The Oakland Athletics have come to terms with first round draft selection Richie Martin, a shortstop from the University of Florida, the A's announced this afternoon. Bonus figures have not been disclosed for the 20th overall pick, but a signing for his slot value of $2,214,000 would keep the A's within 105 percent of their bonus pool, and would result in only a 75 percent tax on the overage and no loss of any future draft selections.
Richie Martin is in the house today...will be taking BP. #Athletics— Adam Kadourhe (@AdamKadourhe) June 30, 2015
I would imagine, as is tradition for first round draft picks, that Martin will also be visiting the A's broadcast booths during tonight's game.
