Matt Stites Waiting On Cubs Offer Before Making Decision To Join Missouri Tigers

The answer, he says, will come with the Cubs offer.

"I am in a great spot right now," he said. "I want to pitch professionally, and I know what my dollar number is now and so do they," he said. "If they offer that number I will most likely sign. If not, I head to Mizzou and will look forward to pitching for the Tigers."

This will be an interesting decision. If he doesn't sign with the Cubs, he'll go to Mizzou then be drafted again next year in three years.
