Kyler Murray Wants $15 Million To Play For The Oakland A’s

Kyler Murray Wants $15 Million To Play For The Oakland A’s

Declaring for the draft would not necessarily prevent him from starting his baseball career. Since Murray is already technically under contract, no league rules would be broken if the A's were to sign him to a Major League contract now and add him to their 40-man roster. Murray also signed a minor-league contract with the Athletics after Oakland took him with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2018 MLB Amateur Draft that included a $4.66 million signing bonus, and an agreement that allowed the 21-year-old to return to Norman for his junior season on the gridiron with the Sooners. The A's reportedly are expecting Murray to enter the draft, hence the meeting.

In addition, MLB sent marketing executives from the league office to attend the meeting and present information regarding Murray's off-field earning potential, sources told MLB.com's Jon Paul Morosi.

So even if Murray was the last pick in the first round, he actually would bank more guaranteed money than he now has with the A's.

The Athletics drafted Murray ninth overall last summer and gave him a $4.66 million bonus, but allowed him to play football at Oklahoma.

It did not entirely allay fears over Murray's size. Instead, he was the most dynamic player in college football.

The eye-popping news comes in the wake of reports from earlier today from WFAA's Mike Leslie, who heard from a source that Murray wanted $15MM in new money to forego the National Football League for the Athletics.

Thunder Bounce Back, Top Spurs 122-112
With that being said, I think the Thunder bounce back with a statement win at home in this one. "They doubled me in every way". Schroder was one of three Thunder reserves with at least 13 points, and they combined for 47 of the team's 48 off the bench .


But it seems MLB is equally prepared to consider all options to keep Murray in baseball, a sport that is increasingly desperate to grow star players.

Major League Baseball clearly understands Murrays' dynamism.

At the risk of using a trite phrase, Murray could be playing hardball with the A's.
