A Few Draft Notes

Posted by Lionel on June 23, 2009.

A few news and notes regarding the players selected in last week's draft...


  • 1st Round pick Brett Jackson has signed with the Cubs, according to various reports. Obviously, it's good to hear the Cubs won't be sweating it out on the final days to sign him. He is expected to report to Boise.

  • Speaking of Boise, the Cubs 8th round pick, pitcher Robert Whitenack, is already with the team after signing.

  • The Cubs 2nd round pick probably isn't thinking too much of his contract negotiations with the Cubs right now, as he is playing the College World Series Finals. D.J. LeMahieu was a huge part of LSU's game one victory. LeMahieu hit a solo homer to cut the lead to one in the seventh and had a 2 RBI double in the ninth that tied the game. Then in the 11th, he walked, stole second, went to third on a bad throw from the catcher (he probably would've been thrown out at second except for the errant throw), and scored the go-ahead (and winning) run.
