Fantasy Impact: Jones, 29, is a nine-year veteran that explodes in the box with full, seemingly effortless swings. Now he needs to concentrate on getting his first stolen base of the season.

Jones lined a 3-run shot over the left field wall in the 3rd inning for his fourth homer of the Spring. Shortly after, the game was cancelled without reaching the 5th to make it an official game.
Fantasy Impact: Unfortunately, the game was called after a rain delay so the stats will not count in the books. However, the home run did occur and it was a bullet. The power numbers Jones' owners have grown accustom to haven't skipped a beat in 2015. Over the past three seasons, Jones ranks 6th in the MLB with 94 homeruns. This spring, he boasts an OPS of nearly .900 with half of his hits going for extra bases.
