Adam Jones CF BAL 3 weeks ago

Jones supplied all of the Orioles offense Sunday against the Nationals, finishing 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs.

After failing to top five home runs in any one month of the season, Jones has hit four in the last week. The slugger finally appears to be over the shoulder injury that affected him during the first half of the season and should continue to produce at a rate we are accustomed to seeing in the second half.

Jones went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Saturday's loss to the White Sox.

Jones has just one extra-base hit since June 12 and is just 5-for-29 since sustaining a shoulder injury June 15. The shoulder injury is supposedly behind Jones, but he has not yielded fruitful numbers in three weeks.

Jones is out of the lineup for game two of Sunday's double header against the Indians, Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com reports.

Jones had been battling a shoulder injury, but was able to play in the first game on Sunday. It's likely the team is just being precautionary with Jones for the second game just so he doesn't re-injure the shoulder or have a setback. David Lough will be playing center field and batting ninth in Jones's absence.

Jones (shoulder) will make his return to the lineup for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Indians, Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

After testing his shoulder out by throwing the last three days and appearing no worse for the wear, Jones will sidle back in as the Orioles' center fielder for the first time since June 20. Manager Buck Showalter wouldn't confirm that Jones would play all 18 innings Sunday, as the team will wait and see how he makes it through Game 1 before deciding on his status for the nightcap.

Jones (shoulder) played catch again on Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

Jones has now tested his shoulder two days in a row, which is an encouraging sign that he may be able to avoid a DL stint. Saturday was intended to be manager Buck Showalter's cutoff date on deciding whether Jones would need a stint on the DL, but the rainout muddies that situation a bit. The Orioles play a double header on Sunday, so it's unlikely that they would play Jones in both games unless they choose to use him at DH.

Manager Buck Showalter told reporters that Saturday would be the cutoff date for deciding whether to put Jones (shoulder) on the disabled list, Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Jones was able to throw Friday for the first time since last weekend's series opener with the Blue Jays. If his shoulder soreness lingers Saturday, he'd likely head to the DL but the Orioles could backdate his designation retroactive to June 21, meaning a possible return on July 6.

Jones (shoulder) is out of the lineup Friday against Cleveland, Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Jones has effectively missed an entire week of games in an attempt to get his shoulder healthy enough to avoid a stint on the disabled list. That said, he is listed as available as a pinch hitter for Friday's game. Continue to consider him day-to-day ahead of Saturday's game against the Indians.

Jones is out of the lineup Thursday and manager Buck Showalter is non-committal about him returning to the lineup Friday, Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Jones' shoulder continues to bother him as he misses yet another game. It's clear that Jones and the Orioles want to avoid a stint on the disabled list, but this will be his fourth straight missed game. Jones has not played in the field since last Monday and his status for Friday's game against Cleveland is up in the air.

Jones (shoulder) is out of the lineup Wednesday.

Jones' absence from Wednesday's lineup comes as little surprise as the center fielder believes he won't be able to return to the lineup until Friday. David Lough will remain in center field Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Jones (shoulder) said he doesn't believe he will be able to return until Friday, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.

Jones, who is not in Tuesday's lineup, said his shoulder is making progress, but he'll likely need another day or two before he's back in the lineup. The center fielder has not been officially ruled out beyond Tuesday, but at this point it appears almost certain that he'll miss at least another game. The Orioles start a three-game set in Boston on Tuesday before returning home to host the Indians for a weekend series, which begins Friday evening.
