#Cubs Day 2 of Draft roundup

The Cubs wrapped up Day 2 of the three-day First-Year Player Draft on Tuesday, selecting 10 players. Among them was left-handed pitcher Bryan Hudson of Alton (Ill.) High School, the third round pick, and outfielder Darryl Wilson of Canton South High School in Ohio, the fourth round selection. In the fifth round, the Cubs selected left-handed pitcher Ryan Kellogg from Arizona State University.

Hudson, 18, went 10-2 with five shutouts and a 0.50 ERA in 70 1/3 innings while striking out 152 hitters in 15 appearances (13 starts) for the Alton Redbirds this past season. The southpaw limited opponents to a .138 batting average to go along with a 0.90 WHIP. He averaged 19.45 strikeouts per nine innings all while posting a 5.24 strikeout to walk ratio (29 walks).

Wilson, 18, batted .545 with a 1.000 slugging percentage, 30 RBI and 30 stolen bases for the Canton South Wildcats this season. The left-handed hitting outfielder led the Wildcats to their first Division II regional final appearance in school history and to their fourth-consecutive district title. He was named to the Central – All Region First Team and was honored as a 2015 Perfect Game Second Team All-American. He has committed to Vanderbilt University.

Kellogg, 21, went 9-2 with two complete games (one shutout) and a 3.60 ERA (46 ER/115.0 IP) in 16 starts for Arizona State this season. The southpaw led the Sun Devils in wins for the third-straight season, and recorded a career-best 92 strikeouts compared to just 23 walks.

Through the first two days of the Draft, the Cubs have selected six pitchers (three right-handed and three left-handed), three outfielders and one infielder. Additionally, the Cubs have selected eight college players and two high school players.
