News: Jaso will meet with a concussion specialist before the end of the week, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports. Impact: If Jaso checks out OK, he could be cleared to resume hitting at some point next week, though there remains a distinct possibility he does not play again this season. The 30-year-old's symptoms recently resurfaced, resulting in what's now been more than a weeklong shutdown.(RotoWire, )

News: Jaso (concussion) has not been cleared to resume baseball activities, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: Jaso appeared close to a return earlier this month, but the team ended up shutting him down after his symptoms resurfaced. He's been shut down from all baseball-related activities for close to a week now, and at this point, appears unlikely to play again this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Jaso (concussion) has not yet been cleared to play, and will cease baseball activities for the time being, the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reports. Impact: He will travel back to the Bay Area, and his timetable for a return is unknown. Manager Bob Melvin says it's too soon to say Jaso is done for the season, but that doctors want to get him into a different routine away from the field for now. In single-season leagues, it's probably time to start looking for other options.(RotoWire, )

News: Jaso (concussion) will visit a concussion specialist in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, after which he could be cleared to return to the Athletics, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports. Impact: The exam will clear Jaso to be activated this week, as expected, but his amount of immediate playing time will be unknown until his status is more clear. He likely won't be afforded much time at DH due to the acquisition of Adam Dunn on Aug. 31, while he may not be available as a backstop right off the bat, either.(RotoWire, )

News: Jaso (concussion) will likely be activated at some point in the next week, Joe Stilgich of CSN California reports. Impact: Jaso will likely take on a role as a pinch hitter when he returns after the recent acquisition of Adam Dunn. He should also see some occasional starts behind the plate when he is healthy.(RotoWire, )

News: Jaso (concussion) will find out in the next couple days if he's cleared to rejoin the A's for pinch-hitting duties, as it's still unlikely he'll be able to catch in the coming days, the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reports. Impact: It's unlikely that he'll be of much use to owners until he can get back behind the plate, which it doesn't sound like he'll be doing in the very near future. The A's could certainly use Jaso as a backup to Derek Norris, but in the meantime, Geovany Soto will get most of the backup starts behind the dish.(RotoWire, )

News: Jaso (concussion) ran the bases Friday for the first time since landing on the 7-day DL, Jane Lee of reports. Impact: Jaso's concussion symptoms had been lingering for a couple weeks before he landed on the 7-day DL on Aug. 25, but his ability to run the bases Friday bodes well for his chances of returning in relatively short order. Derek Norris, Geovany Soto and Bryan Anderson will continue to share the workload behind the plate.(RotoWire, )
