Sunday afternoon, baseball's best and brightest prospects convened at Coors Field for the 2021 Futures Game, MLB's annual showcase of the stars of tomorrow. The National League bested the American League to earn an 8-3 win highlighted byCubs prospect Brennan Davis going deep twice and taking home the game's MVP honors.
This marks the second time a Cubs prospect has won the Futures Game MVP. Kyle Schwarber took the honors in 2015 due to a triple and two RBI. It's fair to say this is the biggest Futures Game any Cubs prospect has had with the two bombs, though.
Davis, 21, was the Cubs' second-round pick in 2018 out of high school. He's progressed to the Double-A level this season, where he's hitting .278/.381/.481 with 10 doubles, four homers, 14 RBI, 22 runs and three steals.
