A’s 2012 Draft Picks Mid-Season Progress Report

arfPCk2bFI5Last week we offered a progress report on the A’s top 12 picks from the 2013 amateur draft. And it seemed like it might be interesting to take a similar look at the A’s top 12 picks from the 2012 amateur draft. Of course, that draft class featured some of the A’s most high-profile prospects like Addison Russell, Daniel Robertson and Matt Olson.

The A’s chose to be aggressive with shortstop Russell’s development this season and assigned him to Stockton, making the 19-year-old the youngest player in the High-A California League. Last year’s top pick for the A’s struggled over the first couple months of the season, but then he began to turn things around in June, and he ended up posting an impressive .344/.440/.609 slash line in July.

The A’s 7th overall pick last season, outfielder B.J. Boyd, started the year with Vermont of the Class-A short-season New York-Penn League, so he didn’t get going until June – but ever since he got going, there’s been no stopping him, and the outfielder’s currently sporting a .321/.406/.506 slash line after a month and a half of play.

The fastest-riser of last year’s draft class has been the A’s 8th overall pick, first baseman Max Muncy, who started the season with Russell at Stockton but made it all the way up to Double-A Midland just a little over a year after first being drafted by Oakland. And Muncy currently tops all A’s minor leaguers in home runs with 21 and RBIs with 83.

A couple of the top pitching picks from last year’s draft, right-handers Seth Streich and Dakota Bacus, have proven to be the two most reliable members of the Beloit Snappers starting rotation this season. Unfortunately, fellow right-hander Cody Kurz, last year’s 10th pick, has spent the season rehabbing from knee surgery and has yet to make an appearance on the mound.

You’ll find the A’s top 12 draft picks from the 2012 draft along with their current statistics through August 5 below. The teams they’ve played for so far this season are noted, with the team they’ve appeared in the most games with listed first and their current team in bold. So let’s take a look at the top picks of the A’s 2012 farm crop…
