|Pirates non-tender Garrett Jones |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(12/3/13) The Pirates have non-tendered first baseman Garrett Jones .
Jones has recently designated for assignment, so the move shouldn't come as a big surprise. Though he's coming off a down year, in which he hit .233, Jones has been an above-average hitter against right-handed pitching throughout his career. He owns a .271/.337/.489 line against righties.

2014 Marlins preview: Likes, dislikes
What do we like about the Marlins heading into 2014? Quite a bit, surprisingly.
|Garrett Jones seemed to have found his niche with the Pirates. Every time they faced a righty, he'd be in the lineup either at first base or in right field, and in the end, he'd have another 15-20 homers. It was nothing fancy, but it was useful enough that most of us believed it would continue forevermore. Instead, the Pirates non-tendered Jones, turning him loose on the open market. The Marlins, realizing they need help wherever they can get it, scooped him up intending to make him their everyday first baseman. Most likely, though, his value remains more or less the same in Fantasy. He won't have as good of a supporting cast, and what he gains in counting stats he's likely to lose in percentages. There's a reason the Pirates sat him against lefties, after all. Though Jones is likely to deliver another 15-20 homers, or perhaps a few more, his other numbers will make him at best a fringe contributor in mixed leagues. He's more of an NL-only option.
