Oakland Athletics catcher John Jaso remains out indefinitely with a concussion after visiting a specialist. Manager Bob Melvin was hoping Jaso would be cleared to return after seeing Dr. Micky Collins in Pittsburgh on Wednesday. Melvin said Jaso, sidelined since last month, will return to Oakland and won’t resume baseball activities for at least a few days. Jaso also sat out most of last season with concussion-like symptoms.

Josh Donaldson checked out the video and figured out the problem. Donaldson had a career-high five hits while driving in four runs, helping Jon Lester and the Oakland Athletics beat the Chicago White Sox 11-2 on Tuesday. Donaldson also scored two runs as Oakland got just its third win in 12 games. It was quite a turnaround for Donaldson after striking out four times the previous night.

It’s September. Divisions are up for grabs, wild card races are wild and half of MLB still has a chance at the playoffs. The Stew is in the process of planning out how 16 contenders could win the World Series, “could” being the operative word. Warning: All plans will be absurd, some will be more absurd than others. Team : Seattle Mariners Record : 78-64 Status:  Even with the splashy of signing of Robinson Cano, not many pundits expected the Seattle Mariners to legitimately contend in the American League. Well, surprise, surprise. The season is almost over and the Mariners are one of the better teams in the AL. They’re 78-64 (entering Monday) and tied for the second AL wild card. They’re 22-12 since Aug. 1, which is better than the Oakland Athletics, who are ahead of them in the AL West. Sure, the Mariners are in third place in their division, but it’s a bit misleading to just think of them as a third-place team. The AL West is the best division in baseball, and the M’s would be in second in every other division in MLB. With a strong pitching staff led by Felix Hernandez, a big-impact season from Cano and a breakout year from Kyle Seager, the M’s are definitely a team to fear in October.

A day after a dramatic comeback victory, the Oakland Athletics had quite the letdown. Ryan Cook walked three of his four batters, helping the Houston Astros score two runs in the ninth without a hit on their way to a 4-3 victory Sunday. ”Regardless, we have to find a way to create our own momentum,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. ”It’s all about winning games.” Jose Veras (4-0) pitched 1 2-3 scoreless innings as the Astros (63-80) took the rubber game of the weekend series.

Jed Lowrie and Oakland are hoping Saturday’s ninth inning against Houston will carry over to the rest of the season for the Athletics. Lowrie hit a game-ending RBI single, sending the A’s to a 4-3 victory over the Houston Astros. We just need to keep that momentum, use that momentum going forward and continue to believe that we can do what we set out to do at the beginning.” Lowrie, Josh Reddick and Coco Crisp had two hits apiece as Oakland snapped a three-game losing streak. Josh Donaldson started the A’s three-run ninth with a leadoff single, stopping an 0-for-15 slide.
