With the 16th overall pick, the Cubs have selected:
Hayden Simpson, RHP, Southern Arkansas University
Simpson was a D-II pitcher, making him a lot lower-profile. A very big surprise, as he wasn't on anybody's first round radar coming into the day, but the Cubs probably wouldn't have made this pick if they believed they could be more patient. Simpson dominated his level, and showed himself capable of working in the mid-90s. He also spins off a curveball, but there's some belief he's a bullpen guy long-term. Just not a whole lot known about this pick, which makes his placement at 16 a shock.
