Dunno if this has been posted, but I don't see a diary on it, so here you go.
"The A's announced that they have signed their second-round selection from the 2005 First-Year Player Draft, right-handed pitcher Craig Italiano.
Italiano, who attended Flower Mound High School in Texas, was selected with the second round pick of the Milwaukee Brewers as compensation for the loss of free agent Damian Miller. Italiano, whom A's scouting director Eric Kubota said had "maybe the best high school arm in the country this year," will report to rookie ball in Arizona.
The A's have signed 29 of their first 33 selections from the draft."
Good news. Now, if we can just convince Smoak to join our new crowd...
