Johnston Ready for Instructs

Dylan Johnston is looking to get his feet back under him in the Cubs' annual Instructional League after missing the last two months of the season at Class-A Peoria. (Windows Media Player recommended for listening.)

The 19-year-old shortstop thought he was ready for full-season competition at Peoria when he broke spring camp back in early April. But Johnston hit only .200 in 58 games before an ankle injury sidelined him on July 9.

Two months after the injury, the Cubs' fourth-round pick from Hamilton High School in Chandler, Ariz., in 2005 is with the organization in the Instructional League in Mesa.
