Bats: R, Throws: R

Adam Jones continued his impressive August Monday night recording his 24th homerun off two hits in a 8-3 loss to the Royals. Jones also scored twice and was truly the only reliable option for the Orioles' offense. His average has climbed to .285 on the year.

Fantasy Impact: Jones has been scorching of late, hitting .321 over his last seven days. He has been excellent against lefties this year, batting .330 and superb in day games where he is batting .349. Jones has 66 RBIs on the year to go with his 24 home runs. Jones is always an excellent play in both daily and fantasy leagues.

The Orioles slipped past the Mets Wednesday night 5-4 in large part to Adam Jones' impressive night. Jones went two for three with two runs a double and a homerun. Jones now has 23 homeruns and 64 RBIs on the year.

Fantasy Impact: Although not recording a hit in his past two games, Jones is still hitting an impressive .375 over his last seven games. He is batting .283 on the year and has been tearing up lefties with a .333 average. Jones is an excellent play in both dfs and fantasy games.

The Orioles outlasted the Athletics 8-6 in 13 innings Friday night in large part to Adam Jones' big night. Jones went 3 for 5 with one home run, four RBIs, and two singles. He is now .282 on the season with 20 homers and 60 RBIs.

Fantasy Impact: Jones has been a great FanDuel DFS value all year and look for that to continue. He always has the ability to go off like a superstar as he did Friday but is priced around the $3000 mark. Fantasy owners should continue to slot Jones with confidence as he looks primed to tear off another hot streak.

Adam Jones nails 18th homer in win

Tue, Aug 11th 12:12pm EDT
By Jack Keenan

The Orioles beat the Mariners 3-2 Monday night and Adam Jones was a major contributor to the win. Jones went 2 for 4 with two runs and a solo home run. This was Jones' first homerun in nine games and a nice bounceback after batting .160 the past seven days. He is now hitting .281 on the year with 18 home runs and 54 RBIs.

Fantasy Impact: Jones has been tough to predict in recent weeks but take this performance as a sign he is coming back into form. Now may be the best time for fantasy owners to invest in Jones and for DFS players to slot him. Jones has the ability to be an elite player at his position and is worth the sinking price in daily leagues.

Adam Jones went 9-for-18 in the first four games after the All-Star break.

Fantasy Impact: He is an elite OF and should be owned in the vast majority of leagues.

 

On Sunday, the Baltimore Orioles lost to the Washington Nationals 3-2. The Orioles struggled to put together any offense in the game. The only player who could give them any offense was Adam Jones, who went 2-4, with two home run, and two RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Jones has seemed to find himself since coming back from his injury over the last few weeks. He has been one of the main components of the Orioles run back to first place, and has been able to supply consistent offense when that have needed it most. This season Jones is hitting .281, with 14 home runs, 43 RBI, three stolen bases, and an OPS of .816. Jones's consistent offense will bring a steady bat to any team looking for one, and will consistently produce. The Orioles will look to get back into the win column after the all-star break.

On Friday, the Baltimore Orioles beat the Washington Nationals 3-2. The Orioles were able to come back into the game and help gain some ground in the AL East. Adam Jones went 1-4, with a hit, and an RBI to help the O's win.

Fantasy Impact: Jones has started to find himself since coming back from his injury, he has started to produce more every game and is getting back to all-star form. Jones has been a huge part of the offensive surge for the Orioles and has helped the get back into the hunt for first place. Jones this year is hitting .283, with 11 home runs, 41 RBI, three stolen bases, and an OPS of .801. Jones has been very good for the Orioles, but has struggled to stay healthy for them. Jones would bring a big bat to any team that is looking to bolster their offense as the second half starts, and if he gets hot he will start to get very consistent for the Orioles. The Oriole will look to keep up their winning ways on Saturday against the Nationals.

Jones has helped the Orioles make a run at first place recently. Jones this season is hitting .288, with 11 home runs, 40 RBI, and an OPS of .812. Jones has shown why he is an all-star and why he has deserved that honor this year. Jones has been a huge part of the Orioles this year, and will bring a solid outfielder with a good bat to any team looking for a boost.

On Monday, the Baltimore Orioles lost to the Minnesota Twins 4-2. The game would be won in extra innings by a Dozier home run in the 10th. Although they lost Jones went 1-5 with a huge home run that tied the game, and got an RBI in the loss.

Fantasy Impact: Jones had been in a little bit of a slump before the game on sunday, and continued to regain his form on Monday. Jones has 11 home runs this year, with 39 RBI, with an AVG of .286, and an OPS of .798. Jones has been a huge part of the Orioles this season, and when he is healthy he has shown why he was named an all-star today. Jones has had a greta season for the O's and is a big reason why they have made a big push in recent weeks for first place in the AL East. Jones would be solid power guy for any team that needs a big bat in the line-up. Jones and the Orioles will look to get back into the win column on Tuesday against the Twins.

By James McGowan

Fantasy Impact: Jones looks like he is finally finding himself after struggling a little bit since coming back. He is currently hitting .283, with 10 home runs, 37 RBI, and has an OPS of .786. Jones looks to get back to all-star form and help the O's regain first place in the AL East. Jones will bring a solid bat and good player to any team that is looking to help bolster their line-up.

On Saturday, the Baltimore Orioles lost to the Chicago White Sox 3-2. The loss stretched their losing streak to three games. Adam Jones failed to record a hit in his third straight game.

Fantasy Impact: Jones looks to be slumping a little bit since coming back from his injury a few games ago. He has played in 70 games this season, and has been kind of hot and cold the whole season. He is currently hitting .283 this season, with 10 home runs, 37 RBI, and an OPS of .786. Jones is still the star player that he has always been, but he has struggled with consistency this season. Jones will bring a solid starting outfielder to any team that is looking to bolster their core, and will have a hot bat when he finally gets going. Jones will look to get back on track on Sunday against the White Sox.

On Monday, the Baltimore Orioles got crushed by the Texas Rangers 8-1. Providing the only offense for the O's was center fielder Adam Jones, who got an RBI single in the fifth to put the O's on the board.

Fantasy Impact: Jones has struggled this season to be healthy and in the line-up everyday. He just recently came back to the team after resting a nagging lower body injury, that keep him out of most the games from last week. But through 65 games this season, Jones is hitting .292, with 10 home runs, 37 RBI, and has an OPS of .814. Jones has been a consistent threat this season at the plate, and has been able to provide life to an offense that at times lacks consistency. The only problem with Jones this season is that he has struggled to stay healthy through the first half. While I would worry to much because he is still a player that can bring great offense to any team looking for a strong bat in their line-up, it is worth warning potential owners that he has struggled with health issues so far. Jones is a solid player and will look to get his production back to where it was before he was injured as we approach the all-star break, and the end of the first half.

Adam Jones has been hurt lately

Sun, Jun 28th 2:05am EDT
By Jamie Mellor

Adam Jones has not been playing since June 20th with an injured shoulder. The decision on whether to put him on the DL is rumored to be coming soon.

Fantasy Impact: When he is healthy, he is good. If he is your second OF, then you did well. He should be started in most leagues and owned in even more as soon as he comes back.

 

Adam Jones playing well

Tue, Jun 16th 1:26am EDT
By Jamie Mellor

In his past six games, he has either scored a run or gotten a hit (or both in some cases). During this stretch, he has six hits, five runs scored and three RBI.

Fantasy Impact: He is good. If he is your second OF, then you are doing well. He should be started in most leagues and owned in even more.

 

Adam Jones went 1-for-4 on Wednesday including driving in the eventual game-winning RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Adam Jones continues to be an elite option. He continues to bat over .300 with power. He does not steal as many bases as he used to, but that merely puts him behind the Trouts of the fantasy world, not out of contention for OF1 status in most leagues.

Adam Jones listed day to day

Sun, May 31st 12:27am EDT
By James McGowan

Adam Jones got the day off on Saturday as the Orioles lost to the Rays 3-0. According to manager buck Showalter, the Orioles all-star center fielder has a mild ankle sprain. Jones went for an x-ray and an MRI, both were negative and structurally he checked out fine. (Source: MLB)

Fantasy Impact: Jones injured the ankle on a slide home, in Thursday's nights doubleheader against the Whitesox. Jones is hitting .304 this season, with six home runs, and 26 RBI. Jones is on pace for another all-star season, and he has been one of the more consistent performers for the Orioles over the past few years. Jones had started to struggle at the plate before his injury, slumping just a little with a lack of power at the plate. It'll be interesting to see how this injury will affect Jones, but if it's only a sprain and he lets it heal then he will be back in no time. Jones will look to get back to his old ways at the plate when he returns, and the Orioles will need to find someone else to produce for them.

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.

This spring, he boasts an OPS of nearly .900 with half of his hits going for extra bases.
