Oklahoma State's Thomas Hatch has agreed to terms with the Chicago Cubsreports Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune. Gonzales adds that Hatch will fly Tuesday to Arizona to take his physical before officially signing.

Hatch, who was selected with the 104th overall pick in the third round by the Cubs in the MLB Draft last month, posted a 9-3 record with a 2.14 ERA in 130 1/3 innings during his sophomore season for the Cowboys.

The right-hander threw 25.2 consecutive scoreless innings, dating to a May 26 no-decision in the Cowboys' Big 12 tournament loss to TCU until the second game against Arizona at the College World Series.

Arizona pounced on the Jenks High School product early with two runs in the first and second innings. He allowed four runs on five hits before being pulled just two batters in the third.

Prior to the game against the Wildcats, he went seven scoreless innings against Nebraska in its regional matchup and another seven scoreless against South Carolina in the super regional. He followed those performances up with a complete-game shutout in a CWS-opening, 1-0 win over UC-Santa Barbara.
