Adam Jones went 1-for-3 and cracked a solo homer in Saturday's spring loss to the Blue Jays.
The bomb came off starter Joe Biagini in the fourth inning and was his second of the Grapefruit League schedule. Jones' stats have been very consistent the last several years. The 32-year-old had a .285 batting average with 26 longballs and 73 RBI last season. Mar 17 - 4:49 PM

Adam Jones hit his first spring homer off Chance Adams as part of the Orioles' 7-4 defeat of the Yankees on Wednesday.

Judging by how things have looked this spring, Buck Showalter has settled on two spots in the lineup; he wants Manny Machado batting third and Jones in the cleanup spot. The Orioles definitely have cleanup options with more upside, but Jones does give them the steadying presence some of their other power hitters lack. He did hit a respectable .285/.322/.466 last year to turn around what had been four straight years of modest decline.

Adam Jones finished 3-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored as the Orioles earned a 10-8 comeback victory over the Red Sox in Grapefruit League play on Sunday.

Jones contributed an RBI double to the O's three-run third inning and another RBI double to their seven-run fourth. The veteran outfielder is batting .333 with an .879 OPS in the early going this spring. He should again provide solid fantasy numbers in the power categories this year.
Mar 4 - 4:51 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Adam Jones will stay in center field next season.

Showalter noted that the O's are looking for a left-handed hitter who could back up Jones in center. Jones tallied 26 home runs and 73 RBI in 147 games this past season for Baltimore, but he hasn't posted an OPS above .800 since 2013 and his defensive ratings have been troublesome for the last two years. He turns 33 years old next summer.
