Somehow I had no idea that Jaso did that well in a limited amount of ABs last year. Naturally his OBP seems exactly out of the Moneyball script (hopefully works better than say Bobby Kielty).

Cole was one of the prospects that Washington gave up in the Gio Gonzalez deal. Seemed to struggle in high A ball and Oakland has plenty of young pitching depth.

On an unrelated note, just discovered that Tommy Milone (another part of the Gonzalez deal) is from my high school (Saugus, CA). Previous to that our only claim to fame was Roger Salkeld who was the 3rd overall pick in 1989, but he hurt his arm and never became a permanent MLBer.
