Top Cubs prospect Brennen Davis rejoins Triple-A Iowa originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
Top Cubs prospect Brennen Davis, who underwent back surgery earlier this season and missed extended time, has rejoined Triple-A Iowa.
Davis, who recently completed a rehab assignment, was in the I-Cubs' starting lineup Tuesday against the Columbus Clippers, the opener of a 12-game road trip.
Davis, whom evaluators ranked the Cubs' top prospect to start this season, last played for Iowa May 3 before going on the injured list with the back issue that led to surgery.
He returned to action two weeks ago, playing in 10 games on a rehab assignment with the ACL Cubs and Single-A South Bend.
Davis, who opened the season as MLB Pipeline’s No. 15 prospect and moved to No. 51 since the injury, was poised for a potential big-league debut this summer before going on the IL.
The 22-year-old has received just 131 plate appearances this season due to the injury and is expected to play in the upcoming Arizona Fall League.
