2012 MLB Mock Draft: Mets Still Thinking OF David Dahl, Yankees Now Looking At SS Addison Russell?

The New York Mets and Yankees both have first-round picks in the 2012 MLB Draft which begins on Monday. Keith Law of ESPN has his final MLB mock draft up (via ESPN Insider), so let's see which guys he has the Mets and Yankees taking in the first round.

Law likes the Mets to take David Dahl, a centerfielder out of Oak Mountain High School in Birmingham, Ala.. Dahl was also projected to be the Mets' pick at the end of May. Dahl was described as a good all-around athlete with five-tool potential.

The Yankees pick at No. 30 has changed since the end of May. Then, it was third baseman Joey Gallo of Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas. Now, Law projects the Yankees to pick shortstop Addison Russell from Pace High School in Florida. Law is also hearing that the Yanks could go for a pitcher.

The draft itself will begin tonight at 7 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on MLB Network and streamed live on MLB.com.
