The Cubs also selected Missouri State right-handed pitcher Pierce Johnson (No. 43 overall) and high school right-handed pitcher Paul Blackburn (No. 56 overall) yesterday.
Tonight the Cubs will play the first game of a three-game series against the Brewers in Milwaukee at 7:10pm CT. Ryan Dempster will start for the Cubs and try for his first win of the season. Let's hope Dempster will get some run support from his teammates.
