Draft Talk

Just thought I'd put out a diary for those of us who follow the minor league portion of our beloved A's to consolidate info on the newest additions.

So far 13 of the 50 or so draft picks have signed.  The most notable being our 6th round pick Scott Hodsdon, a right handed pitcher from Azusa Pacific, the same school as Jimmy Shull and (I think) Jason Ray.

With short season ball in Vancouver starting up on Tuesday, we should start to see some of these guys playing fairly quickly.  Hodsdon is apparently allready on his way.

For those interested in all the signed picks, the others are righty Brent Lysander (16th round, Sonoma State), shortstop Matt Ray (18th, Middle Tennessee State), catcher Michael Napoleon (19th, Iowa), outfielder Dan Wentzell (20th, George Fox), outfielder James Pruitt (23rd, Montevallo), third baseman Justin Frash (27th, Hawaii), righty Charles Kerfoot (30th, Delaware), lefty Rosalio Gomez (31st, Rockford College), righty Bryan Collins (32nd, Central Missouri State), righty John Quine (33rd, San Francisco), catcher Ben Barrone (44th, Winona State) and outfielder Adam Klein (48th, Cal State Los Angeles).
