New Cubs draft pick celebrated his selection in epic fashion

It's fair to say Chase Strumpf had himself a night.

Mere minutes after being selected by the Cubs in the MLB Draft, the UCLA infielder connected on a huge home run to help send his Bruins to the Super Regional. 

As UCLA was clinging to a 3-2 lead in the fourth inning of an elimination game against Loyola Marymount in the NCAA postseason, Strumpf was warming up in the on-deck circle as he was drafted by the Cubs. He then delivered a two-out, 2-run shot:

What a way to celebrate being drafted.

The Cubs made Strumpf the 64th overall selection the MLB Draft Monday night, taking the second baseman/outfielder after going with pitcher Ryan Jensen in the first round (27th overall)

In the lead-up to the Draft, ESPN's Keith Law ranked both players in his Top 50 prospects, with Jensen 35th and Strumpf 39th. So maybe the Cubs got something of a steal in Strumpf.

The 21-year-old has had a solid junior campaign at UCLA, slashing .280/.418/.467 (.885 OPS) with 8 homers and 41 RBI in 59 games. But this spring has been a step back for Strumpf, who burst onto the national scene last season with an absurd .363/.475/.633 slash line (1.108 OPS), 12 homers and 53 RBI in 58 games. 

Still, he's an on-base machine who walks almost as much as he strikes out, which is certainly a positive even despite his 164-point dip in slugging between the two years. Strumpf — a right-handed hitter — was named to the Pac-12 All-Conference Team.

The MLB Draft continues Tuesday, though Strumpf has his UCLA Bruins moving on to the next round.
