Could the Cubs take pitchers with their first two picks in the 2013 draft? Absolutely, and among those who could
still be available when they make the 41st overall pick -- after likely taking one of the top college arms with the second overall pick -- are three very intriguing college pitchers: Florida right-hander Karsten Whitson, Pepperdine right-hander Scott Frazier and Minnesota left-hander Tom Windle. Whitson seems of particular interest as the Padres took him with the ninth overall pick in 2010 and failed to sign him. The guys responsible for picking him, Jason McLeod and Jed Hoyer, have since moved from San Diego to the Cubs. Whitson has been injured throughout his career in Gainesville and could shoot up the draft board if he gets on track this year. MLB.com's Jonathan Mayo current ranks Whitson 43rd, Frazier's 47th and Windle 48th. Another interesting guy who could be available when the Cubs make their second pick: Stanford first baseman-outfielder Brian Ragira. He has impressive raw power and could get to the big leagues quickly.
