Height: 5-11   Weight: 185   Hometown: Marietta, GA (Sprayberry HS)   Class: 2014

Clemson baseball signee Micheal Chavis was taken in the first round of the MLB draft by the Boston Red Sox on Thursday night. The shortstop from Marietta, GA was the 26th overall pick. The 2014 allotment for the 26th pick according to Baseball America is $1,870,500.


Chavis told the Boston media that he is "fairly comfortable" that he is ready to start his pro career.


MLB Draft scouting report on Chavis:

While Chavis doesn't wow scouts with any single aspect of his game, he could develop into a player with solid tools across the board. He also offers interesting versatility, as he could play the middle infield if he attends college at Clemson, profiles best as a third baseman in pro ball, also has seen some time in the outfield and might even get a shot at catcher. Known as more of a line-drive hitter, he surprisingly won the home run derby at the Perfect Game All-American Classic, beating out noted prep sluggers such as Braxton Davidson, Michael Gettys and Alex Jackson. Chavis consistently makes hard contact at the plate and projects as a possible .275 hitter with 18-20 homers in his prime in the big leagues. Chavis has the arm strength to play anywhere in the infield. While he may have enough quickness to play second base or shortstop, he likely will wind up at the hot corner.
