Honorable Mentions

Brennen Davis

OF (Triple-A Iowa Cubs)

.429/.636/.857 1 HR, 2 R, 3 RBI, 4/2 BB/K

This is the ideal bounce-back week you want to see from Brennen Davis who began the season on the IL after a concussion ended his impressive Spring Training.

Davis is a player that has seen his prospect sheen wear off. He was a top prospect from 2020 until the beginning of last season, and that was primarily coming from his 2018 season, where he hit .305/.381/.525 over 50 games as a 19-year-old. 

He’s now 24, and in 2022, his slash line was .180/.299/.298, and in 2023, it only improved slightly to .201/.297/.307. That’s not good enough. 

However, if Davis is finally healthy then this may be the player he truly is. He was the MVP of the futures game not that long ago, and if he keeps putting weeks together like the one he just had, he could be playing in the majors sooner rather than later since he already has a spot on the 40-man roster.
