    After a slow start caused in part by a sore back, Jokisch regained the form that made him one of the top lefties in the Cape Cod League last summer, and he could pass Josh Mueller to become the first Illinois college pitcher drafted. A 6-foot-3, 180-pounder, Jokisch isn't overpowering but has good feel for a three-pitch mix. His changeup is his best offering and could become a true plus pitch, and he sets it up with a fastball that sits at 86-89 mph and a curveball that shows bite at times. He'll have to pitch inside more once he gets to pro ball.
