The 2020 MLB Draft is in the books, and the most intriguing selection might be Cubs pitcher Luke Little.

The 19-year-old lefty has been clocked at an eye-popping 105 MPH on the radar gun. And Luke
is not exactly Little, standing at 6 feet, 8 inches tall – inviting comparisons to Hall of Famer Randy Johnson.

Little was taken in the 4th round of this week’s draft, which was cut to just 5 rounds due to the coronavirus pandemic.


Can Little be the next Randy Johnson? Is throwing 105 MPH too much strain for a 19-year-old pitcher?
