2012 MLB Mock Draft: Chicago Cubs Could Take Albert Almora With No. 6 Overall Selection

The Chicago Cubs have the No. 6 overall pick in the 2012 MLB Draft and have all sorts of options in that spot. In this projection from Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com, the Cubs take outfielder Albert Amora. Here's what Mayo has to say about the pick:

6. Chicago Cubs: Albert Almora, OF, Mater Academy (Fla.)
With Theo Epstein and company now running the show, it will be interesting to see in what direction the Cubs go. There's been talk about high-end high school hitters. Assuming Buxton is gone, that leaves Almora, a heady yet toolsy outfielder from the Miami area, or Carlos Correa, a high school shortstop from Puerto Rico.
