And now, analysis of Hayden Simpson going No. 16 to the Chicago Cubs:

Law: I haven't heard anyone mention Simpson as a potential first-rounder this entire spring -- one club I know had him going in the fourth-fifth rounds -- and I can't imagine he wouldn't have made it to Day 2 had the Cubs not taken him. He's 90-92 with a decent curve and average-or-better command and control.
