• Illinois prep lefthander Ian Krol has agreed to terms with the Athletics, who drafted him in the seventh round. Krol missed his senior season due to a suspension and was committed to Arizona. He signed for $925,000.
• The Nationals signed 12th-round pick Nate Karns, who won’t make up for Stephen Strasburg (if he doesn’t sign) but who does have a live arm, with a 91-94 mph fastball. Karns had a strong summer in the Texas Collegiate League, and BA will name him the league’s No. 1 prospect later this week.
Karns’ bonus was not immediately available; we’ll either follow up with blog posts or post the bonuses in the Advanced Draft Database as soon as we know them.
