The Cubs picked college C/OF Kyle Schwarber in the draft today at the #4 overall pick. While some may view this as a disappointment, Schwarber was very worthy of the pick. He was the best bat in the college game this year and perhaps the best overall. He was downgraded because of defensive questions, but very few question his ability to hit.
Much more detail later, but the Cubs found a hitter who has a great approach at the plate and can hit the ball over the fence. Whether he sticks at catcher or moves to left field, he should provide another left handed bat in the middle of the order in a few years.Add a comment
