Latest Update Jones collects three hits in Marlins win Thu Sep, 25, 10:10 PM
Is blessed with a big frame, good home-run power and solid overall athleticism. Has worked hard to become a patient hitter. Is versatile in the field.
Flaws: : Needs to show he can produce consistently (especially against left-handed pitching), because he is far too hot and cold for the big-league level.
Jones has had a season that more or less mirrored what he did in Pittsburgh last year. The Marlins have him locked up for another season.Analyst: David Kerr
Jones will sit for the second time in three games for Justin Bour. Bour will likely see some more time in the final weeks as the Marlin's are out of playoff contention.Analyst: Ben Diamond
The Marlins are trying to give their young players some playing time so they are starting Justin Bour in place of Jones. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Jones is now 6-for-19 (.316) over his last six games with two home runs, four RBI and three runs scored. Despite the nice run here, Jones is still slashing just .242/.310/.410 on the year and remains a streaky option at best. You can use him if you're looking for some cheap power, but you'll have to endure some batting average struggles as well.Analyst: Howard Bender
