Jones (back) is in the lineup for Friday's game against Cleveland, batting leadoff and playing center field.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran center fielder got the day off Thursday after experiencing some back spasms earlier in the Orioles' series against the Yankees. He'll draw back into his usual role as the leadoff man and center fielder for Friday's series opener against the red-hot Cleveland Indians. Jones is batting .167 with no extra base hits since returning from the All-Star break.

Jones (back) is out of the lineup Thursday against the Yankees, the Baltimore Sun's Eduardo Encina reports.

EDGE Analysis

He left Wednesday night's game due to back spasms and it's not surprising to see him out for Thursday's day game. Julio Borbon will get the start in center field and hit ninth. Jones should be considered day-to-day for now.

Jones departed Wednesday's game following his at-bat in the eighth inning due to back spasms, Rich Dubroff of CSN Mid Atlantic reports.

EDGE Analysis

While spasms could cost the veteran center fielder a couple games, it appears he's escaped a serious injury. Expect another update prior to Thursday's contest on his status, with an alignment that could include Julio Borbon should Jones sit out.

Jones went 3-for-4 with a walk and a double in Sunday's win over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

He's now hit safely in 19 of his last 20 games, pushing his slash line on the season up to .268/.316/.460. Jones suffered through an awful first couple of months, but he appears poised to make up for it in the second half.

Jones went 4-for-4 with a walk, a double, two runs scored and an RBI in Sunday's 12-5 rout of the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

It took a while, but the real Adam Jones seems to have finally shown up this season. Over the course of his current eight-game hitting streak he's batting .429 (15-for-35) with two home runs, eight RBI and 10 runs scored.

Jones went 2-for-3 with homer, two RBI and two runs in a 8-6 victory over the Rays in the second half of a day-night double header on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The center fielder went 4-for-8 (.500) with three RBI and a walk in the double header. Jones has a seven-game hitting streak and hits in 13 of his last 14 games. He is batting .254 with 15 homers, 47 RBI, 44 runs and one steal.

Jones went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and a pair of strikeouts against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

This has been a trying campaign for the 30-year-old center fielder, but he's now hit safely in four straight games, socking three homers in that span. It seems likely that Jones' BABIP luck will correct itself in the near future, but his career-low (by far) 12.9 percent line-drive rate doesn't bode well. Still, a course correction seems likely as the season goes on.

Jones went 2-for-4 with a walk, two home runs and three RBI in Sunday's 10-9 loss to the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

He's definitely found him power stroke in June, and Jones now has six homers and 12 RBI in 52 at-bats on the month. He's still only hitting .250 during those 12 games, but if you've stuck with him this long it's at least encouraging to see him return some kind of value.

Jones went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-1 victory over the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder has started coming on in June while hitting out of the leadoff spot. Jones has already tallied three multi-hit outings over the first seven games of the new month, and he now has four homers and eight RBI over that span as well. The long-ball total already equals the amount he hit in all of May, and is only one away from his season total entering June. Jones' average was .198 just one month ago on May 7, but he's now boosted that figure 45 points to .243.

Jones went 2-for-5 with two home runs, three RBI and a strikeout against Boston on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Jones went yard in the fifth and eighth innings, and he caused plenty of damage from the top of the lineup. Jones seems to be heating up at the plate of late, hitting safely in five of the past seven games, and he's collected six RBI over that span.
