Cubs’ top prospect Brennen Davis has back surgery

Outfielder Brennen Davis, the MVP of the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game last year and the Cubs’ No. 1 prospect, underwent back surgery on Thursday in Los Angeles, sources told MLB.com.

One month after being shelved due to what was initially described as lower-back tightness, Davis underwent a procedure after persistent discomfort and that led to the discovery of a vascular malformation (a nest of blood vessels) that pushed against a nerve. The positive news was that no structural damage was found in Davis’ back and the highly-touted outfielder is expected to make a full recovery. At this early stage, Davis’ timeline for return is to be determined, making it unclear whether a comeback this season is realistic.

Davis, 22, is ranked as the Cubs’ top prospect per MLB Pipeline and other outlets and entered this season as a possible in-season arrival to the big leagues with the North Siders. The former prep baseball and basketball standout climbed through Double-A and Triple-A last season and launched a pair of home runs in the Futures Game to claim MVP honors and put his name on the national radar. He was selected by the Cubs in the second round of the 2018 Draft.
