MLB Draft 2014: Dodgers select Trevor Oaks in 7th round

California Baptist University

The Dodgers have taken four college pitchers in five rounds on Friday.

NEW YORK, NY -- The Dodgers on Friday selected right-handed pitcher Trevor Oaks out of Cal Bpatist with their seventh-round pick in the 2014 MLB Draft, pick No. 219 overall. The club has taken five pitchers in the first seven rounds, including four college pitchers in five round on Friday.

The 6'4, 220-pound right-hander is a Riverside native who went to Woodcrest Christian High School. Oaks, like fourth-round pick Jeff Brigham, had Tommy John surgery in 2012 and missed a year.

Oaks pitched one season for Biola University, then transferred to Cal Baptist, where he was 11-0 with a 1.68 ERA in 15 starts, with 107 strikeouts and 31 walks in 107 innings.

MLB.com rated Oaks as the 199th-best prospect, and called him "one of the best pitchers in Division II baseball this season, using a four-pitch mix to dominate opponents. His fastball can touch the low-90s, but sits around 89-90 mph. He throws it with good sink, inducing many ground ball outs. Oaks throws both a curve and slider, both of which flash as average pitches. His changeup has good fade to it."

Oaks was named both PacWest and NCBWA West Region Pitcher of the Year in 2014.

Baseball America rated Oaks as its 444th-best prospect, adding, "His best pitch is a heavy sinker that ranges from 87-92 mph, and keeps hitters on their toes by mixing in three serviceable but below-average secondary pitches: a curveball, slider and changeup."

The slot value for the No. 219 overall pick is $166,600.
