The White Sox have signed 6th round draft pick SS Marcus Semien. Semien is listed on the Kannapolis Intimidators roster. He played shortstop against Asheville tonight and went 1-4 with a 2B and 2 K.

Bats: R
Throws: R
Height: 6’01″
Weight: 190
Born: 1990-09-17
Hometown: El Cerrito, CA
Class:  Junior

Here’s his Baseball America scouting report:

Semien is a steady defender with sure hands and some arm strength, though he may lack the first-step quickness to stay at shortstop. He’s an average runner. He hit well last year and in the Northwoods League last summer, but scouts have questions about his bat. He didn’t do anything to quell doubters this year, hitting .260/.357/.380.

And from John Sickels:

6) Marcus Semien, SS, California: Teammate of Johnson drafted above, good glove, many scouts don’t like his bat and he didn’t hit well this spring. Seems an overdraft to me.

Here are his College Stats:
