|John Jaso sent home, could be out for remainder of season |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/10/14) Athletics catcher John Jaso has been sent home to Oakland, and his doctor isn't happy with his progression from a concussion, the Oakland Tribune reports.
Jaso's season could potentially be over with the setback, though his timetable hasn't been clarified. He will cease baseball activity until gaining clearance from a doctor. Jaso has hit .264/.337/.430 with nine home runs and 40 RBI in 307 at-bats.
|John Jaso won't catch anymore |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/8/14) Athletics catcher John Jaso, who has been out since Aug. 23 with a concussion, is on the verge of returning, according to CSNBayArea.com, but when he comes back, it'll be as a pinch hitter.
They don't want Jaso, who also missed the end of last season with a concussion, to catch anymore, and with the acquisition of Adam Dunn, they can no longer make the DH spot available against right-handed pitchers.
Jaso is expected back at some point during the road trip that begins Monday in Chicago.

|John Jaso lands on 7-day DL |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/25/14) The Athletics officially placed catcher John Jaso on the 7-day disabled list -- retroactive to Aug, 24 -- with a concussion, the team announced. Jaso has been experiencing concussion symptoms that have worsened over the past two weeks. He owned a .264/.337/.430 with nine homers and 40 RBI over 307 at-bats before landing on the DL.
|John Jaso re-established himself as one of the best on-base men at the catcher position in 2012, so naturally, the Athletics, the team that has historically valued on-base percentage above all else, saw fit to trade for him, intending to have him split at-bats with the up-and-coming Derek Norris. For the 3 1/2 months he did, Jaso certainly met his end of the bargain. His .387 on-base percentage, mostly the product of a stellar walk rate, gave him better than a .370 mark for a third time in four seasons. Unfortunately, his season ended on July 24 when he took a foul ball off the mask, suffering a concussion. The fact he never returned for the Athletics' playoff run is concerning enough that he may not get a chance to catch again. The Athletics plan to go with Norris and Stephen Vogt at catcher, leaving Jaso to play DH. That's good news for his short-term Fantasy value. He retains catcher eligibility from last year and has a chance for more at-bats as a DH. Still, for as much as he gets on base, Jaso isn't especially attractive in Fantasy since he doesn't excel in any other area. He's worth drafting in AL-only leagues, particularly ones that require the use of two catches, but he doesn't need to be a big investment.
