Rate this Entry
Each week leading up to the MLB draft, I will be providing a roundup of how Big 10 teams fared and how notable players are doing. This player list is by no means exhaustive of all the potential draft candidates and there are likely some listed who will fizzle out, but this is a start.

    TJ Oakes has looked real good since he stepped foot on campus, having your pitching coach as your father must be an interesting dynamic.
