The Chicago Cubs have made their selection in the 2021 MLB Draft. They selected pitcher Jordan Wicks from Kansas State University with the 21st overall pick. He is one of the most MLB-ready prospects in the entire draft. There is a legit chance that he is the first player from the entire draft to reach Major League Baseball. It is a great selection as the Cubs have needed to draft and develop pitching for a long time.
The Chicago Cubs are looking to continue drafting and developing pitching.
Everyone knows that the Chicago Cubs have been terrible at drafting and developing pitching. The biggest failure of the Theo Epstein era has been developing good pitchers. All of them that were successful for them were either free agents or trades. It is a big sore spot and the reason they only ended up with one World Series instead of multiple.
