MLB Injury News:
As John Jaso works his way toward an instructional league game in Arizona, he has been continuing to participate in team activities as much as possible. Yesterday, he took batting practice before the Oakland Athletics' game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Jane Lee of MLB.com says Jaso is still on pace to start in an instructional league game next Monday in Arizona. He is scheduled to get four at-bats in the game. That will be the first time Jaso gets live game-action since July when he suffered his concussion. The A's hope to advance far enough to allow Jaso another chance to play in meaningful games.
Jaso has been a solid piece of the A's roster. He is veteran behind the plate and has a decent bat. This season, Jaso is hitting .271/.387/.382. He does not have much pop, but he handles the pitching staff well, gets on base, and has a good arm behind the plate. The A's would love to have him back before the postseason, but that will not be likely.
Jaso suffered a concussion in July. Unfortunately, he was unable to shake the symptoms of the injury. He has been shut down ever since and only recently began to make enough progress to participate in baseball activities.
