Boston Takes Clemson Commit Chavis 26th Overall


By Sports Department - Tim Hill

(WOLO) -- Clemson baseball commit Michael Chavis will most likely never suit up for the Tigers. The power-hitting infielder donned a Red Sox jersey Thursday night at the MLB Draft when Boston picked him #26 overall.

Chavis put up eye-popping stats in his senior season as a shortstop at Sprayberry High School in Marietta, GA. He hit .580 with 13 HRs, 37 RBI and stole 21 bases.

Last year's #26 pick earned a signing bonus of more than $1.8 million.
