Pirates prospects, Henry Davis

For the first time with Triple-A Indianapolis, Pirates prospect Henry Davis connected on a home run for the Indians.

It was the sixth game in Triple-A for Davis after being recently promoted from Double-A Altoona. After the homer, Davis raised his OPS with Indianapolis to .825.

Davis is considered to be arguably the top Pirates’ prospect in the system after being selected with the first overall pick in the 2021 MLB Draft.

Davis was joined by several teammates at Indianapolis as some of the standouts down on the farm.
