MLB Draft 2012: Cubs Will Work Out SS Carlos Correa

Although the new Chicago Cubs front office led by Jed Hoyer and Theo Epstein made plenty of moves in the offseason to alter the look of the 2012 Cubs, their first major decision in Chicago will be their first round selection in the 2012 MLB Draft. The Cubs' first pick is at No. 6 overall, and if Hoyer and Epstein hit on that pick, it will go a long way to turning the franchise around, even though the prospect would obviously be far away from the majors.

The Cubs reportedly have interest in all of the consensus top prospects, one of which is Puerto Rican shortstop Carlos Correa. According to ESPNChicago's Bruce Levine, the Cubs will work out Correa at Wrigley Field on Wednesday as the team readies to solidify its draft board. Correa could be gone by the time the Cubs pick, but he could also make a tantalizing infield tandem with 2011 first round pick Javier Baez.
