Dodgers go with bloodlines, take Law in Round 12

Brigham Young infielder Adam Law became the third Dodgers Draft pick this year with Major League bloodlines when Los Angeles selected him in the 12th round of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft on Saturday.

Law's father, Vance, was also an infielder during an 11-year career from 1980-91 and was an All-Star with the Chicago Cubs in 1988. Law's grandfather, Vernon, debuted with the Pirates in 1950 and won the 1960 Cy Young Award. The right-hander won 162 games during a 16-year career with Pittsburgh.

While Law was primarily a shortstop and second baseman with BYU, the Dodgers drafted him as a third baseman.

As a junior this season, Law led the Cougars with a .365 batting average, 76 hits, 14 stolen bases and a .440 on-base percentage. He also had 10 doubles, four triples, four home runs and 46 RBIs in 53 games with a .510 slugging percentage.

Law was a co-captain with BYU this season and was named to the All-West Coast Conference First Team by the league's coaches.
