Over the last few weeks, Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray has had a huge decision to make: play football or stick to baseball?
Oakland, which started spring training workouts Monday, had a locker with a No. 73 jersey waiting for him.

In October, first-year Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury suggested as Texas Tech's head coach that he would take Murray first overall in the upcoming draft.
According to ESPN, Murray will have to return $1.29m of his $1.5m signing bonus and will not receive the remaining $3.16m. If he's selected anywhere in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, he can expect to earn more than twice what he'd have earned with the Athletics' signing bonus; last year's No. 32 overall pick, Lamar Jackson, signed for almost $9.5MM and will earn the entirety of that sum.
Technically, the Athletics will be able to retain the rights to Murray, in the event that he ever has a change of heart or is forced to alter his career path.
