The Athletics have agreed to terms with supplemental first-round pick Matt Olson on a $1,079,700 bonus, matching the assigned value for his No. 47 slot.
Olson was a two-way star at Parkview HS (Lilburn, Ga.), which won its second straight Georgia 5-A state title as well as the national championship in 2012. He'll focus on hitting as a pro, as he has the bat to produce for average and power. He also has a strong arm. He had committed to Vanderbilt.
