  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Sidelined to begin MiLB season

    Davis won't join Triple-A Iowa on Friday for the start of the minor-league season and will remain at the Cubs' spring facility while he recovers from a minor undisclosed injury, Tommy Birch of The Des Moines Register reports.

    Davis isn't expected to be headed for an extended absence, as Birch relays that the outfielder will stay in Arizona for about a week or two before reporting to Iowa. The 24-year-old was once viewed as one of the top prospects in the Cubs' farm system and was the MVP of the 2021 All-Star Futures Game, but an assortment of injuries has derailed his development over the past couple of seasons. Davis possesses a spot on the Cubs' 40-man roster, but his big-league debut doesn't appear to be imminent.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Back in action in Cactus League

    Davis (concussion) went 1-for-2 with a double, a run and an RBI while playing seven innings in right field in Friday's 3-2 loss to the White Sox in Cactus League play.

    Davis was placed in concussion protocol after taking a pitch to his helmet Feb. 27. He was reassigned to minor-league camp March 8 and will miss out on the Cubs' Opening Day roster, but his inclusion in the lineup Friday at least confirms that he's cleared the protocol. The outfield prospect is likely to report to Triple-A Iowa to begin the campaign.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Cut from major-league camp

    Davis (concussion) was optioned to Triple-A Iowa by the Cubs on Friday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Davis suffered a concussion in his third Cactus League game and had not yet returned to action, although he has resumed activities. The 24-year-old was a prized prospect a couple years ago but has struggled to stay healthy and productive the last two seasons.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Beginning activities

    Davis (concussion) will begin physical activities Monday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Davis is in concussion protocol after being hit in the helmet by a pitch last week but is ready to ease back into workouts. The 24-year-old is slated to begin the season back in the minors.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: In concussion protocol

    Cubs manager Craig Counsell said Davis is in concussion protocol after being hit on the helmet by a pitch Tuesday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

    Counsell indicated that Davis has a "mild" concussion, and the outfielder will be shut down from activities until he clears the protocol. The 24-year-old former top prospect has had terrible injury luck during his professional career.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Goes deep Saturday

    Davis went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and three RBI in Saturday's Cactus League game against the Giants.

    Davis has struggled the last few seasons in the minors, which has diminished his prospect standing. The 24-year-old outfielder still has some upside from a power perspective, and while he'll likely start this year with Triple-A Iowa, he could push toward making his MLB debut this summer if he performs well at a lower level.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Out six weeks

    Davis underwent core muscle surgery earlier this week and is out for at least six weeks, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    The 23-year-old outfield prospect was placed on the injured list at Triple-A Iowa on June 9 after experiencing discomfort after a swing. Now, Davis will be sidelined until at least early August as he recovers from his procedure. Davis was slashing .197/.316/.299 with 20 RBI through 187 plate appearances prior to getting injured.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Lands on Triple-A IL

    Triple-A Iowa placed Davis on its 7-day injured list Wednesday with an unspecified injury, Tommy Birch of The Des Moines Register reports.

    According to Birch, Davis' move to the IL is described precautionary after he experienced some discomfort on a swing in Tuesday's game against St. Paul. The 23-year-old outfielder has gotten off to a lackluster start to the season for Iowa, slashing .197/.316/.299 with three home runs and nine stolen bases across 187 plate appearances.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Sent down to Triple-A

    Davis was optioned to Triple-A Iowa by the Cubs on Friday.

    Davis is finally over the back problems that plagued him last season, but he'll need to knock off some rust in the minors. The ceiling remains high for the 23-year-old.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Over last year's back issues

    Davis said Friday that he's over the back issues that plagued him last year, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    Davis even stated a desire to crack the Cubs' Opening Day roster, though that seems highly unlikely to actually happen. The 23-year-old outfield prospect struggled to a .180/.299/.298 slash line over just 214 minor-league plate appearances in 2022 and then had to bow out of the Arizona Fall League after only five games. He'll almost certainly be ticketed for Triple-A Iowa to begin the 2023 campaign, and his .260/.375/.494 slash line across three levels in 2021 offers a glimpse at his upside if he is fully healthy again.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Added to 40-man

    The Cubs selected Davis' contract from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday.

    After flying through the Cubs' farm system in 2021, Davis' progress slowed down in 2022, as he slashed just .191/.322/.319 over 174 plate appearances with Triple-A Iowa. Back issues plagued him all season, and he underwent surgery in June to address the issue only for them to return during the Fall League. Davis will need to bounce back in a major way in order to earn the first major-league promotion of his career.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Dealing with more back issues

    Davis is battling back tightness and is expected to miss the remainder of the Arizona Fall League, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

    Davis dealt with back issues through the regular season and underwent surgery to help address the issue in early June. He returned in mid-August but slashed just .168/.309/.297 the rest of the way. The Fall League was supposed to give him the chance to make up for lost development time, but the recurrence of his back problems cut that short after just five games.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Ready to rejoin Triple-A club

    Davis (back) completed his rehab assignment at High-A South Bend and will be reinstated from Triple-A Iowa's 7-day injured list Tuesday, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.

    Davis' next appearance with Iowa will be his first with the affiliate since May 3, after he spent nearly four months recovering from a back injury that ultimately required surgery in June. Since beginning his rehab assignment earlier this month, Davis has struggled to the tune of a .135/.200/.216 slash line and 32.5 percent strikeout rate over 10 games between stops at High-A and the rookie-level Arizona Complex League, but he's at least emerged from those contests without any health-related setbacks. The Cubs are hopeful that Davis' bat will come around over the final few weeks of the minor-league season, which could serve as a springboard to him pushing for a spot on the big club's Opening Day roster next spring. Davis could also pick up some additional at-bats in Fall Instructional League to make up for the time he lost while working his way back from surgery over the summer.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Moves rehab to High-A

    Davis (back) shifted his rehab assignment to High-A South Bend on Tuesday and went 1-for-5 with three strikeouts while playing 10 innings in left field in a 2-1 win over West Michigan.

    Davis, who is still on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Iowa after undergoing back surgery nearly three months ago, is expected to spend only a few games with South Bend before returning to the Cubs' top affiliate. According to Patrick Mooney of The Athletic, the Cubs plan on having Davis head to the Arizona Fall League in October to make up for the at-bats he lost during the regular season while recovering from surgery.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Starts up rehab assignment

    Davis (back) served as the designated hitter Monday in the first game of his rehab assignment in the Arizona Complex League, going 0-for-3 with a walk, a run and three strikeouts.

    Davis' appearance in the ACL was his first at any level since May 3 after he underwent back surgery in early June. Due to the nature of his procedure, Davis could be eased back into action as a DH for his first few appearances in Arizona before eventually picking up work in the outfield. Assuming he avoids any setbacks during the rehab assignment, Davis should make his return to the Triple-A Iowa lineup within the next few weeks.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Could return in 2-to-3 weeks

    Davis (back) could return to action in 2-to-3 weeks, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Davis has been sidelined since undergoing back surgery in early June, but he was hoping to return to action this season and will apparently have a chance to do so.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Aiming for 2022 return

    Davis (back) is scheduled to begin a running progression next week and remains optimistic that he'll be able to return from Triple-A Iowa's 7-day injured list before the end of the 2022 season, Tommy Birch of The Des Moines Register reports.

    The 2021 All-Star Futures Game MVP will miss out on the event next weekend while he continues to recover from the back surgery he underwent June 2, but he's still hopeful to salvage something from what has otherwise been a lost season. Davis said he plans to start up baseball activities "shortly after" he begins his running program, and a potential target date for a return to game action could come into focus several weeks later if his back responds well to him gradually increasing the intensity of his workouts. While playing through the back discomfort prior to undergoing surgery, Davis had struggled to a .195 average while striking out in 34.1 percent of his plate appearances for Iowa this season.

  • Cubs' Brennen Davis: Undergoes back surgery

    Davis underwent back surgery Thursday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Davis had dealt with lower-back discomfort since spring training, and he ultimately landed on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Iowa on May 12. It's not yet clear whether 22-year-old will return prior to the end of the regular season, but he's expected to make a full recovery as he isn't dealing with any structural damage or disc issues. Davis appeared to be in the mix to make his major-league debut at some point this summer, but he'll likely have to wait to join the big-league club until at least 2023 due to his procedure.
