NEW YORK — The sons of former big-leaguers Lenny Dykstra and Charlie Leibrandt were among the players selected Friday during the second day of the Major League Baseball draft.

Luke Dykstra, an infielder at Westlake High School in suburban Los Angeles, was drafted in the seventh round by Atlanta. He’s the second son of the former All-Star outfielder to be drafted; infielder Cutter Dykstra was a second-round pick by Milwaukee in 2008 and is currently in Washington’s system.

“He’s just like his dad,” Braves scouting director Tony DeMacio told MLB.com, referring to Luke Dykstra. “He plays with his hair on fire.”

Florida State left-hander Brandon Leibrandt went in the sixth round to Philadelphia. He was 4-1 with a 1.83 earned-run average this season.

BALTIMORE — Johan Santana’s comeback bid with the Baltimore Orioles ended when the two-time Cy Young Award winner tore his Achilles tendon. The injury occurred in Florida while Santana was pitching in extended spring training. He was struck by a line drive before stumbling in pursuit of the ball.

Notes

• Boston Red Sox hitting coach Greg Colbrunn, 44, is expected to stay hospitalized for at least another week after he had bleeding in the area between his brain and the thin tissues covering it.

• The Baltimore Orioles placed right-hander Miguel Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list rather than risk sending him to the mound with a strained right oblique.

• The Cleveland Indians activated catcher Carlos Santana from the seven-day disabled list.
