Adam Jones went 2-for-5 and hit a two-run homer versus the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Jones has seven homers and 18 RBI in 19 games since the Orioles moved him into the leadoff spot. It's probably time to slide him back down into a spot where his approach makes more sense, but at the same time, the Orioles don't want to mess with what's working.

Adam Jones went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Sunday's 10-9 loss to the Blue Jays.

Jones obliterated an Aaron Sanchez offering for a two-run homer that traveled an estimated 434 feet to left-center in the fifth inning. He would follow that up with a solo tater in the eighth inning. As a team, the Orioles cracked five homers and still lost thanks to an absolutely abysmal effort from starter Ubaldo Jimenez and the bullpen collective. Normally one of the most dependent fantasy bats in the game, Jones is slashing just .238/.290/.423 with 11 homers and 35 RBI across 227 at-bats. He does have four homers in his last 10 games, though, hopefully a sign that he is ready to put these struggles behind him.

Adam Jones launched a three-run bomb against the Yankees on Saturday.

The sixth-inning blast was his eighth of the season. Jones has disappointed his owners with a .242/.294/.407 slash line this year but has started to heat up in recent games. He may no longer be the fantasy superstar he was for several years, but the soon-to-be 31-year-old is still a good hitter in a strong lineup. Now may be a smart time to buy in if you can.

Adam Jones finished 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI as the Orioles outlasted the Red Sox 12-7 on Thursday.

After bashing four homers in five days in mid-May, Jones had been homerless ever since before he deposited a Rick Porcello offering into the seats with a man on in the fifth inning. Jones piled on with a solo dinger in the eighth, one of the Orioles' seven home runs on the evening. The 30-year-old has been hot and cold this year but appears to be on the upswing with three consecutive multi-hit games. He's batting .242/.296/.398 through 48 games.

Adam Jones is hitting leadoff for the Orioles on Friday.

It's the first time he's been at the top of the batting order since May 6, 2010. The Orioles' offense -- Jones included -- has been scuffling of late, so they're trying to shake things up.
May 27 - 4:22 PM

Adam Jones continued his assault on the baseball Saturday, finishing 2-for-3 with a double and a home run in a win over the Tigers.

The homer was Jones' fourth in his last five games after hitting just one over his first 26 games. He has a seven-game hitting streak that has elevated his batting average 61 points, leaving his line at .259/.317/.431 through Saturday's game. There were certainly questions about the 30-year-old's offense just a few days ago, but those have since been put to rest after his scorching week.
May 14 - 10:09 PM

Adam Jones delivered the only offense of the game Friday with a solo homer as part of a 1-0 victory over the Tigers.

Jones’ sixth inning blast off Justin Verlander -- his 200th career homer -- held up as the difference in the ballgame. He went 2-for-3 on the night and has now homered in three out of his last four games. The 30-year-old really scuffled through the early part of the season, possibly due to a rib cage issue, but he’s finally coming around.
May 13 - 10:01 PM

Adam Jones finished 4-for-5 with a homer and two RBI in Wednesday's rout of the Twins.

Jones singled in the fourth, sixth, and seventh, and then cranked a two-run shot off Twins reliever Brandon Kintzler in the top of the ninth inning. If only he could face Minnesota pitching every week. Jones got off to a sluggish start this season, but he's been mashing lately.
May 11 - 4:15 PM

Adam Jones went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI, including the game-winner, as the Orioles downed the Twins 5-3 on Tuesday.

Jones connected for a much-needed solo home run, his second of the season and his first since April 16, in the fifth inning before coming through with a big two-run single in the ninth to break a tie score. It was his first three-RBI game of the year. The 30-year-old has struggled to a .210/.275/.310 line through 27 games but he's a much better hitter than that. Perhaps Tuesday's outburst will be the start of his resurgence.
May 10 - 11:38 PM

Adam Jones went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Thursday's win over the White Sox.

It was just his third double of the season, and the first run batted in for Jones since April 16. As evidenced by those numbers, it's been a rough go for the 30-year-old out of the gate, as he's hitting just .217/.277/.317 overall. His offense trended down in 2015, but he should still be better than this going forward.
Apr 28 - 10:49 PM

Adam Jones reached base three times, scoring two runs, in Saturday's win over the Royals.

OK, so three walks isn't exactly the most fantasy-friendly way to get on base, but he made it count by crossing home plate twice in the win. Owners will take what they can get from Jones, who was plagued by an oblique injury that may have contributed to his slow start at the dish. The 30-year-old is batting just .200/.289/.325 with one homer, five RBI and five runs scored through Saturday's game.

Adam Jones (stomach) is in the Orioles' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Blue Jays.

Jays made a seventh-inning exit on Tuesday night because of a stomach virus. It clearly wasn't a big deal. He'll start in center field and bat third with Toronto throwing veteran knuckleballer R.A. Dickey.
Apr 20 - 3:11 PM

Adam Jones left Tuesday's game with a stomach virus.

The good news is it had nothing to do with the oblique. Jones managed a single Tuesday before exiting, but he is batting just .222 with a .593 OPS in 27 total at-bats this season. He figures to get a few days of physical and mental rest. Nolan Reimold entered Tuesday's game in left field, with Joey Rickard taking over in right.

Adam Jones made an early exit from Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays with an apparent injury.

It could be his oblique acting up again. Jones was replaced by Nolan Reimold after grounding out to short in the bottom of the sixth inning. He finished 1-for-3.
