Cubs calling up Mervis to boost offense

The Cubs’ offense went cold over its recent road trip through Miami and D.C. But reinforcements are on the way.

The team is planning to promote top first base prospect Matt Mervis, a source told’s Mark Feinsand on Thursday. The club has not confirmed the news, which surfaced during its series finale against the Nationals in the nation’s capital.

The 25-year-old Mervis emerged as one of the game’s best power prospects in 2022, when he cranked 36 home runs across three levels and led the Minors in extra-base hits, total bases and RBIs. He was also off to a strong start this year with Triple-A Iowa, hitting .286/.402/.560 with six homers and 27 RBIs in 24 games.
