(CBS) The White Sox announced today they have signed shortstop Tim Anderson, their first-round pick (17th overall) in the 2013 First-Year Player Draft, to a minor-league contract.

Anderson will receive a $2.164-million bonus.

The 19-year-old Anderson was named a First-Team NJCAA Division II All-American in 2013 at East Central Community College in Decatur, Miss. after leading the nation with a .495 (91-184) average and 62 runs scored.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Anderson, who bats and throws right-handed, added 18 doubles, 11 triples, 10 home runs, 45 RBI, a .563 on-base and .864 slugging percentage for the Diamond Warriors this season.

He is also a finalist for the NJCAA Division II Player of the Year award.
