Adam Jones went 2-for-4 and hit his sixth homer Thursday against the Tigers.

The homer was a solo shot, and Jones still hasn't had a multi-RBI game since April 24. It's pretty incredible that the Orioles are 23-16 with Jones, Manny Machado and Mark Trumbo all struggling to find their stride and Chris Davis only recently locating his.

Adam Jones (hip) went 3-for-7 with an RBI and a run scored in his return to the Orioles' lineup Tuesday night against the Tigers.

Jones also played all 13 innings of the game in center field, helping the Orioles pull off a marathon victory at Detroit's Comerica Park. The center fielder missed Sunday's series finale against the Royals due to minor hip soreness. It was clearly nothing too serious.

Adam Jones is not in the Orioles' lineup Sunday due to a sore hip.

It doesn't sound like a big deal, but the O's wanted to give Jones a couple days of rest when you add in Monday's off day. He should be back in there Tuesday. J.J. Hardy is also sitting out Sunday, as the Orioles have Joey Rickard in center field and Ryan Flaherty at shortstop.

Adam Jones singled and smacked a solo homer Tuesday against the Nationals.

Jones' longball came in the eighth inning off of Max Scherzer and cut the Nationals' lead to two. The Orioles plated a couple more in the ninth to tie things up and eventually won it in the 12th. The dinger was Jones' first since April 24.
May 9 - 11:39 PM

Adam Jones was tossed after his fifth-inning strikeout Wednesday against the Red Sox.

It was a bizarre ejection, the second of the night. Jones, who struck out swinging, had never been tossed from a game in 12 big-league seasons, and there's not really any way he should have been tonight.
May 3 - 10:52 PM

Adam Jones finished 3-for-3 with a two-run homer in the Orioles' win over the Rays on Monday.

Jones' two-run shot off Chris Archer in the bottom of the seventh inning put the O's ahead for good. He also doubled off Archer in the bottom of the first, drew a walk in the third, and singled in the fifth. Jones has an excellent .300/.372/.529 batting line with four home runs, four doubles, and 10 RBI through 18 games this season for the American League East-leading Orioles.

Adam Jones smacked a two-run homer in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

Jones took Bronson Arroyo over the boards in the fifth inning, but it made it just a 9-3 deficit at the time and that wound up being the final score. The Orioles' outfielder also drew a rare walk and is sporting a nice .277/.358/.532 line in the early going.
Apr 18 - 10:26 PM

Adam Jones went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run to lead his team over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

He took J.A. Happ over the left field wall with a runner aboard in the third inning for his first homer of the new season. He was one of the heroes of the USA's championship in the World Baseball Classic last month and continued his heroics today. Now 31 years old, his stats have been trending slightly downward in recent seasons although he is still one of the better fantasy outfielders to own. He turned in a .265 batting average with 29 homers and 83 RBI last year.

Adam Jones played the role of hero for the United States on Friday, delivering a two-out RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning, propelling the USA to a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Colombia in the World Baseball Classic.

Things got tense in what was supposed to be an easy victory, as the US fell behind early 2-0 and couldn't get anything going against Jose Quintana. Brandon Crawford got the club's first hit with two outs in the sixth which chased the right-hander, and after a single from Ian Kinsler, Jones came through with an RBI double to plate the team's first run. Kinsler scampered home on a wild pitch shortly thereafter to tie the game. In the 10th, Christian Yelich and Crawford drew one out walks, setting the stage for Jones' game-winning knock.
Mar 10 - 9:38 PM

Adam Jones went 2-for-3 with a homer and three RBI as the Orioles crushed the Red Sox 12-5 on Wednesday.

Jones would be somewhere in the 10-15 range among Team USA's best center field options were everyone willing to play, but since he's off to a hot start this spring, maybe his inclusion on the WBC roster will pay off anyway. He's currently 5-for-11 with two homers.
Mar 1 - 5:08 PM

Adam Jones went 2-for-3 with a homer Sunday as the Orioles topped the Pirates 8-3.

Jones hit cleanup yesterday. Today, he was in the two hole in an Orioles lineup that included eight regulars. Manager Buck Showalter is trying to figure out what arrangement makes the most sense after a 2016 in which Jones spent a lot of time hitting leadoff. Jones will get plenty of at-bats early on this spring in order to prepare him for the Would Baseball Classic.
Feb 26 - 4:07 PM

Adam Jones went 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored in his spring debut against the Pirates on Saturday.

He was batting in the fourth slot after finishing last season in the leadoff role. The power hitter seems more suited to bat it the heart of the lineup. He hit .265/.310/.436 with 29 home runs and 83 RBI last year.
Feb 25 - 4:28 PM

Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun said "don't be surprised" if Adam Jones bats leadoff in 2017.

The Orioles experimented with a number of different leadoff hitters last season before eventually settling on Jones. The 31-year-old isn't a conventional table-setter—he slugged 29 homers while stealing just two bases last season. But neither are the Orioles' other leadoff options, aside from Hyun Soo Kim, who rarely starts against left-handers. Knowing Buck Showalter's penchant for mixing and matching, the leadoff spot will probably be a revolving door in 2017.
Feb 11 - 5:24 PM

Adam Jones socked a solo homer and drew a walk Friday versus the Yankees.

Jones hit the first of three homers in the fifth inning. He’s now up to 29 homers on the year. The power has remained consistent, but he doesn’t run anymore and he owns a pedestrian .757 OPS. With home runs up around the game, he’s just not as appealing in fantasy leagues as he used to be.
