The Oakland Athletics have announced they have reached terms with 27 of the 40 players selected in the 2015 Amateur Draft, including second rounder Mikey White from the University of Alabama, and prep pitcher Dakota Chalmers of North Forsyth High School in Georgia. Eight of the players selected in the first 10 rounds have officially reached agreements.

So far, the Athletics have announced agreements with:

  • 1 of 5 high school players
  • 0 of 1 college sophomores
  • 12 of 21 college juniors
  • 13 of 13 college seniors and 5th years

Chalmers, Oakland's first high school selection in this draft, is an impressive signing for the Athletics. The Gainesville, Georgia resident had a commitment to the University of Georgia, and his father said his "initial projections fell anywhere between the 30th and 63rd overall pick," his father told the Forsyth County News. Chalmers is still being paid like a draftee between 30 and 63, however:

Oakland's first round selection, shortstop Richie Martin, is playing in the College World Series for the University of Florida, and signing announcements usually wait for the conclusion of the player's college season. Florida is on its way to winning its opening game, leading Miami (FL) 14-3 in the bottom of the seventh inning in Omaha.
