Oakes is exactly what you'd expect from the son of a pitching coach. Todd Oakes has had 18 pitchers drafted (including big leaguers Glen Perkins and John Gaub) during his tenure at the University of Minnesota, including T.J., a 41st-round choice of the Twins a year ago as a 21-year-old sophomore. He'll go 30-35 rounds earlier in 2012, as his fastball has added 2 mph to 90-93. A strong 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds, he can maintain his newfound velocity deep into games and locate his fastball where he wants while cutting, running, sinking and tailing it. His slider and changeup are fringy but he can throw them for strikes.
