Gordon Wittenmyer goes out on limb, predicts Cubs likely to take one of the top two talents available at number 2

I don't have a subscription to the Sun-Times. Can't imagine I ever will, so I got this info from MLBTR.

Major League Baseball's draft is still about six weeks away, but Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times writes that the Cubs are likely to draft either Stanford right-hander Mark Appel or Oklahoma right-hander Jonathan Gray with the No. 2 overall pick. Wittenmyer spoke about the draft to multiple team sources, including manager Dale Sveum who told him:

"Obviously, the two big boys, Appel and Gray, if those guys keep the velocity where it is and everything’s going good, I think it’s hard not to take one of them guys."

According to nearly every analyst, Appel and Gray are the top two players in the draft. It should come as no surprise that the Cubs would pick one of them with the 2nd pick in the draft.
