Extra bases

• Sveum not only is trying to find the 25 best players to take north, but also helping the front office pick which player to select in the June First-Year Player Draft. The Cubs have the second pick overall.

Sveum is watching a lot of video. A lot of video.

"Of course I am," he said, laughing. "I can't leave that completely up to them."

He's seen film of the top 10 players projected in the Draft, which will be held June 6-8, and didn't reveal his favorites.

• The Cubs' bunt tournament resumes on Sunday. Anthony Rizzo reached the sweet 16, but because he is leaving for the World Baseball Classic, he'll have his match Sunday against Logan Watkins. If Rizzo advances, the Cubs will just tweak the schedule so he can continue to compete. There will be three other matches on Monday.
