News: Jones is not in the starting lineup Saturday against the Mariners, Joe Frisaro of reports. Impact: Jeff Baker will slot in at first base against left-hander Roenis Elias, as Jones sits for the first time this season. The 32-year-old Jones is riding a five-game hitting streak, with two homers over that span, but he is just 4-for-19 against lefties so far.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones homered in his second straight game Monday, accounting for half of the Marlins' runs. Impact: Jones is hitting just .231 on the early season, but has driven home seven runs hitting in the middle of the Marlins' lineup. The first baseman should see RBI opportunities as long as he's in the heart of the order.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones clubbed his first home run of the season Sunday against the Phillies in a losing effort. Impact: Jones, batting in the cleanup spot in opposition of a right-handed starter, connected for a solo shot against Kyle Kendrick in the fifth inning. He is batting just .224 for the season with a whopping 22 strikeouts in 46 at-bats. Without some improvement, Jones could lose playing time -- particularly against left-handed pitching -- once Rafael Furcal returns and Jeff Baker is no longer needed at second base.(RotoWire, )
