So far, the Cubs have signed 18 players from the June draft, including four top-five picks, eight top-10 selections and 15 top-20 picks. Skulina, 21, went 6-4 with a 3.36 ERA in 15 games for the Golden Flashes. He walked 34 and struck out 102, for an average of 9.8 strikeouts per nine innings pitched. He was named a 2013 Louisville Slugger Pre-Season Second Team All-American after going 11-3 with a 3.77 ERA in 18 starts in 2012.
