Athletics To Sign Daniel Robertson

The Athletics have agreed to terms with third baseman Daniel Robertson, according to Jim Callis of Baseball America. Robertson's $1.5MM bonus exactly matches the suggested value for the No. 34 pick.

The high schooler was the club's first of two supplemental first-round picks. Callis writes that Robertson has a quality bat with a chance for average to plus power.  Yesterday we learned that the A's agreed to pay the full $2.625MM bonus for 11th overall pick Addison Russell.

    My favorite pick that the A’s made, guy’s got a real sweet swing and has a strong arm

    Now it’s time to focus on Twomey and Olson while Sanburn is in the CWS

      if the A’s sign Twomey and Olson, I will love that draft.

        Assuming they both sign, that ASL team will be awesome between those three, Russell, De La Cruz, Duinkerk, Nunez, and Powell.

        That’s if they all go there, Robertson might head to Vermont though.
