The A’s have signed Pepperdine righthander Brett Hunter for $1.1 million, a draft record for a seventh-rounder. Hunter projected as an early first-round pick before injuring his elbow in his second start of the year. After missing most of the college season, he returned to pitch with Team USA’s college team this summer.
