MLB Mock Draft 2012: Cubs Draft Outfielder Albert Almora In MLB.com Mock Draft

The latest mock draft from MLB.com's prospect guru, Jonathon Mayo, has the Chicago Cubs selecting the second outfielder of the draft, grabbing Albert Almora with the No. 6 pick in the 2012 MLB Draft:

6. Chicago Cubs: Albert Almora, OF, Mater Academy (Fla.)

It's been Fried, Correa and Almora in this spot and there could be interest in all three, but we'll stick with the initial projection here.

Chicago enters the draft with three first round draft picks -- No. 6, No. 43 and No. 56 -- their most first-round picks since 2002 when the club have four selections in the opening round. The 2012 MLB Draft begins on Monday night at 6:00 p.m. CDT.
