John Jaso: Shipped To Oakland In Three-Team Deal
Update: Jaso was traded to the Athletics in a three-team deal that sent Mike Morse to the Mariners and A.J. Cole and two players to be named later to the Nationals.

Recommendation: It appeared Jaso might have been roadblocked by Jesus Montero for the top job in Seattle this season, but the move to Oakland should allow him to claim the No. 1 spot on on the depth chart from Derek Norris, at least initially. Jaso's career bests in on-base (.394) and slugging percentage (.456) last season fit the Athletics' organizational ethos and will allow the team to bring Norris along slowly.
