Rays Trade Jaso to Mariners

Tampa Bay announced that it has traded catcher John Jaso to the Mariners for right-hander Josh Lueke and a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Jaso took a step back from his performance in 2010 in 2011 when he particularly struggled on defense. Lueke went 1-1 with a 6.06 ERA in 25 appearances for the Mariners in 2011, his first season in the Major Leagues. The Rays are said to be close to signing veteran catcher Jose Molina.
