Rays' John Jaso gets a rest vs. lefty on Wednesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/22/15) With the Rays set to face a left-hander on Wednesday, John Jaso finds himself on the bench for the series-finale against the Phillies. Jaso had started 11 of 13 games since returing from a two-month stay on the disabled list. He's batting .359 with a homer and four RBI in those 13 games.
Joey Butler will take over in left field and bat fifth with Jaso out of the lineup on Wednesday.

|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(7/21/15) With the Rays dealing with an interleague series against the Phillies, normal designated hitter John Jaso will play left field while remaining in the leadoff position.
Since returning to the lineup on July 7 after missing most of the season with a wrist injury, the Rays have played Jaso in the field only one other time, in left.
Jaso is hitting .343 in 12 games this season.

Jaso hit the solo shot off Edinson Volquez in the third inning of the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader. He finished the game 2 for 3 with one walk after having a pinch-hit single in the opener of the doubleheader.
Tuesday's nightcap was his first start suffering a wrist injury on Opening Day.

|(7/7/15) John Jaso will return to the Rays' lineup in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader.
Jaso has been out since Opening Day with a wrist contusion. He completed a minor league rehab assignment on Monday and was activated from the 60-day disabled list on Tuesday.
Jaso is playing designated hitter and batting leadoff. His return moves Grady Sizemore to left field. Sizemore has started six games at DH since joining the team.
Rays activate DH John Jaso from 60-day DL
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/7/15) Rays DH John Jaso was activated off the 60-day disabled list prior to Tuesday's doubleheader against the Royals. He has been sidelined since early April due to a wrist contusion.
Jaso spent eight games on a rehab assignment with Class A Charlotte and Triple-A Durham. He hit .250 (7 for 28) with one RBI, two doubles, two walks, three runs and four strikeouts.
Jaso played in five games at DH, two games in left field and one game at first base during his rehab assignment.
In his second season with the Athletics, John Jaso
served as the backup to starting catcher Derek Norris, though 32 starts at designated hitter extended his playing time. Though Jaso was not the on-base threat he had been in previous seasons, clocking in with a .337 on-base percentage, he provided some thump with nine home runs and 18 doubles in 307 at-bats. He did not play after Aug. 23, when he was sidelined with a concussion. The A's traded Jaso to the Rays in January, sending him back to the team with which he began his career.
Playing time status: Despite dealing with concussions in each of the last two seasons, Jaso is expected to take on catching duties again this season. He is set to split time behind the plate with fellow offseason acquisition Rene Rivera.
2015 outlook: Last season, Jaso was much more prone to swing at pitches than he had been in the past, but the new approach didn't appear to deliver any real benefits to Fantasy owners. Still, he offers enough power and run producing potential to be worth a flier as a low-end No. 2 catcher in standard mixed leagues.
