LSU pitcher Alex Lange and outfielder Greg Deichmann have been selected Monday night during the first day of the 2017 MLB Draft. He has a 9-5 record and a 2.92 ERA in 111 innings while limiting opponents to a.233 batting average. The right-hander from Lee's Summit, Mo. was a first-team All-SEC pitcher, a freshman All-American and the SEC Freshman of the Year in 2015. Commanding a fastball that tops off in the mid-90s and a wipeout 12-6 curveball capable of freezing batters at the knees, Lange has started at LSU for three seasons and helped lead the Tigers to two College World Series.

Gareth Southgate challenge for England Under-20 side
England defender Jake Clarke-Salter was ruled to have brought down Penaranda inside the area, a decision confirmed by the video assistant referee .

Deichmann was the 29th LSU player to earn first-team All-America honors, and he is the 11th first-team All-American during the 11-season tenure of coach Paul Mainieri.

Trump proposes privatizing air traffic control
The plan drew immediate support from most airlines, but faces stiff opposition from private aviation groups and in Congress. The proposal is being dismissed as one of Trump's eccentric obsessions, though Al Gore supported a version in the 1990s.

Deichmann, the Metaire native and former Brother Martin standout, has provided the power in the LSU lineup this season, batting.320 with 19 HR'S and 72 RBI's after the Tigers most recent series against Mississippi State. He is No. 2 in the SEC this season in RBI, No. 3 in homers, No. 4 in total bases (146) and No. 5 in slugging percentage (.606). Added to that the fact that the designated hitter is available and Oakland tends to have a lot of roster turnover, Deichmann can really get to the majors relatively early should he continue with his current improvement trajectory and has a chance to become the face of the franchise that desperately needs one. The New Orleans native was selected in the 26 round by the Minnesota Twins previous year.

Queen's Speech date in UK Parliament in doubt
However, when asked about whether the Brexit talks would start for real on June 19 as planned, Winterstein said: "I can not say". He also said that there should be "some agreement on the immigration that we can accept from Europe".
