OAKLAND (CBS SF) – The trade of John Jaso to the Tampa Bay Rays over the weekend means that A’s fans will likely be looking at a whole new starting infield for the 2015 season.
KCBS producer (and longtime A’s fan) Nic Palmer has been tracking the movement and he’s had to pull out his pen a dozen times to cross out players from last year’s team photo.READ MORE: San Jose Police Investigate Officer-Involved Shooting With Carjacking Suspect
Just to recap, here is who the A’s have parted ways with – so far – this busy offseason (from top left):
Only closer Sean Doolittle and starter Scott Kazmir return from the league-leading six players the A’s sent to the All-Star game last year. In August the A’s were the winningest team in baseball. They eventually dropped to second place and were eliminated in a 1-game playoff by eventual AL champion Kansas City.
