In Other News…

The A’s have agreed to terms with shortstop Richie Martin, the team’s 1st-round draft pick from this year’s amateur draft. The 20-year-old junior batted .291 with a .399 on-base percentage in 70 games for the University of Florida this season and was the Gators team leader in walks and stolen bases. Look for Martin to join Vermont soon. And with Martin now in the fold, the A’s have now come to terms with their top 13 picks and 31 of their 40 picks from this year’s draft.
