The multi-hit game was Jones' fourth in his last five contests, raising his line to .265/.306/.431 in 61 games overall. The 31-year-old has 12 homers, 31 RBI and 32 runs scored to date.

Adam Jones filled up the box score on Wednesday, going 3-for-5 with a home run, five RBI and two runs scored in a 10-4 victory over the Yankees.

He punched an RBI double in the third inning, bashed a three-run jack in the fourth, then beat out an infield single that plated a run in the eighth frame. The stellar game boosted his season totals to .267/.309/.436 with nine home runs and 26 RBI in 207 plate appearances. The outfielder had not played since Friday as he nursed ankle and hip injuries.

Adam Jones (ankle, hip) is back in the Orioles' starting lineup on Wednesday night.

Jones was due to return Tuesday, but Orioles manager Buck Showalter canceled that plan due to a rainy forecast in Baltimore. Jones is starting in center field and batting second Wednesday versus Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka.
May 31 - 3:35 PM

Adam Jones (ankle, hip) has been scratched from the Orioles' lineup Tuesday.

Jones has now been scratched from back-to-back games, and he hasn't made a plate appearance since Friday. The veteran center fielder continues to nurse minor hip and ankle injuries, and the forecast calls for wet conditions Tuesday night at Camden Yards. Joey Rickard is starting in center field and batting eighth versus Yankees right-hander Luis Severino.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Jones' removal from Tuesday's lineup doesn't do anything to bolster Baltimore's appeal against Luis Severino. The Orioles rank 20th in wRC+ (93, slightly below average) against RHP and also sit 20th in OPS, so targeting them on a full slate against one of the league's better young arms doesn't seem wise. Severino has been effective against hitters from both sides of the plate - .260 wOBA allowed to LHs and a .280 mark allowed to RHs - so limit your Orioles exposure.

May 28 - 11:58 AM

Updating an earlier report, Adam Jones is out with a left ankle injury and a sore hip.
