A's pick up two-time CIAA player of the year

In 'gee,that was random' news, Oakland has signed a free agent outfielder out of Elizabeth City State University, ahead of the draft. Carlos Gutierrez set school records in runs scored, batting average, doubles, triples, dingers and more, and was apparently offered a deal after A's scouts saw him play just one time.

He hit .548 this year (!).

"He has the ability and a good track record which is why we wanted to sign him. With the kind of numbers he has put up, he is definitely the type of player that is deserving of an opportunity. We are happy that he will not be around for another team to draft in June," [says A's scout Neil Avent].

He's headed to Vancouver.
