Mark Adamiak becomes the latest Hog to sign his first professional contract in the MLB.
Adamiak went to the Oakland Athletics in the 15th round of the 2022 MLB Draft, a part of nine Razorbacks selected. During the MLB Draft League, Adamiak hit 97 miles-per-hour on the gun with his fastball and a consistent slider in the mid-80s.

The A’s signed the 21-year-old for $125k with no slot value.
The redshirt sophomore didn’t play any games in 2022 due to injury. In his freshman year, he appeared in 11 games for the Razorback, claiming two wins and 20 strikeouts in 15 innings.
The only Razorback remaining to sign after last week’s draft is third baseman Cayden Wallace, who was drafted 49th overall by the Kansas City Royals in the second round.
The deadline for drafted players to sign is Aug. 1.
