Jones (kneecap) will undergo season-ending surgery Wednesday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. On top of having surgery to repair his dislocated knee, Jones said he's also going to have a procedure done to relieve tendinitis in his same left knee. The 24-year-old believes he'll be hitting off a tee and fielding grounders by Christmas, which should have him ready to go by the start of spring training.
Bruce Bochy expects Jones (knee) to miss the remainder of the 2018 season, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. Jones dislocated his knee Sunday against Milwaukee, and the Giants aren't optimistic about his availability moving forward. Bochy stated "It's a shame. The kid's getting a chance to play up here and fix his swing, and that happens." Even if Jones is ruled out for the rest of the year, he should have no problem being ready for the beginning of spring training.
Jones was diagnosed with a left knee patella dislocation Sunday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. Jones injured the knee on a swing in the fifth inning of Sunday's contest with the Brewers. It's unclear how long he'll be out of commission due to this, but the early returns certainly aren't great. Consider him day-to-day until further notice.
Jones departed during his fifth-inning at-bat Sunday against the Brewers with an apparent left knee injury, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. Jones tumbled to the ground in pain after his knee appeared to buckle when he swung the bat. He checked out of the contest immediately, with Brandon Belt coming on to draw a pinch-hit walk. The Giants should offer clarity regarding the nature and extent of Jones' setback after the contest.
Jones hit a pinch-hit two-run homer against the Brewers on Saturday. Jones took Joakim Soria deep in the eighth inning for his second major-league home run. He's appeared only as a pinch hitter since he was recalled Tuesday after slashing a modest .274/.328/.417 with 11 home runs in 116 games at Triple-A Sacramento.
