Micah Johnson taken in ninth round by White Sox

Indiana junior second baseman Micah Johnson was taken with the 291st overall pick — the 13th in the ninth round — by the Chicago White Sox in the Major League Baseball first-year player draft. Johnson is coming off a season in  which he hit .225 with one home run and 10 RBI, but he hit over .300 in each of his first two seasons and was a preseason All-American this season before surgery to repair an elbow injury. He played in just 24 games, starting 20.
