Cubs Sign Second-Round Pick Rob Zastryzny

The Cubs have signed second-rounder Rob Zastryzny, MLB Daily Dish's Chris Cotillo reports.  Zastryzny will receive a $1.1MM bonus, less than the $1.362MM assigned slot value of the 41st overall pick (hat tip to Baseball America for the slotting information). 

The University of Missouri southpaw revealed that his deal was done on his Twitter account, saying he was "officially part of the Chicago Cubs organization" earlier today.  Zastryzny is advised by Aspire Sports.

Zastryzny throws a 90 mph fastball that Baseball America says he "effortlessly adds and subtracts from," ranging between 86 and 95 mph.  The left-hander "throws strikes but will need to refine his command in pro ball," and has somewhat of an inconsistent breaking ball.  BA rated Zastryzny as the 76th-best prospect in this year's draft class while ESPN's Keith Law rated him a level higher in the #58 spot.
