6/17 First round pick update
The Cubs appear to be close to signing No. 1 pick Hayden Simpson, selected 16th overall in the First-Year Player Draft. Simpson, a right-handed pitcher from Southern Arkansas, could be at Wrigley Field this weekend to announce the signing.
The Cubs have agreed to terms with 11 of their picks from the June Draft, including Hunter Ackerman, taken in the fourth round out of Louisburg College.
