Let's take a look at some late round Cubs draft picks that went on to have solid careers.
  • Ryne Sandberg, 20th round, 1978
  • Randy Wells, 38th round, 2002
  • Micah Hoffpauir, 13th round, 2002
  • Tim Lincecum, 48th round, 2003- did not sign with the Cubs
  • Sam Fuld, 24th round, 2003- did not sign until he was drafted by the Cubs again in '04
  • Micah Owings, 19th round, 2004
  • Michael Brenly, 43rd round, 2005- another guy that did not sign until the second time he was drafted. He's not in the bigs yet, but he's still worth noting.

Will the Cubs find a hidden gem today? Follow all the action on and on!
