Jones, 26, has a career .460 OPS in 90 plate appearances across parts of three major-league seasons. His versatility could make him appealing to some clubs once he hits waivers.... See More ...

Before he opted out of his minor-league deal with the Dodgers over the weekend, the 25-year-old infielder has spent the entirety of the 2023 season at Triple-A Oklahoma City and put together a .292/.427/.542 slash line over 263 plate appearances. Jones will now get the opportunity to return to the big leagues with the Brewers, who are in need of added infield depth in the short term after Brian Anderson was placed on the paternity list Monday.

Dodgers' Jahmai Jones: Back in action for spring training
Jones (elbow) has appeared in five of the Dodgers' Cactus League games to date, going 0-for-8 with a walk and a run scored.
Jones has seen reps at second base in all five of his appearances, so he looks to have made a full recovery from the Tommy John surgery he underwent in late May of last season. The 25-year-old was once a prospect of some repute when he was coming up through the Angels' system, but injuries and poor performance during his time in the majors in 2021 and at the Triple-A level prompted the Orioles to release him last June. Jones joined the Dodgers on a minor-league pact last August and will likely open the upcoming campaign at Triple-A Oklahoma City.... See More ... See Less

By signing with the Dodgers, Jones will have the ability to conduct his rehab process in a team structure, and depending on how quickly he's able to start throwing again, he could be back to full health for spring training. Jones, 25, appeared in 29 games in the majors between stops with the Angels and Orioles in 2020 and 2021 and slashed .212/.339/.343 in 118 plate appearances at Triple-A Norfolk this season before being cut loose by Baltimore....
