A’s still unsure if Kyler Murray will report to training camp Position players are scheduled to report to training camp on Friday with the Oakland A’s , and the team is still uncertain if first-round pick Kyler Murray will be among them.

When Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray gets to the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis this week, he’ll have some work to do to convince teams he’s made a serious commitment to playing football instead of baseball.

But at least when he gets on the scale, there will be one bit of evidence backing him up.

I just don’t see it. If he refuses to be measured at the Pro Day, that will be telling.
