Getting To Know: The A’s 2012 Top 10 Draft Picks

Yesterday, we gave you the lowdown on the A’s top 3 picks selected on Day 1 of the draft.

The team evenly divided its top 10 picks by selecting 5 high school players and 5 college players, while selecting 6 hitters and 4 pitchers. We’ll be learning more about all of them in the coming days and will hopefully have the chance to see some of them playing for the Vermont Lake Monsters in the short-season New York-Penn League before the month is through.
