The A's have agreed to terms with two more draft picks -- Oregon first baseman Ryon Healy and Texas State right-hander Kyle Finnegan --the team announced Monday morning, though, per club policy, terms were disclosed.

As such, Oakland has now signed or agreed to terms with 29 of its 42 draft picks, including first-round pick Billy McKinney, a high school outfielder who went 24th overall and took batting practice at the O.co Coliseum on Friday.

Healy, 21, and an All-Pac-12 pick who led the conference with 11 home runs, was the A's third-round selection after hitting .333 with a school-record 56 RBI in 59 games for the Ducks, including 28 walks and a .408 on-base percentage and a .566 slugging percentage. The right-handed hitter also set a school record with 17 doubles.

Finnegan, meanwhile, was the A's sixth-round pick after he went 5-3 with a 4.66 ERA in 19 appearances, 10 starts, as a junior. His 64 strikeouts were the 10th most on the WAC.
