Cubs announce deals with 3 draft picks

CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs finalized minor league deals with three more draft picks on Thursday, including second-round selection Burl Carraway.

Left-hander Luke Little and right-hander Koen Moreno also signed their contracts. Little was selected in the fourth round and Moreno went in the fifth.

Carraway received a $1,050,000 signing bonus. Little got $492,700, and Moreno’s bonus was $900,000.

The Cubs announced first-round pick Ed Howard’s deal on Monday. Jordan Nwogu, an outfielder from the University of Michigan who went in the third round at No. 88 overall, is the only unsigned pick for Chicago from this year’s amateur draft.

The 21-year-old Carraway went 6-2 with 11 saves and a 2.47 ERA in his final two seasons at Dallas Baptist. The lefty has a big fastball and might be able to help the Cubs out of their bullpen very soon.

The 6-foot-8 Little struck out 86 in 44 1/3 innings in two seasons at San Jacinto College North, but he also walked 39. Moreno was a prep star at Panther Creek High School in North Carolina, compiling a 1.62 ERA and 80 strikeouts in 47 2/3 innings as a junior in 2019.
