Garrett Jones slugs 10th home run Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones went 2 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 7-4 loss to the Phillies Tuesday.

Jones' eighth-inning home run proved to be too little, too late for the Marlins offense. He was 0 for 14 in his last six games since hitting his last home run before getting back on the board Tuesday. Jones has hit .257/.324/.441 with 10 home runs and 34 RBI in 261 at-bats.


Garrett Jones knocks ninth home run Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones went 1 for 4 with a three-run home run in his team's 6-5 victory over the Cubs.

Jones came to the plate in the bottom of the seventh with his team down 4-3 and deposited a pitch over the right-field wall to give the Marlins the lead for good. It was his first home run since hitting a pair of homers on May 23. Jones has hit .267/.331/.453 with nine home runs and 32 RBI in 243 at-bats.


Garrett Jones gets a rest Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2014) Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones was not in the team's starting lineup Friday against the Pirates.

Jones will sit against left-hander Jeff Locke. Over 225 at-bats, Jones is hitting .276/.337/.462, with eight home runs. Jones will be replaced at first by Jeff Baker. 


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


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/24/2014) Thinking about starting Derek Norris, Garrett Jones, Emilio Bonifacio, Kyle Seager, Erick Aybar or Seth Smith in Fantasy Week 9 (May 26-June 1)? You may want to think again.

Find out why in my latest Start and Sit Hitters column.


Garrett Jones clubs two solo homers in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2014) Marlins outfielder Garrett Jones has been hot recently, but he had gone a week since his last home run entering Friday's game against the Brewers.

Jones remedied that situation in a big way, putting together his first multi-homer game of the season in a 9-5 loss. He was 2 for 3 with two RBI and two runs scored, and he added a walk to his line as well.

Jones started off slow, but is now hitting .286/.353/.518 in 168 at-bats on the season. 


Garrett Jones goes for four hits in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones raised his batting average nearly 20 points with a four-hit game Tuesday against the Phillies, a 6-5 loss.

Jones went 4 for 5 while his teammates went just 2 for 28 otherwise in the game, but he still nearly carried them to a win. He drove in two runs, including a key one in the ninth inning, but it was not enough as they fell short.

Jones got off to a slow start, but has his batting average up to .273. He is hitting .273/.339/.472 in 161 at-bats, with six home runs and 21 RBI in 43 games. 


Garrett Jones collects three hits Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones picked up three hits Friday against the Giants.

After striking out in his first at-bat, Jones doubled his second time up. For his final two at-bats, the Giants brought in two different left-handed relievers in order to get Jones out. He managed to collect two singles against them. Jones finished 3 for 5, with one run scored and one RBI.


Garrett Jones slugs sixth home run in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones launched his sixth home run of the season during Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Giants in San Francisco.

Jones took starter Matt Cain deep for a two-run shot in the second inning. He finished 1 for 3 with a walk, a run scored and two RBI. He is hitting .250 with six homers and 17 RBI in 144 at-bats.

Streaky Garrett Jones going in the wrong direction


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2014) A hot spell that elevated the batting average of Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones to .282 has been followed by a cold spell that has dropped it to .252.

Jones has just one hit in his last 17 at-bats, but his overall production has been decent. He owns a .429 slugging percentage. He has five home runs and 15 RBI, but his 36 strikeouts in 119 at-bats is a concern.

He is also just 4 for 28 against left-handers, which could eventually force a strict platoon.


Garrett Jones showing signs of life


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) Marlins outfielder Garrett Jones continues to turn his season around, as he racked up multiple hits in a 9-3 win over the Braves Wednesday.

Jones extended his modest hitting streak to three games in the win, while driving in two runs. He finished the game 2 for 3 with one run scored as well, raising his batting average to .250.

Jones is hitting .250/.302/.396 on the season, but was hitting as low as .222 as recently as a week ago. He has four home runs and 13 RBI in 96 at-bats.  


Garrett Jones slams fourth homer in Friday night defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2014) First baseman Garrett Jones continued to give the Marlins steady production Friday night with a single and solo home run in the fourth inning of a loss to the host Mets.

Jones, who has hit safely in eight of his last 10 games, raised his slugging percentage to .400 for the first time this season.


Jeff Baker in, Garrett Jones out of Saturday lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) The presence of left-hander Reonis Elias on the mound for the Mariners has kept Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones off the lineup card Saturday.

Jones has received a decent shot to prove he can hit southpaws this season. He is 4 for 19 against them, but will sit against Elias in favor of Jeff Baker, who owns a .103 batting average this season.


Garrett Jones drives in two in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones snapped out of a funk Wednesday against the Nationals, with his first three-hit game of the season.  

Jones went 3 for 4 in the 10-7 loss, with a double and a pair of singles. He drove in two runs and could have had three, but Giancarlo Stanton was thrown out trying to score on Jones' eighth-inning double.

Jones is now hitting .273/.359/.333 through nine games, though he has yet to homer. 


Marlins officially sign Garrett Jones


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

The Miami Herald reported over the weekend that Jones' deal would be worth $7.75 million.


Pirates non-tender Garrett Jones


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2013) The Pirates have non-tendered first baseman Garrett Jones .

Jones has recently designated for assignment, so the move shouldn't come as a big surprise. Though he's coming off a down year, in which he hit .233, Jones has been an above-average hitter against right-handed pitching throughout his career. He owns a .271/.337/.489 line against righties.


Pirates drop Garrett Jones from 40-man roster


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(11/25/2013) The Pirates designated first baseman/outfielder Garrett Jones for assignment Monday.

Jones had been the Pirates' primary first baseman prior to the arrival of Justin Morneau from the Twins on Aug. 31. He hit .233 with 15 home runs and 51 RBI in 403 at-bats.


Garrett Jones ends slump in big way


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2013) Pirates first baseman Garrett Jones homered among his three hits Friday night during a 5-0 victory over the Cardinals.

Jones went deep off Shelby Miller in the fourth inning of the game for a solo shot, his 13th of the season. He finished the game 3 for 4 with four RBI.

Jones drove in two runs in the first inning with a double to right field. He added an RBI single for good measure in the fifth to round out the scoring for the Pirates.

The 32-year-old had not recorded a hit in his previous four appearances and was just 1 for 22 over his previous nine contests.

Garrett Jones has strong slugging percentage in July


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2013) Pirates first baseman/outfielder Garrett Jones homered in the second inning Saturday against the Reds, extending his hitting streak to a modest four games. Jones is batting .270 (10 for 37) with one triple, two doubles, two home runs, three walks, four RBI and four runs in 12 July games.

He is slugging .541 with a .866 OPS in July as well.


Garrett Jones could be cheap source of power


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2013) If you're looking for a cheap source of power in deeper formats, then Pirates first baseman/outfielder Garrett Jones could be a sleeper option for the second half. Jones has managed at least 15 doubles in the second half for four straight seasons and has managed at least 10 home runs three times in that span.

Here's a glance at what Jones has accomplished in the second half the last four seasons:

  • 2009: .290/.537/.909, 16 HRs, 19 2Bs, 37 RBI
  • 2010: .215/.392/.659, 10 HRs, 15 2Bs, 34 RBI
  • 2011: .239/.431/.736, 7 HRs, 15 2Bs, 24 RBI
  • 2012: .279/.523/.860, 15 HRs, 15 2Bs, 49 RBI

Despite being in a platoon role (sits against left-handed starters), Jones started 71 of 93 games in the first half. Jones is going to need one heck of a second-half push to belt 20-plus homers for the fourth time in five seasons, but it might not be a bad idea for NL-only and Rotisserie owners in deeper formats to keep tabs on Jones' progress as the second half kicks off.


Garrett Jones shows off wheels


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2013) Pirates first baseman Garrett Jones showed some rare speed Friday against the Cubs, as he tripled for the first time all season in a 6-2 win.

Jones went 2 for 4 before being pulled for a defensive replacement late, and one of his hits was a triple, his first since Aug. 12 of last season. Jones added a stolen base, just his second of the season. Jones is hitting .264 on the season.


Garrett Jones doubles twice


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2013) Garrett Jones saw some time as the right fielder and first baseman for the Pirates Monday in Detroit. He also ripped two doubles in the loss. 

Jones went 2 for 4 with a run scored and is batting .279. He's been struggling with the bat lately with just six hits in his last 10 games compared to eight strikeouts. Still, he has five homers, 12 doubles and 26 RBI over 140 at-bats.
