According to MLBTR, Addison Russell is set to sign as well.

Quote:
First round selection Addison Russell told Jason Blakeney of the Pensacola News Journal that he has decided to sign with the Athletics. Russell, the 11th overall selection in last week's draft, will fly to California this week, and advisor Scott Boras will finalize his contract.

"It's a once in a lifetime opportunity," Russell said. "Being part of a big league club and being an affiliate of the Oakland A's is a dream come true."

Russell didn't reveal the specifics of his deal with the A's, saying only that they "offered [him] a good chunk of change.” MLB recommends a bonus of $2.625MM for the 11th overall selection, according to Baseball America.

Russell, a high school shortstop, became the first prep player selected by Oakland in the first round since 2001. While some teams wanted to move him to third base, the A's told him he can continue playing shortstop for the time being.

Now we just have Olson, Twomey, Sanburn, Muncy and Bacus to sign and then we have all of our draft picks signed from the 1st 10 rounds.

At least we signed our top draft pick, unlike the Pirates.

Still, the A's are very successful in signing their draftees, specifically their early round picks. Good draft. Now lets hope some of these guys pan out in the pros.
