Yankees' Garrett Jones to get starts in RF for Carlos Beltran at Miami


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2015) Yankees right fielder Carlos Beltran will likely sit out some of the games in the upcoming series at Miami. 

Beltran's range and defense has been shaky this year, and manager Joe Girardi plans to have Garrett Jones play right field in the spacious right field in Miami. 

"We knew when we got him, he wasn't the center fielder he was back in the day. We knew that," Girardi said of Beltran, per MLB.com. "Our ballpark being a shorter distance between home and right, it doesn't play in as much. But you get to some of these other parks and it plays in a little bit."

Despite the upcoming move, Beltran will get the bulk of playing time in right going forward. 

"Carlos has been our right fielder," Girardi said. "My plan is for Carlos to be our right fielder."

“Right now, Garrett Jones is our extra outfielder, and we’ll just go from there,” Girardi said.

"It feels great, man," Jones said, per MLB.com. "Just seeing the team all smiles and just being able to contribute to the win, it was a battle today. It's just nice to help the team win and get in there and just deliver."

Jones' extra-inning home run off Joe Beimel was his second of the season. Both have come in his last eight appearances.

He is batting .474 (9 for 19) with two home runs, six RBI, four runs, two walks and five strikeouts in his last eight games.

"I'm not trying to do too much; just know what my purpose and spot on the team is going to be and try to do my best at it," Jones said. "Just make the most of it. It's been a transition, but right now, I feel comfortable and have come up with a routine, and just mentally feel in a lot better place in the spot I'm in."

Yankees' Brett Gardner, Alex Rodriguez out of lineup Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) 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
(4/11/2015) 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' Garrett Jones ready for position battle with Alex Rodriguez


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) 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
(12/22/2014) 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.
