Jaso awaiting clearance to begin rehab work

OAKLAND -- If John Jaso is to rejoin the team before the season's end, he likely won't have the opportunity to use the Minor League system for rehab work.

Oakland's left-handed-hitting backstop, who has been on the disabled list for more than a month with a concussion, has yet to take batting practice, and Monday marks the end of the Minor League seasons.

When Jaso does feel healthy enough to play, A's manager Bob Melvin said the best course of action would be to get him at-bats in simulated games.

"When I talked to him yesterday, he's feeling better about getting some swings in and he's pretty antsy about getting out and hopefully getting some at-bats somewhere," Melvin said. "We still haven't ruled him out potentially being a piece for us in September. It's just making sure he gets the clearance and going at the pace the doctor says."
