James Jones up, Erasmo Ramirez down for Mariners
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/11/14) The Mariners have recalled outfielder James Jones from Triple-A Tacoma and demoted right-hander Erasmo Ramirez.
Ramirez has overcome control problems to perform well recently, but has not maintained a starting spot. He has yielded just four earned runs on 19 hits in last 31 1/3 innings pitched, but has also walked 19.
Despite lowering his ERA from 6.82 to 4.06, a lack of run support has continued to prevent Ramirez from earning a win since April 1.
James Jones, Stefen Romero sent down after deadline
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(8/1/14) The Mariners made room on the active roster for their trade deadline acquisitions by optioning outfielders Stefen Romero and James Jones to Triple-A Tacoma Friday.
Jones was hitting .258/.287/.313 with 20 stolen bases in 79 games for the Mariners.
James Jones scores three, drives in two

|(7/2/14) Mariners outfielder James Jones put together another solid game Tuesday, in a 13-2 win over the Astros.
Jones has sparked two straight big wins over the Astros, following his four-hit game Monday. He went 3 for 6 Tuesday with three runs scored. He added two RBI to go with a triple in the win.
Jones has raised his season average 20 points over the last two games, as he is now hitting .295/.325/.365 in 200 at-bats.
|2014 summary: An unknown coming into the season, James Jones made a quick impression when he arrived early on, capturing a starting role with a .294 batting average and 12 stolen bases (in 13 attempts) over his first 46 games. But his slap-hitting ways ultimately exposed him as a spare-outfielder type. He hit only .201 the rest of the way (though he did go 15 for 15 on stolen bases) and spent much of August back at Triple-A.|
Playing time status: The Mariners are said to really like Jones, whose most notable quality other than his speed is that he wears No. 99. (seriously, he's not even a good defender), but even they seem to realize he's not fit to start for a team with playoff aspirations, having acquired Seth Smith for their one outfield opening this offseason.
2015 outlook: It's possible that slumps or injuries could earn Jones another shot in the Mariners lineup, especially if they're looking to add an element of speed to it, but chances are he won't hit enough to stay there. As a cheap steals specialist, he's a worthy pick in AL-only Rotisserie leagues, but that's about it.
