OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Athletics signed first-round pick Grant Green to a contract just before Monday's deadline for signing drafted players.

Green was the 13th overall pick in June's draft. He played shortstop for Southern California, hitting .374 with 19 doubles, five triples, four home runs and 32 RBIs last season.

The A's earlier signed fourth-round pick Max Stassi, a catcher from Yuba City, to a contract with a $1.5 million bonus. They also signed lefty Ian Krol, their seventh-round selection.
