6/6 Draft day

Cubs GM Jed Hoyer said they were pleased with their selections in the First-Year Player Draft, which wrapped up Wednesday.

“We feel really good about it,” Hoyer said. “It went according to plan. We talked about adding pitching depth to the system and we really pounded at pitching after we took [outfielder Albert] Almora with the first pick. I thought we’d take a hitter at the top and take a lot of pitching, and that’s exactly what we did. I think every team feels good about their Draft today, everyone had a good Draft and we’ll find out in five years if we were right.”
