2012 MLB Draft Order, Day 3: Cubs Choose 6th In Rounds 16-40

The Chicago Cubs have shown a clear interest in adding pitching during the 2012 MLB Draft, the team's first under the highly-touted new brain trust of Jed Hoyer and Theo Epstein. The Cubs have made 17 selections in the first days of the draft, and 11 of them have been pitchers. The North Siders drafted pitchers exclusively in rounds 2-8 after tabbing Miami-bred high school outfielder Albert Almora with their first pick, No. 6 overall.

Rounds 16-40 will take place on Wednesday, and the order remains stagnate. That means the Cubs will be picking sixth, while the White Sox will be picking No. 13.

Here's a look at all the Cubs' draft picks so far:

  1. OF Albert Almora (No. 6 overall)
  2. RHP Pierce Johnson (No. 43)
  3. RHP Paul Blackburn (No. 56)
  4. RHP Duane Underwood (No. 67)
