- The Cubs surprised everyone and selected a guy that should have been around a 3rd or 4th round pick but his numbers do not show it. His name is Hayden Simpson and here is a link to what he has to offer, stats, and fan reaction on Cubreporter.com.
You can also check out analysis on day two also at Cubreporter.com. They have the best in Cubs draft coverage.
Three players to watch besides Hayden that the Cubs drafted-
Micah Gibbs- Great defensive catcher who could really benefit the Cubs in the future. Good baseball smarts and a real hard worker.
Dustin Geiger- He plays third but will likely seem more outfield time in the Cubs system if he stays. This kid can swing the bat but was drafted low so only time will tell if he stays.
Pierre LePage- A true leadoff hitter and reminds scouts of David Eckstein.
Until Next Time....
