Baseball Recruit Stassi Signs With A's

1

UCLA recruit Max Stassi, a catcher from Yuba City, CA, has decided to bypass college and move on to pro ball. Stassi signed with the Oakland A's for a reported $1.5 million signing bonus, which is more than he was originally asking for. If you remember, Stassi was a projected 1st round pick, but dropped to the 4th round when teams were scared they would not be able to meet his high signing bonus demands. That led to some thought that Stassi may actually go to UCLA, a far fetched idea before the draft. Stassi has bypassed college now and with a signing bonus that is the highest ever for a 4th round pick.

Still no word on why he fell, but BA gives us an idea as to what we can expect from Stassi and his negotiations:: "I don’t know," Stassi said about why he wasn’t selected on the first day of the draft. "I was expecting to go off the board pretty high too. The thing about signability was that I didn’t really put out too high a number. I stuck out a solid number, but I felt it was fine. Whatever happens happens and I’m perfectly fine right now and I’m excited to see what’s coming. Hopefully I’ll be picked on day two." Stassi would not disclose his asking price. "I’m keeping that number close to me and my family and my adviser," he said. "We have a number and I wouldn’t say it’s outrageous, but if I don’t get it, or if they negotiate around it, I’m happy to go to UCLA. Whatever happens happens and I’m happy either way because either way I’ll be playing baseball and furthering my career."
