Actually that scouting report fits his dad's profile pretty well.

And getting a player the caliber of his father in anything after the 5th round is a big plus.

At work, hard to follow...  Anyone mysteriously slipping who'd be a coup?

Very hard to get enthused on that one.  No power, probably can't stick at SS, sounds like a RH LaStella.

Nico Hoerner is said to be the consummate team player, who is a very slick fielder and solid bat.  Some scouts say he's the type of fielder, athlete and personality who could move around the diamond and add versatility, which is increasingly important with shifts.

His parents are both teachers...his dad at a distinguished private school east of San Francisco and his mother on the faculty at U of California-Berkeley.  That he's at Stanford says something about his intellect, too.

His coaches agree - it's not a matter of IF he gets to the majors, it's a matter of when.

Of course, after selecting Almora-Bryant-Schwarber-Happ in R1 of consecutive drafts, we could assume our FO would select a solid player and person.  That the selection before Almora was Javy Freaking Baez shows that Hendry/Wilken could make a great pick, too.

Cubs apparently feel they can likely help Hoerner grow toward the type of power Happ has developed.
