Jones is out of the lineup against the White Sox on Friday. Jones will head to the bench after going 1-for-3 with one home run and two RBI during Thursday's game against Minnesota. In his absence, Victor Reyes will man left field and bat eighth.
Jones went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run Thursday against the Twins. The outfielder tagged Lance Lynn in the seventh inning and cleared the left field fence with a runner on base to put the Tigers ahead for good. Jones looks to have the lead for time in left field and has remained relevant in deeper mixed leagues thanks to his five stolen bases. His .222/.267/.389 slash line doesn't suggest he'll offer much other than middling power and speed, though at 26 years old, he could reach another level over time with a more consistent role.
Jones is out of the starting lineup versus the Twins on Wednesday, Chris McCosky of the Detroit News reports. Jones will retreat to the bench after starting the past three games, going 1-for-4 with one RBI during Tuesday's outing. Victor Reyes will get the nod in left field in his absence.
Jones is not in the lineup against Cleveland on Friday, Chris McCosky of the Detroit News reports. Jones will get a night off to clear his head after going 0-for-5 with four strikeouts during Thursday's series finale in Boston. In his place, Niko Goodrum will get a start in the outfield and bat sixth in the order.
Jones is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Yankees. Jones will get a breather for the second game of Monday's twin bill after going 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Game 1. Rule 5 pick Victor Reyes will start in left field and hit ninth in his stead.
