Garrett Jones gets three hits in Yankees' win
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Garrett Jones made the most of the chance to start in right field for the Yankees. Filling in for Carlos Beltran, who was suffering from an illness, Jones went 3 for 4 in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.
Jones hit his first triple of the year and scored a run. He improved his average to .278.
Carlos Beltran out of Yankees' lineup again on Sunday
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Yankees right fielder Carlos Beltran is out of the starting lineup for the second straight day. Beltran missed Saturday's game with an illness, and he's not in the lineup for Sunday's game.
Garrett Jones gets the start in right for the Yankees. He'll bat seventh in the order.
Catcher Brian McCann is also not in the lineup. JR Murphy will start and bat eighth.
Yankees' Brett Gardner, Alex Rodriguez out of lineup Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner and designated hitter Alex Rodriguez are not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles.
Gardner is out of the lineup as expected after getting hit on the wrist by a pitch Monday. While he may be able to pinch run or serve as a defensive replacement Tuesday, he's unlikely to bat, the New York Daily News reports. Manager Joe Girardi hopes Gardner's ready to return to the starting lineup by Friday.
Rodriguez made his first start at third base Monday. With both players sidelined, Garrett Jones will bat sixth and DH, and Chris Young will bat seventh and man left field.
"You can't forget (that) it’s a long season," Joe Girardi said, per NJ.com. "When he's going good, you're going to want to keep him in there every day. That's how your guys get fatigued and that's how they end up injuring something in their leg. I have to guard against that. That's why I thought today was a great day to give him off."
The Yankees are underdogs (+110) against the Orioles Tuesday, per VegasInsider.com.
Garrett Jones nearly served as a reliever in Yankees' 19-inning loss
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/11/15) Yankees first baseman Garrett Jones nearly made an appearance as relief pitcher in Saturday's 19-inning marathon defeat to the Red Sox, MLB.com reports.
"I was definitely really pumped to be out there," Jones said. "As a position player, it's always a thought in the back of your mind, 'I'd love to pitch.' Everyone thinks he can pitch. It would have been fun to just get out there and do it. But, at the same time, I wanted to get him out, as well. I would have been having fun, but I would have been competing."
Jones, who hasn't pitched in a game since his high school days (1999), was prepared to face David Ortiz in the 19th, but Esmil Rogers got Dustin Pedroia to line out to right field on his 81st and final pitch of the night to end the inning.
"I was trying to think back to some of the things I remembered," Jones said. "I was just going to go in there and try to throw strikes, not try to be too fancy. Hopefully throw strikes and get him out; throw under the hit speed."
Yankees 1B Garrett Jones only out one day due to illness
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/11/15) Yankees first baseman Garrett Jones returned to the spring lineup Wednesday against the Red Sox after being scratched Tuesday due to an illness. He went 0 for 2 with a strikeout in his return.
|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.
