Jones went 1-for-2 with a run scored in his return to the lineup Sunday against the Braves.
After receiving back-to-back days off to clear his head, Jones responded with a fifth inning leadoff double and would come around to score the games' first run. Slashing .241/.310/.398 for the season, the Marlins appear to finally be realizing that Jones is over-extended as an everyday player. Expect Jeff Baker and Justin Bour to continue to work in at-bats at first base down the stretch.

Jones is out of the Marlins' lineup again Saturday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
This comes as no surprise, with the Braves trotting out lefty Alex Wood on Saturday, but Jones sat Friday against right-hander Aaron Harang and it seems his opportunities may be scaled back a bit over the final weeks of the season. Jeff Mathis will start at first in place of Jones, who is batting just .206/.281/.325 since the intermission.

Jones is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Angels, Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Even with the DH option available to him in Anaheim, manager Mike Redmond will not budge from his stance of sitting Jones against opposing lefties. It's certainly understandable, given Jones' .203/.261/.250 batting line against southpaws this season. Jeff Baker will man first base and bat second against Hector Santiago.
