OAKLAND [url=][/url] , Calif. (AP) The Oakland Athletics remain hopeful of seeing Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray in their uniform when spring training begins next month.While the Oklahoma quarterback declared for the NFL draft last week, the prized outfielder and 2018 first-round draft pick could report to As spring training in Mesa, Arizona. He has an invite to big league camp.As were sitting here right now we expect him to be in spring training, As manager Bob Melvin said Friday, a day before the clubs Fan Fest. Now, look, he has opened up some doors for himself that the world is literally his oyster right now, and I will be for whatever he chooses to do. The football thing, you win the Heisman Trophy and you get drafted in the first round, how often does that happen? He is that type of athlete and hes going to have a great career in whatever he chooses to do [url=]Sparky Anderson Jersey[/url] , and we will support whatever he chooses to do. But at this point in time we havent heard anything different and Im expecting him to be in spring training. If something changes in the meantime then we deal with it.On Jan. 13, representatives of the As and Major League Baseball met with Murrayl.Wed love to have him. Hes invited to spring training. Were hoping hes there, As general manager David Forst said. Hes an incredible young man and would be a great asset for the As. We made it clear to Kyler how much wed like to have him here and how great a baseball player we think he could be.The 5-foot-10, 195-pound Murrays Sooners lost in a college football playoff semifinal Dec. 29 to eventual runner-up Alabama.Drafted last June with the ninth overall pick, the outfielder signed with Oakland for a $4.66 million bonus, of which $1.5 million was paid last summer within 30 days of the deals approval by the commissioners office. The remaining $3.16 million is due on March 1.There was an agreement between the team and Murray that he would play football last year, then skip his senior season to begin his pro baseball career. Melvin as well as executive Billy Beane and Forst closely followed Oklahoma football in 2018.Murray showed off his skills taking batting practice at the Coliseum in an As uniform back in June, greeted by WELCOME TO OAKLAND on the big scoreboard with his photo.In football this past season, he completed 260 of 377 passes for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns with seven interceptions and a passer rating of 199.2. He also rushed for 1 [url=]Jack Morris Jersey[/url] ,001 yards and 12 TDs.Youve got to separate there. When he comes and plays baseball the football thing is good stories for the guys. Its all about performing in baseball, thats kind of where my focus will be, Melvin said. Its a phenomenal athlete if you take a step back and look what hes accomplished. SEATTLE (AP) Jerry Dipoto thought he was done making deals a day before the non-waiver trade deadline after remodeling the Seattle Mariners bullpen.The Mariners ever-active baseball boss just couldnt help himself when an outfield upgrade became available.Seattle acquired outfielder Cameron Maybin fr om the Miami Marlins on Tuesday, giving the Mariners a boost going into the final two months of the regular season. Seattle landed Maybin in exchange for minor league infielder Bryson Brigman and international bonus pool allotment.Dipoto said he first had discussions with the Marlins about Maybin about two weeks ago, but it took the non-waiver trade deadline to get a deal finalized.He fits into the theme of what were doing and adds better balance to our club. And the experience of a guy who has been through it as long as Cam has doesnt hurt, Dipoto said.Center field was the one obvious position wh ere Seattle could use an upgrade. Since moving Dee Gordon to second base, Guillermo Heredia has seen the majority of the time in center. And while Heredia is outstanding defensively, his bat hasnt provided much to Seattles lineup. Heredia is hitting .229 with a .314 on-base percentage and 22 runs scored. Heredia was batting .302 on May 29, but his average has taken a nosedive. In the past 51 games played, Heredia is hitting just .184.Maybin has been the opposite offensively. Maybin is batting .251 with three homers and 20 RBIs in 99 games this season [url=]Michael Fulmer Jersey[/url] , but hes batting .329 with a .912 OPS since June 29. The Mariners are the seventh team for the 12-year veteran, who has a $3.25 million, one-year contract. Maybin also has postseason experience, playing in the World Series last year with Houston. Seattle entered the day two games ahead of Oakland for the second wild-card in the American League and three games behind the Astros in the AL West.Seattle is hopeful Maybin will be able to join the club Wednesday, and he was the last of Seattles four trades in the days leading up to the deadline. Seattle also acquired relief pitchers Sam Tuivailala, Adam Warren and Zach Duke in a trio of deals.I think weve helped the team a lot, Seattle manager Scott Servais said. Every manager out there wants more pieces in the bullpen, certainly. As you get going into games in August and September and workloads start to mount up on pitchers you tend to go to the bullpen a little earlier and you want guys who have experience or have stuff or a combination. I think weve done some nice things.The acquisition of Maybin will likely put to rest any thought of moving Gordon back to center late in the season following the return of Robinson Cano from his 80-game suspension for violating baseballs joint drug agreement. Dipoto said the intent was to leave Gordon at second base, but that he may see occasional time in the outfield. Getting Maybin means Cano will be moving around to positions other than second base once he returns.Brigman is batting .304 this year for Class A Modesto. He was a third-round pick in 2016 but hasnt played above Class A.
