Sean Johnson earns shot with Houston Astros after career at Ole Miss

Astros give Durango’s Johnson free agent contract
Sean Johnson of Durango recovered from Tommy John surgery and worked his way back onto the mound for Ole Miss. After graduating in May, Johnson was unsure of the next step of his career until the Houston Astros offered him a rookie league contract as an undrafted free agent Tuesday.
Durango’s Sean Johnson earned a chance to play in one of college baseball’s greatest venues, LSU’s Alex Box Stadium in Baton Rouge, La. “There is no place like it,” Johnson said. “They have the guy in the stands getting chants going, and even warming up there are people screaming out you trying to get you to throw anything but a strike. It was a lot of fun.”
Sean Johnson of Durango enjoyed every moment of his three years in Oxford, Mississippi, as he played for the Ole Miss Rebels. Now, he has earned a chance to come up through the Houston Astros organization.
