Cubs Sign Two More

The Chicago Cubs have agreed to terms with right-handed pitcher Chris Huseby, the club's 11th round selection from the 2006 First-Year Player Draft, and center fielder Andrew Rundle, the club's 14th round pick.

Huseby, who recently graduated from Martin County High School in Stuart, Fla., was the baseball team's Co-MVP and Best Pitcher in 2004, going 5-2 with a 1.10 ERA in 51.0 innings. He was selected for the Junior National Olympic Team before undergoing Tommy John surgery in March of 2005.

In 2006, Huseby helped Martin County reach the Class 5A Region 4 finals en route to earning Comeback Player of the Year honors.

Rundle, who recently graduated from Bend (Ore.) Senior High School, batted .438 with 24 RBI and 32 runs while not committing an error in the field during the 2006 season. The left-handed hitter was recently named the 2005-06 Gatorade Oregon High School Player of the Year.

Rundle, who also lettered as a wide receiver in football, batted .415 with 35 RBI during his junior season.

Overall, Chicago has agreed to terms with its first 13 selections and 17 of their first 21 picks.
