Connor Noland officially signs with Chicago Cubs



Fayetteville, Arkansas – The right-handed pitcher, Connor Noland’s time at Arkansas has come to an end.

On Saturday, he signed his pro contract with the Chicago Cubs, who drafted him in the ninth round of the 2022 MLB Draft on Tuesday.

He signed with the Cubs for $200,000, which is over the slot value for the 263rd pick ($164,500), according to

As Evan Taylor signed with the Miami Marlins on Saturday too, Noland is not the only Arkansas pitcher to sign his professional contract.

Prior to Arkansas, Noland was a two-sport standout at Greenwood High School in baseball and football. If Noland makes it to the majors, he’d become only the second Greenwood native to play in MLB, along with George Bradley who did so in 1946.
