Cubs Weekly Podcast: Recapping Draft with Cubs VP of Scouting Dan Kantrovitz
The Cubs put a bow on the 3-day draft Tuesday by selecting 10 players in rounds 11-20. Cubs VP of Scouting Dan Kantrovitz stopped by the Cubs Weekly Podcast with Andy Martínez and Lance Brozdowski to recap the eventful — and restless — 3 days of the draft.
Kantrovitz shares some insight on 1st round pick Matt Shaw, his offensive profile and why they liked him as their first pick. Then, Kantrovitz goes in depth on 2nd round pick Jaxon Wiggins, one of the pitchers the Cubs were excited to pick in the draft. Later in the pod, Kantrovitz provides some information on some of the more intriguing later round picks the Cubs made, like 6th rounder Alfonsin Rosario and 16th round pick Daniel Brown.
To wrap up the pod, Brozdowski and Martínez discuss their takeaways from the draft and the All-Star Game, where Justin Steele pitched a scoreless inning.
