Garrett Jones had a solo homer and an RBI double versus the Brewers on Monday.

Jones took a seat in favor of Justin Bour against a right-hander on Friday and then didn't play against the lefty on Saturday, but he's 3-for-6 with three extra-base hits the last two days. That should be good enough to keep him in the lineup for the rest of the series against the Brewers, with Milwaukee throwing four straight right-handers.
Sep 8 - 11:09 PM

Garrett Jones tripled, doubled and scored twice against the Nationals on Monday.

Jones seems to have come out of his slump, as he's now hit in six straight. Yesterday's hit was a homer, ending a drought that extended back to June 24.
Jul 28 - 10:46 PM

Garrett Jones went 2-for-5 with a go-ahead two-run single in the 10th to lead the Marlins to a 3-1 win over the Braves on Monday.

His first big hit in a while. In fact, Jones had driven in a total of six runs in a month, all of them coming in Marlins losses. The 10th got started tonight when Christian Yelich delivered a leadoff single off Shae Simmons. He was advanced on a sac bunt, at which point the Braves intentionally walked Giancarlo Stanton. Casey McGehee then worked a walk of his own, bringing up Jones. The Braves declined to counter with new lefty Chasen Shreve, and Jones delivered against Simmons.
Jul 21 - 11:36 PM

Garrett Jones went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Phillies.

Jones homered in the eighth inning against B.J. Rosenberg to bring the Marlins within three, but by then, it was too little, too late. It was Jones' 10th homer of the season, and he has 34 RBI with a .257/.324/.441 slash line on the season. The 32-year-old has been a good find for the Marlins.
Jun 24 - 11:20 PM

Garrett Jones hit a game-winning three-run home run as the Marlins came from behind to edge the Cubs 6-5 on Tuesday.

With two runners on and the Marlins trailing 4-3 in the seventh inning, Jones connected on a Brian Schlitter pitch for his ninth home run of the season. It was Jones' only hit in four at-bats on the night. Serving as the Marlins' primary first baseman this season, the 32-year-old is batting .267/.331/.453 with 32 RBI.
Jun 17 - 11:43 PM

Garrett Jones blasted a pair of solo home runs in Friday's loss to the Brewers.

Both solo shots came courtesy of Brewers starter Marco Estrada. Jones finished the evening 2-for-3 plus a walk and is now hitting a strong .286/.353/.518 with eight homers and 25 RBI on the season.
May 23 - 10:34 PM

Garrett Jones went 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles and a pair of runs batted in, but the Marlins fell to the Phillies on Tuesday.

While Jones' four hits represented two-thirds of the Marlins' total on the night, the club drew a total of eight walks. Jones knocked in a go-ahead run with a third-inning double, and brought his team within one run with a ninth-inning double. The first baseman has been a welcome contributor to the Marlins, as he is now slashing .273/.339/.472.
May 20 - 11:49 PM

Garrett Jones struck out all four times he was up and committed his fourth error at first base in Friday's loss.

Jones sure has cooled off in a hurry; since a three-double game on May 2 raised his average to .282, he's gone 2-24 with no RBI in six games. We doubt he'll prove to be a reliable mixed-league option this season.
May 10 - 1:51 AM

Garrett Jones tied a Marlins team record with three doubles, leading the Marlins to a 6-3 victory over the Dodgers in Miami on Friday.

Jones finished the night 3-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI. He’s off to a strong start to the season, slashing .282/.333/.476 with five homers and 15 RBI, and is worth consideration as a corner infield option in mixed leagues.
May 2 - 10:29 PM

Garrett Jones went 2-for-4 with a solo homer against the Mets on Friday.

Jones put the Marlins ahead with a home run off the right field foul pole in the top of the eighth inning, but Steve Cishek blew the game in the ninth. The 32-year-old is striking out at a ridiculous pace, but he has homered four times in his last 10 games.
Apr 25 - 10:34 PM

Garrett Jones launched his first home run as a Marlin Sunday, hitting a solo shot in a loss to the Phillies.

Jones' longball came in the fifth inning off of Kyle Kendrick. He also drew a walk on the day. The former Pirate has been hitting either fourth or fifth regularly for the Marlins so far but is sporting just a .224/.316/.327 batting line.
Apr 13 - 5:29 PM

Garrett Jones went 2-for-3 and homered in a second straight game Saturday against the Mets.

Jones' slump appears to be over; he was in a 4-for-38 skid before going 4-for-6 with two homers the last two days.
Mar 22 - 4:17 PM

Garrett Jones went 0-for-3 against the Yankees on Sunday and is in a 2-for-31 slump.

We think Jones is done as a useful major leaguer, but that didn't stop the Marlins from giving him a two-year, $7.5 million contract and a guaranteed starting job over the winter. He'll likely be the team's cleanup hitter against right-handers, at least for a month or two.
Mar 16 - 5:59 PM

Garrett Jones hit a two-run homer off Carlos Martinez in the Marlins' 5-4 win over the Cardinals on Friday.

After agreeing to a two-year, $7.5 million contract in December, Jones is slated to be the Marlins' cleanup hitter, at least against righties. The Marlins may give him a chance to start against lefties as well, but Jeff Baker is the much better choice to play first on those days.
