The Chicago Cubs’ top prospect will start the 2022 season one step away from Chicago.

Outfielder Brennen Davis, ranked No. 1 in the Chicago’s system according to MLB Pipeline, has been assigned to the Triple-A Iowa Cubs.

Selected in the second round of the 2018 MLB Draft, Davis ended this past season in Iowa. The 22-year-old had a .268/.397/.536 slash line with three home runs, including two in his first two at-bats, in 15 games for Iowa.

Davis had a breakout season in 2021, playing at three different minor-league levels and reaching Triple-A. He also hit two home runs to earn All-Star Futures Game MVP honors. With Minor League Baseball closed down in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, David didn’t play any games but did spend time at the Cubs’ alternate site in South Bend, Indiana.

Davis will join outfielder Nelson Velazquez (No. 16) and right-handed pitcher Ben Leeper (No. 28) in Triple-A. Two top-10 prospects in the Cubs’ system, righty Caleb Killian (No. 4) and lefty Brailyn Marquez (No. 10), could move their way up from Double-A to Iowa this season.

Brennen Davis and the Iowa Cubs open their season April 5 with a six-game series at the Buffalo Bison (Toronto Blue Jays). Iowa’s home opener is on April 12 against the Toledo Mud Hens (Detroit Tigers) at Principal Park.
