Drafted in the supplemental 2nd round (76th overall) by the Atlanta Braves in 2016 (signed for $1,500,000)
An eligible sophomore, Cumberland was the rare Cal player performing during a disappointing spring for the Bears. He didn't play last summer after right hand and wrist injuries that dogged him as a freshman, instead working on an almond orchard, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. He's come back strong as a sophomore, leading the Pacific-12 Conference in home runs, with 33 percent more than any other hitter by mid-May. He's a bat-first backstop with bat speed and strength as well as some feel for hitting from both sides of the plate. Cumberland's defense has improved but needs more polish, with fringy arm strength (though he's thrown out 42 percent of opposing runners in 2016). His receiving and blocking skills are below-average presently. He has below-average athleticism and figures to go out in the first three rounds.
