Jemile Weeks is close to signing, and Inoa has made more than Duke.

 

Weeks likely to sign today: The A's are close to coming to terms with their top pick (12th overall) in the June draft, University of Miami second baseman Jemile Weeks, and they could announce that he has signed as soon as today, according to several sources.

Weeks, who is the younger brother of Milwaukee's Rickie Weeks, will get a signing bonus in the $2 million range.

 

Duchscherer, 30, has been playing professional baseball since he was 18 and he has not had a contract of more than one year. He noted that 16-year-old Dominican right-hander Michael Inoa, who got a $4.25 million bonus from Oakland last week, "has already made more than I have in my whole career. I'm not complaining, obviously, but the security (of a multiyear deal) would be nice."
