Why the A’s drafted another catching prospect with their first round pick

By Jesus Cano Correspondent

OAKLAND — A’s first-round draft pick Daniel Susac got to soak it all in on Tuesday evening at the Coliseum.

The 21-year-old Sacramento native got paid handsomely, chatted up with players he grew up watching and was launching home runs in front of his family during batting practice.

Susac soaked in the excitement next to the batting cage on Tuesday before the A’s played the Astros all by himself, but when it comes to being a heralded catching prospect in the A’s farm system, he’s hardly alone.

The A’s have accumulated quite a bit of talented catching depth in their minor league system. It starts at the top on the major league roster with homegrown talent and Gold Glove Award winner Sean Murphy, who is under control through 2026.
