Thought he was an "A" farmhand from the getgo? :-)

THis from baseball-reference.com on Jose's page:

June 7, 1982: Drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the 15th round of the 1982 amateur draft. ;-)
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.

That's odd. You're right! I remember reading an article about how many guys the Yanks lost, and he was one of them.

Maybe the guy was stretching it, saying they had a potential deal to trade for him as a prospect or something.
