Jones went 1-for-5 with a solo homer and walk in Friday's 8-1 victory over the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder launched the first of two fifth-inning round-trippers off Michael Pineda, his 29th blast of the season. Jones has now hit 29 homers for the second time in the last three seasons and one final bomb over the last two games of the campaign will give the third 30-homer season of his career.

Jones went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in a 5-2 loss at the hands of the Red Sox on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

The homer came in the bottom of the eighth with the orioles down 5-1, but was not enough as Rick Porcello went the distance. It was Jones' 28th homer of the year, surpassing the 27 he hit last season. Yet Jones has hit just 19 doubles in 2016 for a slugging percentage of .454, a level of power production he has not dipped to since 2010.

Jones went 2-for-3 with a game-tying RBI single and run in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger knotted things up at 3-3 with his run-scoring hit in the eighth that drove in Michael Bourn, a tie that would dissipate in the home half of the frame on a Victor Martinez solo homer. After a resurgent August that helped turn his season around, Jones is enjoying a solid start to September, slashing .323/.344/.516 with a pair of homers and four RBI over his first 31 at-bats of the month.

Manager Buck Showalter indicated Wednesday that he expects Jones to rejoin the lineup Friday against the Yankees, Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was considered a candidate to play Wednesday but was not a member of the starting lineup. His hamstring appears to be doing well and he should retake his spot in center field and atop Baltimore's order as the open a series against the division rival Yankees, with the newly-acquired Michael Bourn available should Jones not be ready to go.

Jones (hamstring) may be available to play Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones has been out since Aug. 26 dealing with a hamstring issue, but the Orioles' center fielder seems very close to returning. The club has been very cautious with Jones, so it's likely that they'll give him the night off and continue working towards their goal of having him back Friday. However, knowing that he'd be available to play is promising nonetheless.

Jones (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Buck Showalter will give Jones another day to rest ahead of Baltimore's off-day Thursday. There is still optimism that Jones won't require a stint on the disabled list, but Wednesday does mark his fifth consecutive day out of the lineup. Nolan Reimold will get another start in center field in place of Jones on Wednesday.
