John Jaso past concussion, hopes to stay with the Athletics
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With the additions of DH Billy Butler and first baseman Ike Davis, there might be less playing time for Athletics catcher John Jaso in 2015 -- if he remains with the team. Even Jaso is bracing for the potential he could be traded this offseason, according to the Bay Area News Group.

"I talked to (general manager) Billy (Beane) and I don’t know anything about where I’ll be," Jaso said. "I told him I’m open to addition positions like first base and the outfield, whatever he needs, but as of right now my priority is being a catcher.

"I have no idea if I will be traded. If you’d asked me two years ago when I was with the Mariners, I would have said, 'Hell, yeah, I’m staying,’ but then I was traded. I love this organization and my teammates and I would love to stay with the A’s."

Jaso said he has been cleared to resume catching after he missed the end of the season due to a concussion.

"I think that’s ancient history now," Jaso said. "I’m moving on, starting my workouts and I’m ready to go. As of right now, I’m still planning on taking up catching again, whatever team I’m on."

Athletics C John Jaso cleared for baseball activities
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Athletics catcher John Jaso, whose season ended in August due to a concussion, has been cleared for all baseball activities, general manager Billy Beane told MLB.com. This means Jaso can catch again, but how often he'll catch next year is unclear, the report said.

The team is considering using Jaso at first base, too, per MLB.com.

John Jaso, Craig Gentry likely done
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

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.

John Jaso sent home, could be out for remainder of season
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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

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.
