Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
11 340 Houston Astros Justin Gominsky OF Minn.
Outfielder Justin Gominsky looked like an early-round pick for 2011 when he hit .338 with 15 extra-base hits and 11 steals as a freshman, but he missed all but six games last year when he injured his right knee. He has been slow to recover from the layoff and adjust to the new bats, and batted just .307/.367/.381 as a redshirt sophomore this spring. Despite the lack of performance, the 6-foot-4, 185-pounder has easily the best package of tools among the state's position players. He has slightly above-average speed and arm strength, and he plays a fine center field. A righthanded hitter, he'll have to refine his approach and get stronger if he's going to do damage at the plate.
24 745 Cincinnati Reds Nick O'Shea 1B Minn.
25 778 Minnesota Twins Adam Pettersen SS Minn.
27 827 Detroit Tigers Scott Matyas RHP Minn.
36 1107 San Francisco Giants Austin Lubinsky RHP Minn.
Fellow Minnesota righthander Austin Lubinsky's stuff is similar to that of Oakes, though he comes in a smaller package at 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds. Lubinsky is athletic and has solid mechanics, which allow him to fill the strike zone. He has an 88-92 mph fastball that can get straight at times, as well as a decent low-80s slider and an effective changeup.
41 1258 Minnesota Twins T.J. Oakes RHP Minn.
Righthander T.J. Oakes is the Golden Gophers' top prospect, but he also may be one of their least signable, because he's a sophomore-eligible whose father Todd is the team's pitching coach. Not surprisingly, T.J. has a clean delivery and throws strikes. He works mostly with an 88-91 mph sinker and his slider, though he also has the makings of a changeup. At 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, he has room to add velocity.
