|Jeff Baker in, Garrett Jones out of Saturday lineup |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(4/19/14) The presence of left-hander Reonis Elias on the mound for the Mariners has kept Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones off the lineup card Saturday.
Jones has received a decent shot to prove he can hit southpaws this season. He is 4 for 19 against them, but will sit against Elias in favor of Jeff Baker, who owns a .103 batting average this season.
|Garrett Jones drives in two in loss |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(4/10/14) Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones snapped out of a funk Wednesday against the Nationals, with his first three-hit game of the season.
Jones went 3 for 4 in the 10-7 loss, with a double and a pair of singles. He drove in two runs and could have had three, but Giancarlo Stanton was thrown out trying to score on Jones' eighth-inning double.
Jones is now hitting .273/.359/.333 through nine games, though he has yet to homer.
|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.
|Pirates drop Garrett Jones from 40-man roster |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(11/25/13) The Pirates designated first baseman/outfielder Garrett Jones for assignment Monday.
Jones had been the Pirates' primary first baseman prior to the arrival of Justin Morneau from the Twins on Aug. 31. He hit .233 with 15 home runs and 51 RBI in 403 at-bats.
|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.
