MLB mock draft 2.0: Who is No. 1?

The MLB draft is less than two weeks away. Is Florida lefty A.J. Puk still expected to be No. 1? How high will Tennessee 3B Nick Senzel go? There's plenty of movement in the first round of Keith Law's mock draft, as teams still have a lot of indecision.

Joc Pederson never left the batter's box area when he flew out to left field; looks like on replay that he thought he hit it foul.

The Dodgers got the ultimate scare in the fifth inning, when Clayton Kershaw's bat broke on contact and the barrel swung around and hit the right side of his head. He appeared to be OK and came out to pitch in the bottom of the inning. The Dodgers already had batting injuries to two other pitchers: Scott Kazmir (wrist) and Alex Wood (triceps).

No pitcher has ever recorded their first 100 strikeouts with as few as five walks, until Clayton Kershaw hit that mark Sunday. The previous best was Cliff Lee in 2010, who hit 100 strikeouts with seven walks. SOURCE: Elias.

The slide rule is a gray area, but the main way to call it in my mind: Use common sense. So good decision there by the umpires. Corey Seager's was clean and not close to dirty, and the Mets had no chance of turning the double play. That's the way it should be called.

Clayton Kershaw worked his way around a leadoff double in the first inning. Mets probably still satisfied with making Kershaw throw 19 pitches in the opening frame.
