Shortstop Bohn taken at top of seventh round

The Marlins selected shortstop Justin Bohn with the 202nd overall pick in the 2013 First-Year Player Draft on Friday.

"Bohn is a real solid, plus runner, plus arm, solid defensive guy," Stan Meek, Miami's vice president of scouting, said. "We'll see how much the bat comes along."

Bohn recently signed with Oregon State after spending two outstanding seasons at Feather River College in Quincy, Calif. He was named the Golden Valley Conference Player of the Year for a second consecutive season after leading the Golden Eagles with 30 stolen bases and 39 runs scored.

Bohn, a former first-team All-American, ranked second on Feather River with a .335 batting average, a .412 on-base percentage and a .483 slugging percentage.

He joins an organization with several young, talented middle infielders.

The Marlins have used 23-year-old Derek Dietrich and 25-year-old Donovan Solano at second base this season. Starting shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, a rookie, is 24 years old.
