Cubs sign fourth-round Draft pick Skulina

MILWAUKEE -- The Cubs announced Thursday they signed right-handed pitcher Tyler Skulina from Kent State University, their fourth-round selection in the First-Year Player Draft.

The Cubs have signed 18 players from the June draft, including four top-five picks, eight top-10 selections and 15 top-20 picks.

Skulina, 21, went 6-4 with a 3.36 ERA in 15 games for the Golden Flashes. He walked 34 and struck out 102 for an average of 9.8 strikeouts per nine innings.

He was named a 2013 Louisville Slugger Pre-Season Second Team All-American after going 11-3 with a 3.77 ERA in 18 starts in 2012. The right-hander sat out the '11 campaign after transferring from Virginia. He was selected by Oakland in the 46th round of the'10 Draft, but did not sign.
