The Chicago Cubs have agreed to terms with third baseman Josh Lansford, their sixth-round selection from the 2006 First-Year Player Draft.

Lansford, a junior at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, was the club's top hitter this season. He batted .353 en route to second-team All-Big West Conference honors. He produced the team's longest hitting streak of the season at 16 games, during which he hit .397 (27-for-68).

The son of former Major League infielder Carney Lansford, Josh led his club with 26 multi-hit games and earned the team's 2006 Most Valuable Player award.

Overall, Chicago has agreed to terms with eight of its first 10 selections and 14 of their first 21 picks.
