John Jaso C/DH TB 1 day ago

Jaso (wrist) is without a timetable to resume swinging, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Manager Kevin Cash had previously indicated Jaso likely wouldn't be ready to return when first eligible, but it's now sounding like he will be out well beyond his earliest possible activation date. Jaso said he "can't really even lift a bat with [his] left hand." He underwent a follow-up X-ray, which showed no break, but he may be dealing with some bone bruising.

Jaso (wrist) is not expected to ready to return from the DL when first eligible, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

As of Wednesday, Jaso still had not been cleared to swing a bat, and manager Kevin Cash said the 31-year-old will likely need more time beyond his earliest possible activation date. The injury, a sprained wrist, was suffered on Opening Day.

Jaso (wrist) has yet to swing a back since landing on the disabled list, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Jaso suffered a wrist contusion on Opening Day, and the swelling has apparently gone down, but the lefty catcher has yet to take some cuts with a bat. Once he does get to this step, a clearer timetable for his return will likely be established. Look for Rene Rivera to continue to serve as the Rays' primary backstop in the meantime.

Jaso (wrist) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.

Jaso made one plate appearance on Opening Day before suffering a left wrist contusion. His placement on the disabled list will sideline him until later in April, while the club recalled Mikie Mahtook to take his place on the 25-man roster.

Jaso (wrist) may be placed on the disabled list this weekend when the Rays are on the road in Miami and need to play under National League rules, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The Rays may be holding off on making the move sooner in order to have Jaso available as a pinch-runner if needed. If he doesn't play in a game before the move, Jaso's placement would become retroactive to April 7.

Jaso (wrist) is not taking part in any baseball activities Tuesday, and he will be re-evaluated Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Jaso said his wrist is pretty sore, and he's expected to miss games against the Orioles on Tuesday and Wednesday. He may have a shot to return for a weekend series against the Blue Jays, but a longer absence would leave more at-bats for David DeJesus, Kevin Kiermaier and Brandon Guyer.

Jaso (wrist) will miss at least a couple days, but he does not believe a DL stint will be required, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports.

He has a sprained wrist and says it's really sore, but fortunately the MRI came back negative, so this should not sideline him for too long. However, owners should expect to be without Jaso for at least the next couple days.

Jaso exited Monday's Opening Day game with a left wrist contusion, Steve Carney of 620 AM WDAE reports.

Jaso underwent X-rays that returned negative, indicating there's nothing broken. Unless something more comes of the situation, he's probably day-to-day at this point.

Jaso (shin) is feeling better and will get the start in left field Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports.

This is excellent news after Jaso left Saturday's Grapefruit League game with a bruise on his right shin. He is a solid investment at the end of mixed league drafts as he qualifies at catcher in many formats but will be playing the outfield and DH this season, which should allow him to be in the lineup whenever a righty is on the mound.

Jaso left Saturday's Grapefruit League game with a bruise on his lower right leg, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.

Jaso was hit by a pitch in his first at-bat, and while he was able to stay in the game initially, he was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the third inning. The team does not believe the injury is anything serious, but consider Jaso day-to-day until he returns to action.
