The Cubs are really stocking up on arms since taking Almora. With their 3rd round pick, the Cubs selected..
- 210 lbs.
- Nipomo HS, California
O'Neill is an athletic big-framed pitcher with good velocity (90-93 mph), but needs a lot of work in terms of mechanics and his breaking stuff. He definitely puts the "project" in projectability. Development will be the key here as all the parts are there, he just can't get them all to work at the same time consistently. This is an interesting pick, as O'Neill is said to have a solid commitment to Long Beach State so he may not be an easy sign.
This one is the pick I'm most unsure about, but again, the Cubs have way, way more information than I do, so I'll trust them on this one.
