  • Orioles' Jahmai Jones: Rejoins major-league club

  • Orioles' Jahmai Jones: Back to minors

    Jones was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Jones has been absent from the starting lineup for three straight games, though he did score the game-winning run as a pinch-runner in Thursday's contest. His demotion will should allow both Ramon Urias and Kelvin Gutierrez to see more regular playing time moving forward.

  • Orioles' Jahmai Jones: Records first big-league steal

    Jones went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Friday's 6-3 win over Toronto.

    It was the first big-league steal of Jones' career. He's shown some speed in the minors, although he didn't top 10 steals in 2019 after reaching 20 in each year between 2015 and 2018. Jones is slashing .176/.222/.235 with three RBI, four runs scored and three doubles in 54 plate appearances since he was called up by Baltimore. He has emerged as a near-everyday presence at second base.

  • Orioles' Jahmai Jones: Handling everyday role

    Jones will start at second base and bat seventh Monday against the Royals.

    Since both he and Kelvin Gutierrez were called up from Triple-A Norfolk on Aug. 23, Jones appears to have won out in the battle for an everyday spot in the Baltimore lineup. Though both will crack the lineup in Monday's series opener while Ramon Urias (upper leg) hits the bench, Jones had started nine times in Baltimore's last 11 games, while Gutierrez picked up only seven starts. Jones is slashing .176/.222/.265 since his promotion.

  • Orioles' Jahmai Jones: Not starting Saturday

    Jones isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Jones had started each of the last four games, and he went 2-for-17 with a double, two runs and seven strikeouts. Jorge Mateo (back/hip) will return to the lineup at the keystone, while Ramon Urias will start at shortstop.

  • Orioles' Jahmai Jones: Moves up to big leagues

    The Orioles recalled Jones from Triple-A Norfolk on Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Baltimore will shake things up in the infield after losing its 18th straight game Sunday, bringing in Jones and Kelvin Gutierrez from Norfolk while sending Richie Martin to Triple-A and designating Maikel Franco for assignment. Franco's removal from the 40-man roster should open up reps at third base for Ramon Urias and Gutierrez, while Jones will be in the mix for playing time at the keystone if the Orioles elect to shift the hot-hitting Jorge Mateo over to shortstop. Over 289 plate appearances with Norfolk on the season, Jones has slashed .238/.329/.417 with 10 home runs and nine stolen bases.

  • Orioles' Jahmai Jones: Returns from injured list

    Jones (oblique) was activated off the minor-league injured list Tuesday.

    Jones hit the injured list in mid-May with a strained left oblique, an injury which was originally expected to keep him out for days rather than weeks. He played just six games for Triple-A Norfolk prior to suffering the injury but could make his case for a big-league call-up if he hits well upon his return, as the Orioles have turned to players like Stevie Wilkerson and Pat Valaika at second base in recent weeks.

  • Orioles' Jahmai Jones: Out with oblique strain

    Jones hit the minor-league injured list Friday with a strained left oblique, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    The Orioles don't seem particularly concerned about the issue, with reports suggesting his absence should last days, not weeks. He hit .227/.333/.591 in 23 games for Triple-A Norfolk prior to suffering the injury.

  • Orioles' Jahmai Jones: Sent to minors

    Jones was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

    Jones was traded from the Angels to the Orioles at the beginning of February and appeared in 17 spring games, but he'll begin the season in the minors. The 23-year-old hit .143 with one home run and four RBI this spring and has appeared in just three major-league games during his career.

  • Orioles' Jahmai Jones: Bound for Baltimore

    Jones was traded from the Angels to the Orioles on Monday in exchange for Alex Cobb, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Jones made his big-league debut at the end of last season, grabbing three hits in seven trips to the plate. The 23-year-old could probably use some more time in the minors, however, as he's yet to appear in a Triple-A game and hit a modest .234/.308/.324 over a full season at Double-A Mobile in 2019. When he does eventually arrive in the majors for good, he projects as much more of a role player than a star, as he's a good athlete but doesn't have any above-average tools other than his speed.

  • Angels' Jahmai Jones: Recalled for first big-league start

    Jones was recalled from the alternate training site Saturday and is starting at second base against the Dodgers, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    The 23-year-old will bat eighth in the first start of his career as he takes the roster spot of Luis Rengifo (hamstring), who was placed on the injured list. Jones had a brief stint on the active roster earlier this year but made only one appearance as a pinch runner. Jones spent the 2019 campaign at Double-A and posted a .234/.308/.324 slash line with five homers and nine stolen bases in 130 games.
