Orioles | Adam Jones tanks against John Danks

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 08:49:58 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones is 1-for-33 (.030) lifetime against Chicago White Sox SP John Danks, who toes the rubber Thursday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Batter vs. pitcher splits are so subjective and don't hold a lot of weight. However, this is a large sample size, and there appears to be something the lefty does that has Jones off balance. Add in that Jones has a .196-1-5 line to open the year, and he might be one to avoid in DFS today.

Orioles | Adam Jones back in lineup

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 14:47:43 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (illness) is back in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Wednesday, April 20, after leaving the game with a stomach virus Tuesday, April 19. Jones went to a local hospital Tuesday and was given fluids and anti-nausea medication.

Fantasy Tip: Get Jones back into your lineups immediately. Jones is hitting just .120 (3-for-25) with six strikeouts in his career against Dickey. However, Dickey hasn't been sharp at all to begin the year, so things could change tonight. Consider Jones a daily under-the-radar pick because of his slow start after missed time due to injury.

Orioles | Adam Jones returns to lineup vs. Texas

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 13:47:37 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (rib cage) is starting in center field and batting third against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels Thursday, April 14.

Fantasy Tip: Jones missed a week with the injury and has just 10 plate appearances this season. You'll want to return him to your lineups in the majority of seasonal leagues, but you'll likely want to stay clear of Jones in daily contests with a tough matchup against Hamels. Jones does have a .308/.355/.536 slash line against southpaws dating back to the beginning of 2014, though.

Orioles | Adam Jones sits again

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 12:44:05 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (rib cage) is once again out of the starting lineup Wednesday, April 13. OF Joey Rickard remains in center field and is leading off, while OF Hyun-soo Kim is starting in left and batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly.

Fantasy Tip: Kim is making just his second major league start and looked heavily overmatched all spring. While hitting at the bottom of the order especially, he has little value to daily gamers Tuesday.

Orioles | Adam Jones available Tuesday

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 14:34:36 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (rib cage) isn't completely pain-free when he swings, but manager Buck Showalter said Jones is available off the bench again Tuesday, April 12.

Fantasy Tip: Jones entered the game as a defensive replacement Monday, which is significant because the O's wouldn't risk Jones playing if they felt it was possible he would land on the DL. Jones could return as soon as Wednesday, and you should get him back into all lineups once he's ready.

Orioles | Still no Adam Jones in lineup

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 13:23:56 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (rib cage) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 12. OF Joey Rickard is starting in center field again and hitting leadoff, while 2B Ryan Flaherty is starting in left field and batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz.

Fantasy Tip: Jones hasn't started since last Wednesday but could return as soon as tomorrow. There remains a chance he'll land on the DL, so prepare for that possibility. Rickard has been a nice surprise all spring and to start the year, hitting .409 (9-for-22 with a homer) and continues to be a cheap value play in daily formats. You can ignore Flaherty everywhere.

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 15:38:30 -0700

Updating previous reports, Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (rib cage) is "very close" to returning, and manager Buck Showalter hopes Jones can return during the three-game series with the Boston Red Sox.

Orioles | Adam Jones feeling better

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 10:41:32 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (rib cage) did some running and throwing before the game Monday, April 11, but he remained out of the lineup. "I think I can play today, but it's probably not the best idea with the way Rickard is playing, Reimold's playing good, Trumbo's playing good," Jones said. Jones remains day-to-day but is feeling better. The cold weather is another reason Baltimore is being cautious. Manager Buck Showalter cannot provide a timetable for when Jones will be ready.

Fantasy Tip: Jones doesn't sound like he'll go on the disabled list, but he must return to the lineup soon. Keeping him on the bench in weekly leagues might be the safe way to play it, but he could return as early as Tuesday. Once he's back in there you should return him to all of your fantasy lineups.
