UF junior ace Logan Shore signed with the Oakland Athletics, who drafted him with their second-round pick in last month's MLB draft. The righty agreed to a $1.5 million deal, signing over slot.

Shore will likely join UF teammate AJ Puk in Vermont with the A's Single-A affiliate. His deal means that all eight Gators drafted last month have signed professional contracts, totaling $10,955,800.

Puk signed for $4.5 million, Dane Dunning agreed with the Washington Nationals for $2 million, Buddy Reed signed with the San Diego Padres for $1.075 million, Pete Alonso signed with the New York Mets for $909,200, the Boston Red Sox and Shaun Anderson agreed at $700,000, Scott Moss signed with the Cincinnati Reds for $577,400 and Kirby Snead agreed to a $125,000 deal with the Toronto Blue Jays.
