6/7 Draft possibilities
Who will the Cubs take in the first round of the First-Year Player Draft? Two mock Drafts predicted they will select high school senior Justin O’Connor, who could be a catcher or shortstop or even a pitcher. The Cubs, Mets, Athletics and Blue Jays all looked at O’Conner recently and he is considered one of the top 25 prep seniors in the nation by nearly every scouting service. He played for Cowan High School in Muncie, IN. The Cubs have the 16th pick.
