Brennen Davis Strokes Two Bombs, Named Futures Game MVP

To kickoff All-Star week, the MLB put on their edition of the 2021 Sirius/XM Futures Game.

Every year, promising and rising young players travel to the All-Star game’s host city and put on a show for the fans, giving everyone a glimpse into baseball’s future.

Sunday was no different in Denver, in the friendly confines of home run hitting Coors Field.

Cubs prospect Brennen Davis showed out with two long dingers into the thin air and and scenic background of the pristine Rocky Mountains.

 

For his efforts, the power hitting Davis earned Futures Game MVP honors, helping the National League squad to an 8-3 win.

Point blank, Davis was the star of stars on Sunday at Coors Field.

His first bomb traveled 428 feet, and put the National Futures ahead 6-0.

Davis wasn’t satisfied with that and he sent another moonshot in his next at-bat.

To say he opened some eyes with those homers is an understatement, as he made a huge splash on one of the game’s biggest stages.

 

Davis is the No.2 prospect in the Cubs farm system and fans can see why they’re so much anticipation and excitement about the possibilities with him in the lineup for years to come.

Davis plays for Double-A Tennessee where he is slashing .278/.381/.481, with ten doubles, four home runs, and 14 RBIs in just 31 games. He seems to have adjusted well to the much more challenging Double-A level.

The expectation is for Davis to be a huge part of a storyline in the second half of the season for the Cubs, with an impending sell-off coming, the future of the Cubs’ organization is sure to grab a lot of attention in the coming months.
