Yesterday, we gave you the lowdown on the A’s top 3 picks selected on Day 1 of the amateur draft. And now that Day 2 is complete, it’s time to run down the A’s top 12 picks of the 2013 draft.

Though the A’s took a high school player with their top pick again this year, only 3 of the team’s top 12 picks were high school players, while 9 came from the college ranks. And though 3 of the A’s first 4 picks were hitters, the team took a total of only 4 hitters in the top 12, while picking 8 pitchers. And exactly half of the team’s top 12 picks were college pitchers, evenly divided between 3 right-handers and 3 left-handers.

We’ll be learning a lot more about all the A’s top picks in the coming days and should be getting the chance to see most of them playing for the Vermont Lake Monsters or the Arizona League A’s before the month is through. So stay tuned to A’s Farm to see how the A’s latest batch of top prospects pans out!

    Pittsburg State University is in Pittsburg, Kansas. Note correct spelling. Only the one in Pennsylvania has an “h” on the end.
