A's Sign Sonny Gray

The Oakland A's have signed first-round pick Sonny Gray, a right-hander out of Vanderbilt, for a bonus of $1.54 million. Gray's bonus just barely exceeds MLB's recommended bonus of $1.422 million for the No. 28 pick.

Gray is only listed at 5'11", but throws his fastball in the mid 90's and dominated college hitters for three years at the head of the Vanderbilt rotation. Oakland has decided to push Gray quickly through the minors and is planning on sending him to Double-A Midland next week.
