OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Catcher John Jaso has agreed to a $2.3 million, one-year contract with the Oakland Athletics.
Jaso gets a $500,000 raise under the deal announced Thursday. In addition, Jaso can earn $25,000 bonuses for 90 games started at catcher 450 plate appearances.
His first season with the two-time defending AL West champion A's was cut short after he sustained a concussion when he took a foul tip off his mask July 24 at Houston and complained of a headache. Initially, Jaso was placed on the seven-day concussion list the following day, then transferred to the 15-day disabled list on Aug. 8.
Jaso batted .271 with three homers and 21 RBIs in 70 games.
He was among seven Oakland players who filed for arbitration.
