Adam Jones homered and walked twice Tuesday against the Rockies.

Jones had been struggling out of the leadoff spot this month, hitting .256/.279/.317 with one homer and three walks in 82 at-bats. He's still not a great fit at all up there, but tonight's game will ensure that he keeps the spot a little while longer.

Adam Jones went 2-for-5 with two RBI and scored the game-winning run in Monday's extra-innings win over the Rockies.

Both base knocks were singles, but Jones got the scoring going with an RBI single in the second and tied things up with an RBI groundout in the seventh. He should have been thrown out in the 10th, but Jordan Lyles misfired a ball to home and Nick Hundley couldn't hang on. It's been a rough July for Jones, but he has two multi-hit games in his last three tries.

Adam Jones (back) is back in the Orioles' lineup Friday.

Jones missed Thursday's game with back spasms, but he's in center field and batting leadoff Friday. He's hitting .262/.307/.441 with 17 homers this season.
Jul 22 - 4:05 PM

Adam Jones (back) is not in the Orioles' starting lineup Thursday versus the Yankees.

Jones was lifted in the eighth inning of Wednesday night's loss after experiencing back spasms. It's nothing serious. Julio Borbon will start in center field and hit ninth Thursday afternoon against lefty CC Sabathia.

Adam Jones was lifted in the eighth inning of Wednesday's loss to the Yankees due to back spasms.

This according to MASN's John Russell during postgame proceedings. Jones managed four at-bats before being replaced in center by Julio Borbon in the bottom of the eighth inning. Consider him day-to-day moving forward unless the team indicates otherwise. Jones is already saying that he plans on playing Thursday.
Jul 20 - 10:18 PM

Adam Jones went 2-for-5 with a double, a home run and three RBI in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

Jones, who has run very hot and very cold this season, has now homered in two straight games and has four in his last four contests. His hot streak has his June average up to .272 with eight home runs, 17 RBI and 14 runs scored in the month, which is only half over. Jones has 13 home runs, 40 RBI and 35 runs scored with a .245/.294/.448 overall.

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.
Jun 15 - 10:35 PM

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.
Jun 12 - 5:16 PM

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.
Jun 4 - 11:09 PM

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.
Jun 2 - 10:41 PM

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.
