- The Athletics have agreed to a deal with second-round pick Tyler Baum, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com was among those to report. Baum’s pick (No. 66) features a $1,003,300 slot value, but the team gave him just $900K, Jim Callis of MLB.com tweets. His agreement means the A’s have now secured their top 11 selections. A right-hander from the University of North Carolina, Baum placed 100th in MLB.com’s pre-draft rankings. Callis and Jonathan Mayo note the 21-year-old Baum didn’t have a great final season at UNC. However, they add that all four of Baum’s pitches can be “solid or better,” potentially setting him up for a career as a No. 4 starter/late-game reliever.
