Orioles OF Alejandro De Aza returns to lineup Friday


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Orioles outfielder Alejandro De Aza is back in the lineup for Friday's game against the Red Sox, according to Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic. 

De Aza was given the day off on Thursday. De Aza has been enduring a 2-for-23 slump over his past six games and hasn't recorded a hit in his last 15 at-bats. De Aza will bat leadoff for the Orioles on Friday. 

Rey Navarro will hit seventh and catcher Caleb Joseph will bat eighth. Outfielder Adam Jones is hitting cleanup. 


Orioles outfielder Adam Jones continues torrid pace Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Orioles outfielder Adam Jones continues to swing one of the hottest bats in baseball and did more of the same Sunday, going 4 for 5 with a double, a home run and five RBI in Baltimore's 8-3 win over the Red Sox.

Jones  got things going early when he ripped an 0-1 pitch from Rick Porcello over the left center field wall for a two-run home run, his fifth of the season. Jones, who also singled twice, kept things rolling in the sixth when he ripped a double to deep center field with the bases loaded, driving home all three runners.

"I'm just trying to switch up some things, lay off offspeed and sit on fastballs the entire time," Jones said to MASN Sports. "If I get a hanging curveball or something, swing at it, but try to really hone in on not swinging at off-speed pitches early in the count to (not) get myself in a hole."

Jones now has a league-leading 16 RBI this season and is hitting .457 in 46 at-bats.


Orioles' Showalter on Adam Jones: 'He's seeing it and hitting it'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Orioles manager Buck Showalter praised center fielder Adam Jones, who's 11 for 17 with four home runs over his last five games but has walked just once this season, Wednesday, masnsports.com reports.

"He got going a little bit toward the end of spring. He was scuffling a little bit over there and all of a sudden he took off," Showalter said. "Adam's one of those guys where there's some convenient things to say and that fit, but they're not really the truth. If you go back on the pitches he's gotten for a base hit, maybe half of them are strikes. That's why it's so easy to sit there and go, 'Walk more.' Do you like 100 RBIs, do you like .289-300, do you like Gold Glove center field? Yeah, we'd like for him to be the perfect player, but there's no such thing. And we like him as he is. It can get frustrating for him sometimes, but it's kind of who he is. I can't tell you he's doing anything a whole lot different. He's seeing it and hitting it. He's whaling."

Jones has hit .429/.469/.929 with four home runs and 11 RBI in 28 at-bats.


Adam Jones homers, drives in two in Orioles win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Orioles center fielder Adam Jones hit a solo home run and drove in two runs in the Orioles' win on Tuesday. 

Jones went one for three, bringing his average to .429 on the season. He drove in the first two runs of the game with a solo homer in the first and a sacrifice fly in the third. 

"He’s one of the best hitters in the game," Yankee starter CC Sabathia said. "He got a two-seamer and put a good swing on it (in the first inning). I felt like we pitched him a little better after that. But he’s hot, and there’s nothing you can really do."

Jones has four home runs and 11 RBI on the year. 


Orioles' Adam Jones on hot start: 'I'm not going to jinx myself'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Orioles center fielder Adam Jones is 10 for 14 with three home runs and seven RBI in four games during his team's first homestand of the season. He's intent on not overanalyzing his offense while swinging the bat so well, masnsports.com reports.

"I never ask the why, just live with the results," Jones said. "I'm not going to jinx myself, not going to say I'm doing this or doing that. Just trying to be aggressive and get good pitches to hit and right now, I'm not missing them."

Jones was just 1 for 11 with a double and two RBI during the team's first series of the season but has exploded since coming home to Baltimore. He has two more home games against the Yankees on tap before hiting the road once again.

Jones has faced Tuesday starter CC Sabathia more than any other pitcher in his career, hitting .266/.304/.500 with three home runs and 12 RBI in 64 at-bats. The Orioles (-117) are favorites at home Tuesday.


Orioles center fielder Adam Jones continues early season tear


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Orioles center fielder Adam Jones went 3 for 4 at the plate Monday in Baltimore's 6-5 loss to the Yankees.

Jones reached on an infield single in the second and later scored on a Manny Machado double. Then, Jones ripped a two-run home run in the sixth off pitcher Michael Pineda to deep center, his third homer of the year. 

Jones, who now has nine RBI in 25 at-bats, is hitting .440 to start the season. 


Orioles center fielder Adam Jones rips second home run of the year


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Orioles center fielder Adam Jones went 2 for 3 from the plate in Sunday's 10-7 loss to the Blue Jays. Jones got things rolling early when he took a 1-1 pitch from Drew Hutchison to deep center field for a two-run home run. 

Jones followed that with an RBI single in the third to drive home Steve Pearce. He was also hit by a pitch in the contest. He boosted his average to .381 with two homers and seven RBI in 21 at-bats this season.


Orioles OF Adam Jones goes 4 for 4 in loss to Blue Jays


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Though his teammates and defense struggled throughout Friday's 12-5 loss to the Blue Jays, Orioles outfielder Adam Jones had a stellar individual performance. 

Jones went 4 for 4, had two RBI and scored two runs. Jones is now hitting .333 through four games. Two of Jones' hits were double and one was a solo home run in the first inning. 

"It's cool, all that individual stuff is cool," Jones said, via The Baltimore Sun. "But you know me, I'm a team guy. We didn't win, I didn't win. All that individual stuff means nothing if we don't win."


Orioles OF Adam Jones not getting caught up in spring numbers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2015) Orioles outfielder Adam Jones has had a relatively quiet spring at the plate, batting just .214 (6 for 28) with one home run and three RBI in 10 games. Although, his spring numbers don't seem to be a concern to the Orioles or Jones, per MASNsports.com.

"All I know is my body is starting to feel better, getting over that soreness," he said. "About the 24th, 25th, after that off-day, I'm going to start stretching out and getting back-to-back full games and get ready for the season.

"If anyone really looks at spring training numbers, look at Greg Maddux's spring training over his career. I think when the lights turn on and it matters most, that's when it counts. I don't think spring numbers really matter to me. I'm sure fans always look at something to complain about, talk about something. I know what our manager, what we've got going on here, it's all about April 6 through that last game of the season. That's what's important here."


Orioles' Adam Jones 'glad' Nick Markakis finally 'said something'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Former Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis fired the first shot Wednesday, when he vented to USA Today that he was not happy with how the Orioles handled contract negotiations this offseason before he signed a four-year, $44 million contract with the Braves.

"Don't believe a word they say," Markakis said. "It was all because of my neck. They can say what they want to make them look good. It's all B.S. But things work out the way they do for a reason, right?"

Markakis underwent neck surgery in mid-December and his status for opening day is undetermined. However, he is clearly upset with what went on in negotiations and while the Orioles front office has yet to respond, former teammate and friend Adam Jones took his turn Thursday to respond to Markakis' comments.

"I know what's going on, I know the truth," the Orioles' All-Star center fielder said, per MASNsports.com. "It's a move he made for himself. I never fault him for it.

"I talk to him all the time. I talk to him a couple times a week. I talked to him yesterday. It's not my situation, it's his situation with the Orioles. I'm not going to take anbody's side. I wasn't involved with it, so I really don't have an opinion with it."

Markakis, who had surgery to remove a herniated disc and fuse vertabrea, had been playing with the injury for two seasons.

"He never disclosed anything to anybody. He just goes out and plays," Jones said. "...He moved on. He understands the business and he moved on. He completely gets it. No hard feelings.

"I'm glad he said something because he never says anything. I'm glad he said something. He should say something. He has a lot on his mind. Very articulate man, very smart man. He doesn't say much, but when he does people listen, and he's got peoples attention. That's why you all are in front of me now."


New O's hitting coach won't tinker much with Adam Jones' approach


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) While Orioles outfielder Adam Jones is a four-time All-Star, four-time Gold Glove winner and one-time Silver Slugger winner, perhaps one of his biggest weaknesses is his plate discipline. He usually doesn't draw a lot of walks, which is evident by his career .320 on-base percentage.

New Orioles hitting coach Scott Coolbaugh is aware of Jones' aggressive approach at the plate, but added he won't try to do much to change his approach, per MASNsports.com.

"I think there are some things you can work with," Coolbaugh said. "The first thing is you really have to get into Adam's mind and try to figure out what goes through his mind in some of those at-bats. Maybe there's some things that he's doing from the mental side that can help slow him down.

"It could be a possibility of maybe even just eliminating a certain pitch that he tries to hit. But one thing about Adam is he is aggressive, he's able to hit some pitches that probably other guys can't just because he has that aggressiveness and he's a super talent, and that's why a lot of times his numbers are what they are.

"You really don't want to take away anything that makes him comfortable. Just try to maybe eliminate and take away some anxiety sometimes so you can eliminate some of those bad at-bats and keep the consistency going, because if we can do that, maybe there's a few more walks that get thrown in there."


Orioles' Adam Jones goes deep in loss


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2014) Orioles outfielder Adam Jones went deep in the team's loss Saturday.

Orioles OF Adam Jones: I need to temper aggressive approach


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2014) Orioles slugger Adam Jones has conceded that he must temper his aggressiveness at the plate in the postseason.

Jones is just 5 of 42 in the playoffs for a meager .119 average.

"I just think that what I do in the regular season, I think I need to cut back a little bit more in the postseason," he told CSNBaltimore.com. "I think it intensifies when the postseason comes on, the strike zone is smaller. Every pitch is that more of importance. And you've got to lock in better. It's the same game; it's just the focus has to be stronger."

One problem is that the studs in the Kansas City bullpen don't allow home runs. Jones was 6 for 27 against Wade Davis and Kelvin Herrera combined in the regular season. Neither yielded a tater all year.


Adam Jones clubs two home runs Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Yoenis Cespedes tops Todd Frazier to win HR Derby


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2014) Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and Reds third baseman Todd Frazier survived tiebreaking swing-offs in the first round before eventually meeting in the finals of Monday's Home Run Derby, where Cespedes picked up his second straight title with a 9-1 knockout of Frazier.

Cespedes' three first-round homers earned him a swingoff with Athletics teammate Josh Donaldson, and after Donaldson managed just one home run three swings, the outfielder delivered homers in each of his first two swings to advance. He defeated Orioles outfielder Adam Jones 9-3 in the second round after Jones managed four first-round shots, then took down Jose Bautista, who had a competition-best 10 homers in the first round, by a score of 7-4 in the AL Final. Twins home-field competitor Brian Dozier hit just two home runs in the first round, failing to advance.

Frazier played the role of underdog throughout, hitting just two home runs as the first batter in the competition but managing to slide into a swing-off with Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau after Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig failed to hit a single home run before recording seven outs. Frazier went first in the swing-off and managed one home run in three swings but advanced after Morneau went 0 for 3. The Reds third baseman took down Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki 6-2 after Tulowitzki hit four first-round homers. Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton earned a bye after hitting six massive blasts in the first round, but he bowed out to Frazier 1-0 after a long break.

Cespedes joined Ken Griffey as the only players to win back-to-back Home Run Derby titles. He'll likely enter the 2015 competition as the favorite to make it three in a row.
