Latest Update James Jones is not in the Mariners' starting lineup on Thursday. Thu Jul, 31, 05:15 PM
A great athlete, he has the range to cover the ground in center field. Steals plenty of bases. Blessed with a great arm, he boasts an intriguing power/speed combination at the plate at lower levels. Can hit fastballs.
Flaws: : Struggles mightily with breaking pitches, which leads to too many strikeouts, especially against left-handed pitching. In general, he's still a bit too raw in several aspects of the game. Lacks consistency.
Mired in a 2-for-35 slump, Jones will take a seat Thursday. Endy Chavez will move to center field with Corey Hart playing right field. With the recent acquisition of Chris Denorfia, it looks like Jones could be headed back to Triple-A Tacoma soon.Analyst: Howard Bender
After going 0-for-10 over the last two games, Jones will get the day off Sunday to clear his head. Endy Chavez will hold down the fort in center field for the day.Analyst: Howard Bender
James Jones has been Dyno-MITE over his last two games as he has seven hits in 11 at-bats with a triple, two RBI, three runs scored, and three stolen bases. He is worth picking up in deeper mixed league formats while he is hot.Analyst: Michael Pichan
The four hits in a game were a career best for the rookie who recorded his second career three-steal game. Jones is now batting .289 on the year with six RBI, no home runs, 30 runs scored, and 17 steals in 18 attempts making him a valuable asset if you need some additional help in steals, runs, and possibly average going forward.Analyst: Michael Pichan
