Yankees' Garrett Jones ready for position battle with Alex Rodriguez
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/28/15) New Yankees infielder Garrett Jones knows third base currently belongs to Alex Rodriguez. However, the 33-year-old is envisioning a scenario where he and A-Rod are both able to play equally throughout the season.
"That's what it comes down to," Jones said to NJ.com. "When he's getting his opportunity, he'll do his thing. And when I'm getting my opportunity, I'm going to do what I do. In a perfect world, we're both swinging the beat well and we're both in their on a regular basis."
Jones struggled to hit the ball well in 2014, hitting .246 with 15 homeruns and 53 RBI.
"It can mess with you," Jones said. "As a hitter, do I need to do extra? Do I need to change my swing? Do I not have as much power as I used to? A lot of things are going through your head. You try to not let it bother you but for a guy that's supposed to be driving the ball and having home runs, it's part of my game. ... I was trying to pull everything and it turned getting around too much on the ball and I just lost. I was getting pounded (with) sinkers away and I lost that approach to drive the ball to left-center."
Yankees 1B Jones trying not to 'drool' over short porch
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12/22/14) Yankees recently acquired first baseman/designated hitter Garrett Jones anticipates getting plenty of action for his new team.
Jones added in an interview with MLB Network Radio that "you start drooling as a power guy" over the short porch in right field at Yankee Stadium, but that he does not want to alter his approach at the plate.
His power numbers have decreased over the last two seasons. Jones slugged 30 home runs in 899 at-bats in 2013 and 2014 combined after mashing 27 in 475 at-bats in 2012.

Marlins, Yankees formally announce five-player trade
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/19/14) The Marlins and Yankees formally announced a five player trade on Friday, per MLB.com. The Marlins acquired infielder Martin Prado and pitcher David Phelps from New York in exchange for Nathan Eovaldi, Garrett Jones and Domingo German. Miami also received an undisclosed amount of cash in the deal.
Prado hit .282 with 12 homers and 58 RBI in 143 games played between the Yankees and Diamondbacks. Phelps went 5-5 with a 4.38 ERA and 92 strikeouts over 113 innings pitched.
Eovaldi registered a 4.37 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP and 142:43 K:BB ratio over 199 2/3 innings as a starter in Miami. Jones hit .246 with 15 homers and 53 RBI over 496 at-bats in his lone season with the Marlins.
Marlins acquire Martin Prado in trade with Yankees
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|

The Marlins will also receive an undisclosed amount of cash in the deal.
Report: Marlins starting to field trade inquiries on Garrett Jones
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/16/14) With the reports the Marlins have agreed to a two-year deal with Michael Morse, the Marlins are already receiving trade inquiries about first baseman Garrett Jones, according to MLB.com.
The Marlins still could keep Jones as a left-handed bat off the bench, but his $5 million salary could be make him too expensive of a bench option. Jones hit .246 with 15 home runs, 33 doubles and 53 RBI in 146 games last season for Miami.
|2014 Summary: The Marlins signed Garrett Jones to a two-year, $7.8 million deal prior to the season in the hopes that he could bolster production at first base, where the previous occupants had languished for years. Jones was unable to rebound from a disappointing 2013 season with the Pirates, and in fact, he equaled his home run total of 15 from the year before, but in 93 more at-bats. After slashing .286/.353/.518 through May 23, he made little impact the rest of the way, as reflected in a .226/.286/.357 slash line, and he sat frequently over the final month of the season. In the offseason, the Marlins traded Jones to the Yankees in a five-player swap.
Playing time status: Between serving as a fill-in at first base and in the outfield corners and seeing some at-bats as the Yankees' designated hitter, Jones has a chance at getting fairly steady playing time.
2015 Outlook: The only way that Jones achieves any Fantasy value this season is if he gets close to regular at-bats. Even then, he would only need to be used in AL-only formats. He can be passed over on Draft Day in most mixed leagues.
