Yankees' Alex Rodriguez out of the lineup Tuesday against Tampa


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) Yankees third baseman and designated hitter Alex Rodriguez is out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the Rays, with Garrett Jones taking over the DH role, the team announced.

Rodriguez had played the last four games in a row with just two games off in the first 20 to start the season. He is hitting .254 with five home runs in 63 at-bats this season. Jones is hitting .217 with a triple in 23 at-bats this season.


Garrett Jones gets three hits in Yankees' win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) 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
(4/19/2015) 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
(4/14/2015) 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 1B Garrett Jones only out one day due to illness


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) 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.

Yankees scratch Garrett Jones from Tuesday's lineup due to illness


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2015) Yankees first baseman Garrett Jones is dealing with an illness, which will keep him out of Tuesday's game, reports MLB.com.

Jones is either suffering from an illness or food poisoning, manager Joe Girardi said.


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.

Hitters to sit in Week 11


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/7/2014) Have your heart set on starting Derek Norris, Garrett Jones, Jed Lowrie, Josh Harrison, Jhonny Peralta or Oscar Taveras in Fantasy Week 11 (June 9-15)? You might want to think twice about that.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Garrett Jones racks up three hits, scores twice


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2014) Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones put together a solid performance Thursday, in an 11-6 win over the Rays.

Jones strung together three hits -- all singles -- in the win. He did not drive in any runs, but did score twice in the big win. Jones is now hitting .272/.335/.466 in 206 at-bats on the season. 


Garrett Jones' production not so far-fetched


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/27/2014) Sorry to break it to you, but Garrett Jones probably isn't this good.

I say "probably" to hedge my bet, and I hedge my bet because, well, he's been this good before.

Just two years ago, he hit .274 with 27 home runs and an .832 OPS for the Pirates. And he wasn't playing as regularly then as he is now.

Of course, he wasn't striking out as much then as he is now, perhaps becuase he wasn't playing as regularly against lefties, who he can't hit. Truth is he's striking out more this year than ever, which you could take to mean his batting average is due for a correction, as his .325 BABIP suggests, or his strikeout rate itself is due for a correction, which would normalize his BABIP without impacting his batting average so much.

Nerd alert, right? Here's the gist of it: Whatever luck Jones has had to this point isn't enough for you to expect a cliff dive going forward. He's shown he can power up at expansive Marlins Park and has earned the right to play every day. Given his track record as a power hitter, that's enough for you to start him in Rotisserie leagues as long as you don't expect him to help you in batting average.


Garrett Jones "relaxing' at plate as results follow


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2014) Marlins sizzling first baseman Garrett Jones used a two-homer performance Friday night to raise his slugging percentage to a season-high .512. He has added 166 points since May 12 to his OPS, which now rests at a very impressive .865.

Jones ranks second in the majors since May 12 with a .447 average and .895 slugging percentage. He is third with an on-base percentage of .511 during that stretch. What gives?

"It's just been a matter of relaxing and hitting the ball where it's pitched," he told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "I've been hitting some balls to left and some balls have fallen in. I'm just taking that nice, smooth swing, being on time to the ball, seeing it and hitting it, not really thinking too much or overanalyzing anything."

He is still struggling, however, against lefties with eight hits in 48 at-bats this season for a .167 average.


Hitters to sit in Week 9

Garrett Jones clubs two solo homers in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
