    • Jaso launched a pinch-hit, two-run homer in a 3-0 win over the Tigers on Monday. At-bats have become harder to come by for Jaso following the addition of Sean Rodriguez, as he's started only three times since July 16. That said, Jaso -- who recently snapped an 0-for-34 slide -- has collected four homers among his last 12 hits. He also leads Pittsburgh with three pinch-hit home runs.

    • Pirates' John Jaso: Starting with Polanco out
      By RotoWire Staff

      Jaso started Saturday night's game in right field in place of the injured Gregory Polanco, going 0-for-3 with a walk. Jaso also replaced Polanco on Friday night when Polanco got hurt. He had started to get more time ahead of Adam Frazier and Jose Osuna when Starling Marte was still serving his suspension, but he's hitting just .222/.309/.407 on the season, so not exactly the production you'd hope for from a corner outfielder.

    • Pirates' John Jaso: Showing value as bench player
      By RotoWire Staff

      Jaso went 2-for-4 with his seventh homer Sunday against San Francisco. He now has three home runs in his last 21 plate appearances. Since bottoming out at .111 in late April, Jaso is slashing .299/.373/.575 with seven homers in his last 142 plate appearances. He's likely overexposed as an everyday player, but Jaso is showing value on days he starts. His home run Sunday off reliever Steve Okert was just his second ever off a left-handed pitcher.

    • Pirates' John Jaso: Hits solo homer
      By RotoWire Staff

      Jaso went 2-for-4 with a solo home run during Thursday's win over Tampa Bay. Jaso has posted sneaky numbers since mid-May with a 26-for-79 run at the dish, four homers, 15 RBI and nine runs. He's also improved his OPS from a dreadful .583 mark on May 17 to his current .777. Obviously, Jaso is best left to deep settings because he's only playing sparingly, but he's certainly trending in the right direction.

    • Pirates' John Jaso: Will bat third Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Jaso will start in right field and bat third Wednesday against the Brewers. Jaso will enter the lineup for the first time in four games with Gregory Polanco taking a seat. Though he doesn't have a line on an everyday role with the Pirates at full strength at the corner infield and outfield spots, Jaso can still make for a decent low-cost DFS option when he's in the starting nine, particularly against right-handed pitching. He owns a career .273/.365/.430 slash line versus righties.
