    I have 3-7 pick after TCA's pick. Washington Nationals now has the 3-17 pick.

    McKenzie was a 3rd round pick. Late rounds you're really talking about fliers, or guys a LONG ways away. Some people did find some useful arms late, like Matt Bush and Biagini

    Yes McKenzie was late 3rd, and Alcantara was 4th. I can't disagree with the rest of your statement. I seem to do worse in the first round, then I do in later rounds though.

    Sorry, didn't know I was up. I didn't see the Mexican picked.

    Was Matt Bush drafted and dropped? I added him off debut waivers

    Yep, he was dropped a month after he was drafted.

    I always like to put "Speedy" 's name in quotes, to draw attention to the misnomer.

    10. Jose Albertos, rhp

    Born: Nov. 7, 1998. B-T: R-R. Ht.: 6-1. Wt.: 190. Signed: Mexico, 2015. Signed by: Segio Hernandez/Louie Eljaua.

    Background: The Cubs have actively and aggressively scouted Mexico in recent years, with Albertos receiving the largest bonus among a group of signees that includes shortstop Isaac Paredes. He officially signed for $1.5 million as part of a package of players the Cubs signed from Tijuana of the Mexican League. He made his pro debut in June 2016 with four electric innings, wowing club officials, but he missed the rest of the season with tightness in his forearm.

    Scouting Report: Albertos was well-regarded as a prospect as an amateur, but his extended spring training performance had the Cubs excited. His fastball, generally in the 92-94 mph range earlier, jumped to 94-96 and touched 98 for the duration of his debut start. Moreover, he’s shown signs of true fastball command when healthy, throwing strikes with his heater to both sides of the plate. Albertos’ changeup flashes well above-average, overmatching Rookie-level hitters and projecting as a potential 70-grade pitch on the 20-80 scouting scale. His breaking ball was considered ahead of his changeup before he signed, and he’s shown the ability to spin a slider.
    The Future: The Cubs handled Albertos extremely carefully all summer and fall, hoping he can gain strength to handle his extreme arm speed and fastball velocity. He’s set for extended spring training and either a repeat of the AZL or potentially short-season Eugene.
