Jones went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk in a loss against the Reds on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

For a guy who consistently hits close to 30 homers every season, Jones got little love in this year's drafts, but he's off to a solid start with three homers and a .277 average in 12 games. The veteran center fielder looks like he's set for another typical campaign by his standards while hitting in a power-packed Baltimore lineup.

Jones went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

The 31-year-old has two hits through the first two games of the season, and both have gone for extra bases. Jones has been a rock-solid power source for the O's, recording at least 25 homers and 80 RBI in six straight seasons, and he's off to a good start in his quest to make it seven straight.

Jones went 1-for-4 with a walk and scored a run in Monday's regular-season opener against the Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Hitting second in the order, Jones smacked a double off Marco Estrada in his first at-bat of the season. After drawing a free pass in the third inning, the veteran outfielder came around to score and gave the O's an early 2-0 lead. He failed to reach base in each of his next three plate appearances, but overall it was a productive effort for Jones on Opening Day.

Jones -- who hit from the leadoff spot in 73 percent of his at-bats last season -- will move down in the batting order this year, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones batted second last night for Team USA and he hit from the two-hole in all six of his spring games with the Orioles. The newly-acquired Seth Smith is expected to take over the top spot in the lineup while all indications suggest Jones will slot in at No. 2 on the card when Opening Day rolls around. In 605 career at-bats as the second hitter, Jones owns a .291/.337/.479 slash line. Moving out of the leadoff spot should give the veteran center fielder a bump in RBI chances while enjoying the protection of Manny Machado looming in the on-deck circle during Jones' at-bats.

EDGE Analysis

Jones will leave the Orioles spring training camp on March 6 to join Team USA for the World Baseball Classic, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Position players report to Sarasota on Friday, giving Jones a little more than two full weeks with his MLB club. The center fielder played for Team USA in the 2013 WBC, but his performance was less than impressive (.182/.240/.227 with six strikeouts in 22 at-bats). However, that slump didn't carry over to the big league season, as the 10-year-veteran had a season-high .327 batting average in April that year. With that said, owners shouldn't put too much stock in Jones' WBC performance.

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 3-for-4 with a home run, walk and two RBI in the 11-3 blowout victory over the Tigers on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Jones hit a lead-off solo bomb in the first to get the game started on the right foot for the Orioles, and then knocked in another run on a single during the third. He is 5-for-7 (.714) with three RBI in the weekend series. Jones also has five multi-hit games since Sept. 2.

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.
