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.

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.

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.

Adam Jones tallied a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Red Sox.

Jones took Rick Porcello deep in the eighth inning to cut the deficit to three, but that's as close as the Orioles got. It was one of just four base hits by the O's on the night. Jones now has 28 dingers on the season.

Adam Jones hit his 26th home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

Since coming back from a hamstring injury five days ago, Jones is 8-for-23 with two homers, three RBI and five runs scored. After a slow start to the year, the 31-year-old is hitting .278/.317/.463 with 26 homers, 77 RBI and 79 runs scored on the year.

Adam Jones went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Yankees.

The homer, the 25th of the year for Jones, came in the fifth inning against Yankees starter CC Sabathia. He seems just fine after a hamstring injury held him out for a few games earlier in the week, as the 31-year-old has four hits in eight at-bats since returning to the lineup. Jones is hitting .279/.319/.462 with 76 RBI and 76 runs scored on the year.
