Oakland A's Desperately Trying To Dissuade Kyler Murray From Entering NFL Draft

  • Oakland A's Desperately Trying To Dissuade Kyler Murray From Entering NFL Draft

Murray was taken by the A's with the No. 9 pick in the 2018 Major League Baseball draft and then went on to play his final season of college football with Oklahoma. The A's allowed him to return to the University of Oklahoma, where he put up historic numbers at quarterback and won the Heisman. He'd signed with the Oakland A's as their first-round pick in June's baseball draft (ninth overall), agreeing to a $4.66 million bonus that came with the stipulation that the A's would not stand in the way of him playing football in 2018. It just gets complicated to make that raise happen.

Obviously, that $15 million ask exceeds that total bonus allotment on its own, and it has already been spent. Whatever sport he chooses, Murray, 21, will need to begin training for it sooner than later.

Kyler Murray reportedly wants a ton of cash to stick with the Oakland A's over entering the National Football League draft.

Stocks rise on U.S.-China trade hope; oil prices soar
The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 0.5 percent to 24,001.92 and the Nasdaq composite was up 0.4 percent at 6,986.07. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude also lost 1.7 per cent, or 88 cents, trading at $51.71 a barrel.


So, either something is off with that $15 million figure or Boras has something allowed under MLB guidelines in the works (i.e. Murray having a full-on MLB-level salary as a minor leaguer after exhausting that $1,100 per month maximum in his first minor-league season). Vice president of baseball operations Billy Beane and general manager David Forst were among the A's leading representatives.

It did not entirely allay fears over Murray's size. As Bill Shaikin of the L.A. Times notes (Twitter link), Major League Baseball wouldn't believe that Murray and the A's were in violation of the draft pool system with this new contract unless the league felt such a handshake agreement for more money was made last summer, before Murray was originally signed.
