Orioles' Adam Jones: Not in Friday's lineup

Jones is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Yankees.

The reason for Jones' absence is uncertain, as he has started every game since his last day off Aug. 16. He did exit Thursday's game early -- seemingly because the game was a blowout at the time -- so he could be dealing with a health issue. It's equally as possible he is being held out because he is just 1-for-10 (.100) lifetime against Friday's starter for the Yankees, Luis Severino. One way or another, Austin Hays will get the start in center field for the Orioles on Friday night.
