With the 56th pick in the second round of the 2013 MLB daft, the Dodgers selected left-handed starting pitcher Tom Windle out of University of Minnesota.

Windle is currently 21 and stands in at 6'4 and 210 pounds. During the 2013 campaign, Windle posted a 6-4 record, a 2.14 ERA, while averaging 8.35 strikeouts per nine innings. The highlight of Windle's year was tossing Minnesota's first no hitter in history on March 8 against Western Illinois.

In addition to baseball, Windle played hockey at Osseo (MN) High School.

Keith Law of ESPN said ($): "He's a fastball-changeup guy with a fringy slider, and has an arm-heavy delivery that may project him for the bullpen in the long run. Windle stays tall over the rubber with a moderate stride; a short, choppy arm action; and little hip rotation, meaning he's generating more of his with his arm than with his lower half."

Jonathan Mayo of said: "The Minnesota lefty threw very well in the Cape and was up to 93-94 mph there to go along with a slider and a change up. He was a Cape League All-Star as a result of his performance."

Here is video of Windle from Steve Fiorindo:

The Dodgers' next pick will in the third round Friday at 92 overall.
