Hitter of the Week

Brennen Davis

  • OF (Triple-A Iowa Cubs) - .357/.609/1.214 4 HR, 5 RBI, 9 R, 5/5 BB/K

Brennen Davis just had the best statistical week of any Chicago Cubs prospect this season. In fact, his slugging percentage was almost as high as some of the best performers we’ve seen this season had for their OPS. 

Long-term Cubs fans don’t need the background information on Davis because he’s been breaking your hearts for nearly half a decade. He was a top prospect before the 2020, 2021, 2022 and even 2023 seasons. However, injuries nearly completely derailed his career.

His story isn’t dissimilar from Miguel Amaya’s, who is currently in his second season with the big league club after injuries and prospect fatigue nearly ended his career. In an ideal world, Davis' story will have a similar ending.

There is legitimate superstar potential under the hood with Davis. Earlier this week we discussed the possibility of trading Davis to get him a change of scenery, but after a week like this, that thought may need to be reconsidered.
