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
(12/9/2013) The Marlins signed free agent first baseman/outfielder Garrett Jones to a two-year deal Monday, according to MLB.com. Jones is expected to replace Logan Morrison, who is rumored to be traded soon, as the Marlins' first baseman.

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. 


Garrett Jones succeeding despite platoon role


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2013) Pirates first baseman Garrett Jones is off to a strong start this year.

Jones has been platooned with Gaby Sanchez throughout the year, but Jones has the benefit of facing right-handed pitchers. Jones has always been a significantly better hitter against righties. Over his career, he's hit .281/.348/.501 in 1,511 at-bats. In virtually the same role, he hit .274/.317/.516, with 27 home runs last season.

Given his slightly reduced role, and the abundance of talent at first, Jones' Fantasy value is limited in mixed leagues. But he makes a solid injury fill-in if he's facing right-handers.


Garrett Jones stays productive


by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2013) Pirates outfielder Garrett Jones had another productive game at the plate Friday against the Mets. Jones collected three hits in the 7-3 win, including belting his fifth home run of the year.

Jones finished 3 for 5 in the victory and is hitting .333 with two home runs and five RBI over his last six games (21 at-bats).

(5/7/2013) Pirates first baseman Garrett Jones hit his fourth home run in Tuesday's series opener against the Mariners. He took reliever Carter Capps deep for a two-run shot in the eighth inning. Jones finished 1 for 4 in the 4-1 win.

The 31-year-old has gone just 2 for 14 (.143) through five games in May.

Garrett Jones goes yard vs. Cards


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2013) Pirates outfielder Garrett Jones enjoyed a productive night at the plate as he launched his second home run of the season Sunday afternoon against the Cardinals.

Jones took reliever Fernando Salas deep for a solo home run in the seventh inning. He also doubled in the third and singled in the fifth as he finished 3 for 4 with two runs scored and one RBI in a 9-0 victory.

He has reached base in each of his last six games and is hitting .389 (7 for 18) with four doubles, four runs scored, a home run and four RBI over that span. He is hitting .324/.382/.515 with two home runs and 13 RBI in 68 at-bats.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Pirates getting production from 1B


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com

"We've had some guys at the top of the order create opportunities for them; Gaby [.381 with two home runs in eight games batting fourth] has matched up well against some left-handed pitching," manager Clint Hurdle said. "They've been able to collectively, in a small sample size, have some pretty good productivity. They are comfortable with it."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2013) Pirates first baseman/outfielder Garrett Jones continued to pick up his average on Saturday against the Reds. He went 2 for 4 with an RBI in a 3-1 win.

The 31-year-old doubled home Andrew McCutchen in the fourth inning before singling in the eighth.
