John Jaso

Jaso is expected to fetch $3.3 million for his 2015 season, a million dollar raise from 2014. Despite his concussion shortened season, Jaso still managed to appear in 99 games and earn a .264 batting average with 9 home runs and 40 RBI’s. At this point, it is unclear what the Athletics will do with Jaso considering their incredible depth at the catcher, first base, and designated hitter spot. While the A’s may not be willing to gamble on Jaso behind the plate this year, his price tag may be in a good neighborhood to land him as a backup catcher for another team and could help encourage a trade that lands the A’s a decent shortstop.
