Latest Update Mariners recalled James Jones from Triple-A Tacoma. Fri Aug, 29, 05:51 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.
The speedy outfielder struggled mightily before being sent down to Triple-A two weeks ago. The Mariners decided that they could use his speed, hence the recall. Erasmo Ramirez was optioned to Triple-A to make room for Jones on the 25-man roster.Analyst: David Kerr

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
