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.

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.
Apr 23 - 11:38 PM

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.
Apr 19 - 9:08 PM

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.
Apr 19 - 9:03 PM

Adam Jones started his third-straight game on Saturday and went 1-for-5 with his first home run of the season in the loss to the Rangers.

Jones has recently missed some time with an oblique injury, but showed on Saturday that he's healthy enough to do damage at the plate. He's now hitting .208/.208/.375 in just 24 plate appearances. The 30-year-old did see his overall production decline a bit a year ago, so it's unfortunate that an oblique injury has already thrown up a road block in his bounce-back campaign.
Apr 16 - 11:38 PM

Adam Jones (oblique) is back in the Orioles' lineup Thursday against the Rangers.

Jones hasn't started a game since April 6, though he's appeared as a defensive replacement twice in Baltimore's last three games. He'll bat third against Cole Hamels. Rookie Joey Rickard will slide over to left field for Thursday's series opener.
Apr 14 - 4:58 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter indicated that he is hopeful that Adam Jones (oblique) will be able to play on Thursday.

Jones took part in pregame batting practice prior to Wednesday's contest with the Red Sox. While he won't start in that game, he subbed in late on Tuesday and looks like he is on track to return in short order. He has been sidelined for the last week or so with an oblique injury.
Apr 13 - 5:43 PM

Adam Jones (oblique) is out of the Orioles' starting lineup again on Wednesday night.

Joey Rickard is starting in center field and batting leadoff versus Red Sox right-hander Joe Kelly. Hyun-soo Kim will get the nod in left field and bat ninth. Jones remains day-to-day with discomfort in his oblique. He has appeared as a defensive replacement the last two games, so a full return should be close.
Apr 13 - 3:35 PM

Adam Jones entered Tuesday's game against the Red Sox in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Jones also appeared as a late-inning defensive replacement on Monday. He has been held out of the Orioles' starting lineup for the last week because of oblique discomfort, but a return to full-time action would appear close. Joey Rickard shifted over to left field Tuesday with Jones taking over in center.
