Aside from the obvious bloodlines, draft followers were generally shocked when the Dodgers selected Don Mattingly's son with the 31st overall pick on Tuesday. But Logan White had a pretty good answer when asked why Preston Mattingly wasn't included in Baseball America's Top 200 potential draftees. "Russell Martin and Matt Kemp weren't in anybody's top 200 when we took them," said White, who drafted Martin and Kemp in his first two drafts as Dodgers scouting director and has seen them make Major League impacts this year. "We knew [Mattingly would] go in the second or third round. He's got great bloodlines. He's a high-ceiling kid, one of the best athletes in the draft."
