      Mariners' McClendon on James Jones: 'He's improved quite a bit'

      Mariners outfielder James Jones came into the spring with a new batting approach, lowering his hands at the plate, and it's paid off thus far this spring, MLB.com reports. "He's playing well," manager Lloyd McClendon said. "The bat speed is better. He's had some big hits this spring. He's improved quite a bit." Jones has picked things up after a slow Cactus League start, and he's 5 for 11 a double, a triple and five runs scored in his last four games. However, he's likely on the outside looking in for one of the team's bench spots. "There's going to be competition wherever you go," Jones said. "If there's no competition, you have to ask yourself if you're even trying. I like the competition. It makes it good for everybody. This is a really talented group -- good hitters and guys who can play all the positions. I'm definitely picking their brains."
