Major League Baseball bending rules for Kyler Murray, Oakland Athletics to reach deal

Murray was taken by the A's with the No. 9 pick in the 2018 Major League Baseball draft and then went on to play his final season of college football with Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma quarterback has until Monday to declare for the National Football League draft or stick with baseball.
Last week, the Athletics were dealt a huge blow when they found out that Kyler Murray would likely forego playing baseball for them and enter his name into the NFL Draft instead. But what happens after that is where this story truly begins, and may depend on a lot more negotiation and maneuvering, and also on just how the National Football League talent evaluators place him.
Murray is reportedly asking for $15 million to choose baseball or else he'll stick with football, which has more front-end money but pales in comparison to the longevity and potential pay down the line that baseball can offer. Teams are usually barred from giving major league contracts to recently drafted players, as it could be seen as a loophole to MLB's draft bonus pool system.
Obviously, that $15 million ask exceeds that total bonus allotment on its own, and it has already been spent.
The Oakland #Athletics have a contingent, led by president Billy Beane, meeting today with Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray in hopes of persuading him to forego the #NFL and play baseball for them. That would be taking special treatment to a new level, but MLB thinks that highly of Murray and wants him in baseball.
Murray and the A's are set to meet on Sunday to discuss his professional future. I've said for a long time that I think Murray can hang in the NFL, and there's a lot of money to be made as a quarterback in the league. The A's are in a tough spot with the possibility of losing Murray entirely.

Kubiak's zone-run scheme seemed like a ideal fit, much in the way his offense fit seventh-round pick Justin Forsett in Baltimore. After one year away from football, Kubiak returned to the Broncos as an executive in 2017.
If Dozier can bring his average back up and continue hitting for power, he should be a nice addition to Washington's lineup. Even with a disappointing.215 average last season, Dozier still managed to hit 21 home runs and 30 doubles.
