A's Sign Stassi
Oakland has done just that, as the A's have reportedly spent $1.5 million to sign Stassi, according to Baseball America. The team announced Stassi's signing without releasing terms. The $1.5 million figure was the one that had been bandied about since draft day and, if accurate, is a new record for a fourth-round bonus.
Stassi appears to be well-worth the extra dough. He hit .538 with 11 homeruns during his senior season of high school and is considered one of the best hitting catchers to come out of high school in this draft.
The A's are continuing to negotiate with other unsigned picks, most notably first-round pick Grant Green. They have until 9pm Pacific to get the deals done.
