Adam Jones (CF)

Baltimore Orioles - 50% owned

Bats: R, Throws: R

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

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.

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

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.

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.
