Latest Update Garrett Jones hits 15th home run Sat Sep, 13, 10:04 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 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
The Marlins have realized that Jones is over-used if he is a regular player on a team. His average is below career norms, and he will most likely receive ample days off down the stretch. If you have Jones on your roster, go ahead and drop him for a better option.Analyst: Colby Conway
The Marlins are giving Garrett Jones the night off and shifting Jeff Baker over to play first base tonight against the Mets. Analyst: Drew Phelps
After going just 2-for-28 (.071) over a nine-game stretch, Jones has now hit safely in back-to-back games and plugged his first home run in 12 games. He's certainly earned the right to have first base all to himself in Miami, but for fantasy purposes, his ineptitude against left-handed pitching continue to keep his overall numbers down now that he's facing them a little more often. If you can actually platoon him with a solid right-handed bat in your lineup, then you'll be getting the best of both worlds and solidifying yourself if you're using him at the corner infield spot. On his own though, you have to keep your expectations low.Analyst: Howard Bender
