Indians pick Roberts in 15th round

James Roberts received plenty of playing time during his first two years at USC. He must have impressed the Indians, who selected him in the 15th round of the First-Year Player Draft with overall pick No. 441.

Roberts spent most of his 111 career college games at shortstop. He's hit .281 with 14 doubles, one home run and 39 RBIs, and he stole six bases in 10 attempts.

Roberts, selected by the Giants in the 42nd round of the 2010 Draft, lettered four years in a row at Archbishop Mitty High School in San Jose, Calif.

Roberts is 6-foot-2 and weighs 200 pounds, and he throws and hits right-handed. In 57 career Pac-12 games, he batted .354 with a .376 on-base percentage.
