Draft Day 2 in the booksThe Dodgers took seven players on Day 2 of the amateur draft, one each in rounds four through 10.Fourth-round pick Philip Pfeifer, a left-handed pitcher from Vanderbilt, is a teammate of first-round pick Walker Buehler.The others were Yavapai College (Ariz.) infielder Willie Calhoun (fourth round), Lakewood High School infielder Brendon Davis (fifth round), Florida International University first baseman Edwin Rios (sixth round), Gonzaga University right-hander Andrew Sopko (seventh round), Haverford College (Pa.) right-hander Tommy Bergjans (eighth round), Cal State Dominguez Hills right-hander Kevin Brown (ninth round) and University of Texas Pan American outfielder Logan Landon (10th round).Bergjans is a graduate of Los Angeles’ Loyola High School. Brown is a graduate of Newbury Park High School.Injury updatesOutfielder Scott Van Slyke said he will go out on a rehab assignment before returning from the 15-day disabled list. He is eligible to be activated Monday, when the Dodgers visit the Texas Rangers, and might do so if he completes his rehab stint this weekend.Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that Carl Crawford (oblique) has resumed running at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz., a significant step forward for the veteran outfielder.“Unless he has some kind of a setback, he’s probably going to be doing more and more every day,” Mattingly said.Pitchers Brandon League (Wednesday) and Joel Peralta (Thursday) are scheduled to make rehab appearances for Single-A Rancho Cucamonga this week. Pitcher Brandon Beachy is scheduled to throw a simulated game Thursday at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz.All-Star voting updateDodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is second to the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Paul Goldschmidt in the latest fan voting update for the 2015 All-Star Game. Gonzalez — who had been in the lead since the first votes were released to the public — now has 1,882,725 votes to Goldschmidt’s 2,010,049.After a scorching start to the season, Gonzalez now trails Goldschmidt in all of the most widely used statistical categories: home runs (16 to 11), RBIs (47 to 39), batting average (.340 to .329), on-base percentage (.466 to .407) and slugging percentage (.650 to .589). Goldschmidt even has a better WAR (3.8 to 2.7)The next vote tallies will be released June 23 and June 30. The game is July 12.Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal moved into fifth place among National League catchers, while Howie Kendrick is fourth among second basemen. Joc Pederson is 10th among outfielders. Baffert is also riding a different wave since his last ceremonial first pitch in 2002, a wave no trainer has experienced in a generation. American Pharoah, who won the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, is the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978.This horse did not make Baffert a household name; he already was one. American Pharoah has merely made him speechless.“I really didn’t realize the impact of it until it hit me, probably, yesterday,” he said. “Since this happened, it’s totally different … I’m still waiting for it to die down.”Horse racing and baseball don’t overlap much, but Baffert conversed with the umpires prior to the game. Apparently, he also knows enough about baseball to know which Dodgers player is nicknamed the “Wild Horse.”“(American Pharoah) is the nicest horse you’d ever be around, but then when he gets to the racetrack he wants to dominate,” Baffert said. “I guess he’d be like (Yasiel) Puig. When he gets out there he’s gonna dominate.” Bob Baffert has done the baseball crossover publicity tour before. He threw a ceremonial first pitch in Baltimore in 1997, after Silver Charm won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. Since then, Baffert has thrown enough first pitches (and trained enough champion horses) that it hardly seemed like a first when he did so Tuesday at Dodger Stadium.But this one was different for a few reasons. Like many Arizona natives, Baffert grew up rooting for the Dodgers, and this was his first time on the mound at Dodger Stadium.“There was no Diamondbacks when I grew up,” he said.
