John Jaso, Craig Gentry likely done


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2014) Athletics manager Bob Melvin acknowledged Sunday that catcher John Jaso and outfielder Craig Gentry are running out of time to return from their concussions and could miss the rest of the season, according to MLB.com.

"With eight games left," Melvin said, "there's always that possibility."

Craig suffered his concussion Sept. 9 after suffering one previously in 2011. Jaso's came way back in August. He was expected to return as a pinch-hitter and part-time DH at one point, but a visit with a concussion specialist Sept. 10 pushed back his timetable.

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

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 filling platoon role productively


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A's manager not ready to stray from catcher platoon


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) Athletics catcher Derek Norris has been on a roll offensively, producing four straight multi-hit games and batting .481 (13 for 27) with five doubles and seven RBI in his last nine games.

However, despite his recent success, it doesn't appear manager Bob Melvin is going to stray too far from his platoon of John Jaso and Norris behind the plate. Jaso usually starts when a right-hander is on the hill and Norris when a lefty starts.

"We do it a certain way here. But he’s doing very well," manager Bob Melvin said of Norris, per InsideBayArea.com. "You’ve seen he’s started some games against some right-handers and had some big at-bats against right-handers.

"The better you do, the more reps you’ll get. We’re going to see a bunch of left-handers coming up."
