Theo Epstein and company have now been at the helm in Chicago for roughly a season-and-a-half, and while the Cubs are once again struggling at the big league level, the organization as a whole has improved significantly from the ground up since the start of last year.
Last season, the team held the No. 6 pick in the draft, selecting Mater Academy outfielder Albert Almora, who entered the year as the team's No. 2 prospect, according to Baseball America.
After losing 101 games last season, the Cubs enter this year's draft with the No. 2 overall pick. The smart money is on the team taking a college arm, either Mark Appel or Jonathan Gray, as there is a clear need for high-end young pitching.
The following will track the Cubs' selections throughout the 2013 MLB Draft, starting with picks No. 2 and No. 41 which will take place on Day 1.
