Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk spoke to members of the media to give updates on current injuries in the organization. One of the updates provided was on catching prospect Henry Davis, who Tomczyk says will be shut down for a couple weeks due to a lingering wrist injury.
Davis previously missed nearly a month of action earlier in the season after getting hit by a pitch in his wrist. The Bucs activated Davis, but they put him back on the 7-day injured list on July 8.
The 2021 first overall pick has worked his way up to Double-A Altoona this season and has appeared in games between four levels. In total, Davis is slashing .269/.399/.483 with seven homers and 31 RBIs in 41 games on the year. Davis has been hit by a pitch 17 times this season.
Davis was named to the National League Future’s team during All-Star weekend as one of two Pirates representatives alongside Mike Burrows. Davis, however, will not be able to partake in the game.
It is expected that Davis will be back in action again before the season ends, according to general manager Ben Cherington.
