Davis, Jensen earn Cubs' minor league honors for July


The Cubs named prospects Brennen Davis and Ryan Jensen their minor league player and pitcher of the month for July on Wednesday.

Davis, 21, had a huge month with Double-A Tennessee, slashing .298/.410/.667 with seven home runs and 21 RBIs in 24 games.

Among all Double-A players, the outfielder ranked second in doubles (10) and extra-base hits (17), fourth in OPS (1.077) and fifth in slugging.

Not only did he have an impressive month with the Smokies, but Davis also took home MVP honors at the Futures Game on July 11 behind a two-home run performance.

The Cubs promoted Davis, their No. 2 overall prospect according to MLB Pipeline, to Tennessee at the beginning of June. A Triple-A promotion may not be far behind.

Jensen finished July with a 1.99 ERA in five starts for Single-A South Bend, striking out 28 with four walks in 22 2/3 innings. The right-hander turned in a 0.71 WHIP as opponents hit .150 against him with .413 OPS.

The 23-year-old, who has a 4.81 ERA in 15 starts this season, was the Cubs first-round pick (27th overall) in 2019. MLB Pipeline ranks him as the Cubs' No. 12 prospect.
