Epstein continues to prepare for upcoming Draft

CHICAGO -- Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein spent Tuesday watching Class A Kane County, but also reviewing video of some of the potential top picks in the upcoming First-Year Player Draft, June 5-7.

The Cubs have the fourth pick overall.

"We're just going to take the best player, regardless of position -- the best investment, the best bet on that player's career," Epstein said. "I think there's tremendous pitching depth in this class. I think there's more depth than elite, per se, but we should come out with a pretty good pitching haul, we hope, when it's all said and done."

The Cubs have done well in Epstein's first two Drafts, picking outfielder Albert Almora in 2012 and third baseman Kris Bryant in 2013.
