Four Clemson players heard their names called Thursday during the last round of the Major League Baseball draft.
Clemson second baseman Mike Freeman was drafted the highest Thursday, taken by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Arizona chose Freeman on the final day of the draft in the 36th round with the 1,086th overall pick. Freeman went undrafted Wednesday after turning down several offers between rounds 5-10, his dad, Bill, said.
The junior this season was third on the team in batting with a .328 average, tied for the team lead in runs scored (60) and second in hits (88).
Other Clemson players drafted Thursday include:
-- Matt Sanders, 3B, 41st round (No. 1,231), Colorado Rockies
-- Clint McKinney, RHP, 48th round (No. 1,441), Colorado Rockies
-- Addison Johnson, OF, Clemson, 48th round (No. 1,443), Oakland Athletics
Several of his teammates and a Clemson signee were drafted Wednesday: freshman left-hander Chris Dwyer; redshirt sophomore pitcher Graham Stoneburner; and senior pitchers Ryan Hinson and Trey Delk; and Mauldin High right-hander Madison Younginer, a Clemson commitment.
