Athletics Agree To Terms With Matt Olson

The A's have agreed to terms with supplementary first-round pick Matt Olson, according to a team release.  Olson, a high school first baseman, was taken with the 47th overall pick, which the A's received as compensation for David DeJesus signing with the Cubs last winter.  No financial details were announced but Baseball America's Jim Callis reports (Twitter link) that Olson's deal matches the MLB-recommended bonus price of slightly under $1.08MM for the 47th overall selection.

Oakland also confirmed that Daniel Robertson, another supplemental first-rounder, had agreed to terms.  Jim Callis reported earlier this week that the two sides had agreed to a $1.5MM bonus that matched Robertson's recommended price as the 34th overall selection.  The A's also agreed to terms with three more picks --- Melvin Mercedes (16th round), Derek DeYoung (18th) and Tyler Johnson (33rd) --- to bring their total of signed picks to 31 out of 43 drafted players.
