Orioles OF Adam Jones not getting caught up in spring numbers
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/21/15) Orioles outfielder Adam Jones has had a relatively quiet spring at the plate, batting just .214 (6 for 28) with one home run and three RBI in 10 games. Although, his spring numbers don't seem to be a concern to the Orioles or Jones, per MASNsports.com.
"All I know is my body is starting to feel better, getting over that soreness," he said. "About the 24th, 25th, after that off-day, I'm going to start stretching out and getting back-to-back full games and get ready for the season.
"If anyone really looks at spring training numbers, look at Greg Maddux's spring training over his career. I think when the lights turn on and it matters most, that's when it counts. I don't think spring numbers really matter to me. I'm sure fans always look at something to complain about, talk about something. I know what our manager, what we've got going on here, it's all about April 6 through that last game of the season. That's what's important here."
Orioles' Adam Jones 'glad' Nick Markakis finally 'said something'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/26/15) Former Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis fired the first shot Wednesday, when he vented to USA Today that he was not happy with how the Orioles handled contract negotiations this offseason before he signed a four-year, $44 million contract with the Braves.
"Don't believe a word they say," Markakis said. "It was all because of my neck. They can say what they want to make them look good. It's all B.S. But things work out the way they do for a reason, right?"
Markakis underwent neck surgery in mid-December and his status for opening day is undetermined. However, he is clearly upset with what went on in negotiations and while the Orioles front office has yet to respond, former teammate and friend Adam Jones took his turn Thursday to respond to Markakis' comments.
"I know what's going on, I know the truth," the Orioles' All-Star center fielder said, per MASNsports.com. "It's a move he made for himself. I never fault him for it.
"I talk to him all the time. I talk to him a couple times a week. I talked to him yesterday. It's not my situation, it's his situation with the Orioles. I'm not going to take anbody's side. I wasn't involved with it, so I really don't have an opinion with it."
Markakis, who had surgery to remove a herniated disc and fuse vertabrea, had been playing with the injury for two seasons.
"He never disclosed anything to anybody. He just goes out and plays," Jones said. "...He moved on. He understands the business and he moved on. He completely gets it. No hard feelings.
"I'm glad he said something because he never says anything. I'm glad he said something. He should say something. He has a lot on his mind. Very articulate man, very smart man. He doesn't say much, but when he does people listen, and he's got peoples attention. That's why you all are in front of me now."
New O's hitting coach won't tinker much with Adam Jones' approach
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/6/15) While Orioles outfielder Adam Jones is a four-time All-Star, four-time Gold Glove winner and one-time Silver Slugger winner, perhaps one of his biggest weaknesses is his plate discipline. He usually doesn't draw a lot of walks, which is evident by his career .320 on-base percentage.
New Orioles hitting coach Scott Coolbaugh is aware of Jones' aggressive approach at the plate, but added he won't try to do much to change his approach, per MASNsports.com.
"I think there are some things you can work with," Coolbaugh said. "The first thing is you really have to get into Adam's mind and try to figure out what goes through his mind in some of those at-bats. Maybe there's some things that he's doing from the mental side that can help slow him down.
"It could be a possibility of maybe even just eliminating a certain pitch that he tries to hit. But one thing about Adam is he is aggressive, he's able to hit some pitches that probably other guys can't just because he has that aggressiveness and he's a super talent, and that's why a lot of times his numbers are what they are.
"You really don't want to take away anything that makes him comfortable. Just try to maybe eliminate and take away some anxiety sometimes so you can eliminate some of those bad at-bats and keep the consistency going, because if we can do that, maybe there's a few more walks that get thrown in there."
Orioles' Adam Jones goes deep in loss
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(10/11/14) Orioles outfielder Adam Jones went deep in the team's loss Saturday.
Jones struck in the third inning. With a man on base, Jones took a 95 mph fastball out to left to tie the game 3-3. Jones also singled in the contest. He finished 2 for 5, with one run scored and two RBI.
Orioles OF Adam Jones: I need to temper aggressive approach
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/11/14) Orioles slugger Adam Jones has conceded that he must temper his aggressiveness at the plate in the postseason.
Jones is just 5 of 42 in the playoffs for a meager .119 average.
"I just think that what I do in the regular season, I think I need to cut back a little bit more in the postseason," he told CSNBaltimore.com. "I think it intensifies when the postseason comes on, the strike zone is smaller. Every pitch is that more of importance. And you've got to lock in better. It's the same game; it's just the focus has to be stronger."
One problem is that the studs in the Kansas City bullpen don't allow home runs. Jones was 6 for 27 against Wade Davis and Kelvin Herrera combined in the regular season. Neither yielded a tater all year.
|2014 summary: Adam Jones bolstered his reputation for consistency, turning in his fifth straight season with a batting average between .280 and .290, and his fourth in a row with at least 25 home runs and 80 RBI. He also continued to be one of the more durable players in Fantasy, missing only three games all season for the Orioles. In piling up 682 plate appearances, Jones was able to parlay his counting stats (29 HR, 96 RBI, 88 runs) into a top 10 ranking among outfielders in standard Head-to-Head and Rotisserie formats.
Playing time status: Jones has now played in all but six regular season games over the last three seasons. He is as reliable as they come, and there is no reason to expect playing time will be an issue in 2015.
2015 outlook: Aside from drops in an already low walk rate (from 3.6 to 2.8 percent) and in his stolen base total (from 14 to 7), there are no signs of decline for the 29-year-old Jones. He should provide owners with another year of peak-level performance and finish again as a top 10 outfielder.
