MLB draft 2015 latest update: Dansby Swanson dominates day 1  

SECAUCUS, N.J. — It didn’t take long for a theme to emerge at Major League Baseball’s 2015 First-Year Player Draft. The Arizona Diamondbacks led off with Vanderbilt shortstop Dansby Swanson. The Houston Astros picked Louisiana State shortstop Alex Bregman in the second spot, and the Colorado Rockies went with Florida high school shortstop Brendan Rodgers at No. 3.

Maybe that trio won’t resurrect the glory days of Ozzie Smith, Cal Ripken Jr. and Alan Trammell, or bring to mind the Derek Jeter-Nomar Garciaparra-Alex Rodriguez contingent in the 1990s. But if things play out as hoped, they at least might prevent the impact, American-born shortstop from becoming an endangered species.
