DeMichele hit .336/.398/.548 with six home runs and 47 RBI for Arizona State in 2012. He led the team in batting average (.336), stolen bases (12) and triples (7). By signing a pro contract, DeMichele has given up his final year of college eligibility.

The White Sox signed DeMichele for $41,100 below slot value, which means they can now disperse that money to other draftees (if they choose to do so).
