JOHN JASO RUMORS & GOSSIP

Boxscore Breakdown Game #13: Jaso’d again – Athletics 3, Angels 2

I’m writing this whilst doubled over as I am still feeling the after-effects of that gut punch loss courtesy of John Jaso. Run Expectancy Rundown Albert Pujols and Kole Calhoun were the only two Angels that could solve the riddle that was Jesse Chavez. David Freese and Howie Kendrick did their usual no-show act while Mike Trout was very un-Trout-like. Jaso. It always has to be...

Jaso Pinch-Hit Homers A’s To Come From Behind Victory Over Halos

Chavez allowed four hits and struck out nine Angels’ batters without allowing a walk. The only earned run...

John Jaso's pinch HR gives A's a victory

Some players, knowing they might pinch hit late in games, spend time watching video of relievers or taking some hacks in the cage, or just intently watching the opposing pitcher. John Jaso is not one of them - the A's catcher has a remarkably laid-back approach to big at-bats. On Monday night at Angel Stadium, he used that mellow vibe while hitting for Derek Norris in the ninth...

A's catcher Jaso ready for spring training

John Jaso took the field with the rest of his Oakland Athletics teammates for their first full-squad workout of spring training on Thursday. He'd already taken a ball off his mask in spring training, an important hurdle for him to clear in his return to baseball.

Your browser does not support iframes. Oakland A's catcher John Jaso had an embarrassing moment running the basepaths during Thursday's game against the Texas Rangers when he slid into second base on a foul ball. It happened in the top of the third inning after Jaso walked to reach first base with two outs. The next A's batter, Jed Lowrie, hit a foul grounder on a...

John Jaso's plate discipline improves the Athletics

The Oakland Athletics won the American League West last season despite a virtual black hole on offense from the catching position. In 632 plate appearances by all of their catchers in 2012, the triple slash line from the position was: .204/.262/.325. That .587 OPS was abysmal and worked out to a 64 OPS+. And so it made sense for Billy Beane to use a couple of his pitching prospects...
