Indiana junior second baseman Micah Johnson, a third-team preseason All-American, was slated to have elbow surgery today that could sideline him for the remainder of the season, though he hopes to return in May.
Johnson returned from the Cape Cod League last summer with soreness in his elbow, and the pain never subsided as the Hoosiers hoped, and he went just 3-for-21 as the team's DH this year.
"Realistically, I don't know what that bodes for us in terms of us getting him back this season or not," Indiana coach Tracy Smith told the Indiana Daily Student. "We will see how it goes with his rehab. He is going to go ahead and take care of it now and get himself right because it was a declining performance for him based on how he was feeling."
Johnson hit .335/.402/.474 with 19 stolen bases in 22 tries as a sophomore last year, and his quick-twitch athleticism helped him rank No. 92 in BA's preseason College Top 100 Prospects list for the 2012 draft.
