presence be known.
The 21-year old second round pick in the 2018 Major League Draft hit .252 in 76 games, and he also recorded 13 home runs and 76 RBIs with the Smokies.
Davis is ranked as the 14th-best prospect in all of baseball according to MLB.com, and now he is one step away from the Majors as the minor league season comes to an end.
The MVP of the MLB Futures Game earlier this summer did go 0-4 in his last game with Tennessee on Sunday versus Chattanooga, but he will earn extra at-bats in the coming weeks as Tennessee only has one series left, while the Iowa Cubs have three more series before their season ends.
Davis is expected to be in Omaha this week for the Cubs (46-68) series at the Omaha Storm Chasers, and he is the 16th player currently on the Iowa Cubs roster that has played for Tennessee this season.
