Brennan Milone and Jonathan French attended a pre-draft workout with the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.
DJ Herz attended a pre-draft workout with the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.
Mason Auer, Jordan Beck, Jason Hodges, DJ Jefferson, Sebastian Keane, Brooks Lee, Trevor McDonald, Chris Mokma, Quinn Priester, Ryan Ritter, Glenn Santiago, Noah Soles, Brandon Sproat, and Yordys Valdes were also invited to attend a pre-draft workout at Wrigley Field.

Great follow around draft season: @Savermetrics. Recently these 3 tweets about high school guys hosted in Wrigley caught my eye. Last year, guys like Roederer and Franklin were brought in pre-draft, so this is valuable info to file away if youre handicapping possible Cubs picks.

Particularly interesting to see Brennan Malone mentioned, as hes usually mocked to be drafted before the Cubs pick (and McLeod and Co dont generally draft HS pitching in the first round).

Mooney with article about a Chicago high school pitcher.  I'm really starting to think that a high school arm could be a real possibility in the first round.  Priester is usually mocked well before the Cubs pick.

Fangraphs most recent mock has the Cubs taking J.J. Goss, HS RHP out of Texas.  Malone, who the Cubs worked out at Wrigley goes the pick after.  Daniel Espino is another HS RHP who has a big fastball who could go around when the Cubs pick.  If Kody Hoese falls to around the Cubs he could be an option, Esptein was at his conference tourney.

College bats I hope the Cubs are considering, in no particular order...

Thomas Dillard - Ole Miss
Grae Kessinger - Ole Miss
Parker Phillips - Austin Peay

Just take a HS pitcher with a big arm.  This whole soft-tossing crafty college pitcher approach has failed miserably.

Looking back at our 2015 draft...that must have been some drinking binge the night before! Picking prospects while blindfolded would have likely had better results.

I would love to see the Cubs take Ryan Zeferjahn in the 2nd round or early Day 2.

Fangraphs did a 2 round mock and had Graeme Stinson going to the pirates in round 2. Hed be an interesting, but risky pick. He was widely considered the best college pitcher and then got hurt with an undisclosed injury and just recently started throwing on the side.

Hoese looking like he could fall to the Cubs.

Edit: Hoese to the Dodgers.

Not the first time the Cubs would get Hoesed in the draft.
