Mariners' McClendon on James Jones: 'He's improved quite a bit'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2015) Mariners outfielder James Jones came into the spring with a new batting approach, lowering his hands at the plate, and it's paid off thus far this spring, MLB.com reports.

"He's playing well," manager Lloyd McClendon said. "The bat speed is better. He's had some big hits this spring. He's improved quite a bit."

Jones has picked things up after a slow Cactus League start, and he's 5 for 11 a double, a triple and five runs scored in his last four games. However, he's likely on the outside looking in for one of the team's bench spots.

"There's going to be competition wherever you go," Jones said. "If there's no competition, you have to ask yourself if you're even trying. I like the competition. It makes it good for everybody. This is a really talented group -- good hitters and guys who can play all the positions. I'm definitely picking their brains."


Seattle shuffles their roster Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

James Jones up, Erasmo Ramirez down for Mariners


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) The Mariners have recalled outfielder James Jones  from Triple-A Tacoma and demoted right-hander Erasmo Ramirez.

Ramirez has overcome control problems to perform well recently, but has not maintained a starting spot. He has yielded just four earned runs on 19 hits in last 31 1/3 innings pitched, but has also walked 19.

Despite lowering his ERA from 6.82 to 4.06, a lack of run support has continued to prevent Ramirez from earning a win since April 1.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Mariners made room on the active roster for their trade deadline acquisitions by optioning outfielders Stefen Romero and James Jones to Triple-A Tacoma Friday.

Jones was hitting .258/.287/.313 with 20 stolen bases in 79 games for the Mariners. 


James Jones scores three, drives in two


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Mariners outfielder James Jones put together another solid game Tuesday, in a 13-2 win over the Astros.

Jones has sparked two straight big wins over the Astros, following his four-hit game Monday. He went 3 for 6 Tuesday with three runs scored. He added two RBI to go with a triple in the win.

Jones has raised his season average 20 points over the last two games, as he is now hitting .295/.325/.365 in 200 at-bats.  


James Jones totals four hits, three SBs in 10-4 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2014) Mariners rookie outfielder James Jones had one of his best performances of the season during a 10-4 win Monday at Houston. He totaled a career-high four hits -- all singles -- and had his second three stolen-base game of the season.

Jones, who added two runs Monday, finished June with a .292 average, .306 on-base percentage, .321 slugging percentage, .626 OPS, one double, one triple, five RBI, 14 runs and 12 stolen bases in 28 games.


James Jones not so trustworthy still


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2014) With three stolen bases Monday, James Jones is up to 10 on the year, which is especially impressive considering he didn't get his first until May 7.

But after getting off to a roaring start when he took over as the Mariners' starting center fielder in mid-May, stolen bases are about all he's provided.

Sure, he's hit a respectable .316 (12 for 38) over his last nine games, but with only one extra-base hit. And considering he has just one walk in his last 24 games, he'll need to hit that well to reach base often enough to factor in Fantasy. In those 24 games, he has just a .266 on-base percentage.

Ultimately, if Jones doesn't get on base often enough, the Mariners will find someone who does, so while adding him isn't such a terrible idea if you need steals, you wouldn't want to count on him for too much either.


James Jones swipes three bases Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) Mariners outfielder James Jones went 1 for 5 with two runs and three stolen bases in his team's 5-1 win over the Padres Monday.

Jones reached on a fielder's choice in the first inning and then stole second base and third base before being driven in by a home run. He reached on another fielder's choice one inning later and stole second again, coming home on a double by the next batter. Jones finally reached base safely with a single in the fourth inning, but he was somewhat appropriately erased at second base by a fielder's choice. Jones has hit .281/.318/.356 with 22 runs and 10 stolen bases in 146 at-bats.


James Jones hits third triple


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(6/8/2014) Mariners outfielder James Jones went 2 for 5 with a two-run triple and a run scored in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Rays. It was Jones' third triple this year. He's hitting .274 with five RBI in 113 at-bats.

James Jones not bothered by leg


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(6/2/2014) Mariners rookie outfielder James Jones, who left Sunday's game with leg tightness, was back in the lineup Monday against the Yankees, reports MLB.com. 

James Jones doing better than expected


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2014) Mariners rookie outfielder James Jones extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a 1-for-5 performance Saturday against the Astros. Jones also has at least one hit in his first 15 starts, which is a club record.

"I didn't think he would be overmatched at this level, I didn't think he'd do as well as he's done this quickly," manager Lloyd McClendon said, per MLB.com. "Does it surprise me? Not really. He's a very talented young man. Very athletic. His speed causes problems on the baseball field for other teams. We knew he was capable of this with what we saw in spring training. He's probably a little faster than I thought he would be."


James Jones extends hitting streak to nine


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

Jesus Montero one of three demoted by Mariners


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2014) Mariners 2013 disappointment Jesus Montero, who has made the switch from catcher to first base, was optioned Friday to Triple-A Tacoma. Joining him among the demoted were outfielders James Jones and Xavier Avery.

Mariners add four to 40-man roster


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
