Brennen Davis, Double-A Tennessee (Cubs) — Three two-homer games from Top 100 games not enough for you? You're in luck, because the reigning Futures Game MVP hit liftoff twice in Tennessee's game against Rocket City. The Cubs' top prospect has done an excellent job since he was drafted of turning his raw talents into skills, and he's been especially hot in July. This month, the 21-year-old is hitting .345/.438/.818 with six home runs, and that doesn't even count the two he hit in Denver.

Hey - I started hyping him back in 2019 ... (under the Ben Davis thread):

"Time to start the clock on Brennan Davis.   Cubs had planned to start the 19 year old 2nd round draft pick in short season, but he showed enough progress in extended spring training that they jump started him a week ago into the low-A Midwestern League.  

Which hasn't been much of a challenge, as he's put up a 1.039 OPS after his first 9 games.

Yep - his dad is former NBA star Reggie Theus."

He's had a very steep learning curve - and he's handled it very well.  A mystery what we'll see this year once we start getting statistics on guys like him again, but a lot of room for optimism.

I had him as an R4 in the software, but after reading Keith Law at The Athletic, I'm changing it to R5.

R4 = good prospect, but not this year.

R5 = very good prospect -- star potential -- but not this year.

The very best prospects who are likely to make an impact this year = R1. In every self-respecting dynasty league they've been rostered, as Bill Russel would say, since the second grade.

Prospects who are likely to do something positive for your team this year = R2. And most of them are already taken in dynasty leagues.

Prospects who might play this year and are very unlikely to be of any help to you = R3. Lots of them are available.

With that, here's Keith Law.

51. Brennen Davis, OF, Chicago Cubs, Age: 21


Davis was the Cubs’ second-rounder in 2018, a two-sport athlete who
starred in basketball and baseball for Basha High School in Arizona, but
has turned out to be more advanced at the plate than most players who
split time across multiple sports. Davis has a balanced swing with good
extension, although it can get kind of long because he’s so lanky. He
showed solid plate discipline in his full-season debut in 2019, although
he was limited to 50 games when a finger injury effectively ended his
season that July, with more power than anticipated given how much room
he has left to fill out. He was a shortstop in high school but has
handled the move to center field well, showing enough range already to
project to stay there over the long term and even end up an
above-average to plus defender. He just needs reps, as with so many
players drafted in 2018-19 who haven’t gotten much playing time yet, but
has star upside between the OBP/power potential and his range in
center.

Notes:

Final 2020 Ranking: 90 
Tools: Hit: 50 | Power: 60 | Run: 60 | Fielding: 50 | Arm: 60 
Skinny: Davis is extremely tooled-up and, after playing basketball in high school, might be just beginning to tap into his abilities on the diamond.
