Top Nolan Jones News

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Sent down Sunday

    Jones was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Sunday.

    Jones lost out on playing time for the Guardians recently, and he sat out five of the last seven matchups. The 24-year-old slashed .244/.309/.372 with two home runs, 13 RBI and 10 runs over 24 major-league games after being called up by Cleveland in early July. He should see more consistent at-bats in the minors.

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Losing playing time

    Jones is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers.

    The lefty-hitting Jones is riding pine for the third time in four games, with each absence coming when the Guardians have opposed a right-handed starting pitcher. With Jones getting on base at a .185 clip and striking out in 44.4 percent of his plate appearances in August, the playoff-hopeful Guardians seem inclined to rotate players at the designated-hitter spot rather than leaning on the slumping rookie as their primary option.

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Not starting Sunday

    Jones is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Jones is 5-for-23 with nine strikeouts through eight games in August and will head to the bench Sunday. Jose Ramirez will rest his legs as the designated hitter while Tyler Freeman starts at the hot corner during the series finale in Toronto.

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Three-hit effort Friday

    Jones went 3-for-5 in Friday's 8-0 win over the Blue Jays.

    While his playing time has become inconsistent, Jones has gone 5-for-11 with three strikeouts and no extra-base hits in his last three contests. The versatile 24-year-old owns a .280/.349/.427 slash line with two home runs, 13 RBI, 10 runs scored and five doubles through 25 contests. Steven Kwan and Oscar Gonzalez are holding down starting roles in the corner outfield spots, while Jones remains a part-time player who is seeing less than a strong-side platoon role at designated hitter.

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Sitting Thursday

    Jones is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale versus the Tigers.

    Jones will take a seat after he went 1-for-3 in Wednesday's win. Jose Ramirez will rest his legs as the designated hitter while Tyler Freeman enters the lineup at third base and bats seventh against Detroit.

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Sitting again Tuesday

    Jones is not in the starting lineup Tuesday versus the Tigers.

    With a left-hander (Tyler Alexander) on the mound for Detroit, the lefty-hitting Jones will remain out of the lineup for the second game in a row and fifth time in seven games overall. Owen Miller will take over at designated hitter and bat sixth in the series opener.

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Out against right-hander

    Jones is out of the lineup Sunday against the Astros and right-hander Cristian Javier.

    The lefty-hitting Jones will take a seat for the fourth time in six games, with two of those benchings coming against right-handed pitching. With the struggling Franmil Reyes now off the 40-man roster, Jones could still play more often than not against right-handers, but the return of Oscar Gonzalez from the injured list means that Jones won't have as clear of a path to the everyday role in right field as he previously enjoyed.

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Sits versus lefty

    Jones is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    The lefty-hitting Jones will hit the bench with southpaw Tommy Henry taking the mound for Arizona. The righty-hitting Oscar Gonzalez will man right field Wednesday, and he and Jones could end up forming a platoon at the position moving forward.

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Sitting against right-hander

    Jones is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    Even though the Guardians are facing a right-hander (Zac Gallen) on Tuesday, the lefty-hitting Jones will cede his spot in the lineup to the righty-hitting Oscar Gonzalez (intercostal), who will start in right field in his return from the injured list. Cleveland is expected to option designated hitter Franmil Reyes to Triple-A Columbus later Tuesday, so spots in the everyday lineup could still be available for both Jones and Gonzalez moving forward. Jones' move to the bench comes after he went 1-for-10 with five strikeouts over his last three starts.

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Resting against lefty

    Jones is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.

    With the Rays bringing a tough lefty (All-Star Shane McClanahan) to the hill Sunday, the lefty-hitting Jones will retreat to the bench for the second time in the series. The righty-hitting Alex Call will replace Jones as the Guardians' starting right fielder.

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Racks up three hits

    Jones went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, one RBI and three runs scored in Wednesday's 7-6 win over the Red Sox.

    This was Jones' first three-hit game in the majors, and also his first with multiple extra-base hits. The 24-year-old has gone 6-for-22 (.273) with three doubles and a home run in six games since the All-Star break. He's slashing .306/.404/.531 with two homers, five doubles, 13 RBI and 10 runs scored through 16 contests.

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Three-run homer in win

    Jones went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's victory over the Red Sox.

    Jones went deep for a three-run shot off Josh Winckowski in the top of the third inning, giving the Guardians a commanding 5-0 lead. The 24-year-old has now gone deep twice in 15 games since making his MLB debut July 8. Since he went 7-for-13 over his first four games, Jones has gone 5-for-32 with a homer, a double, four RBI and four runs over his last 11 contests.

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Breather Sunday

    Jones will sit Sunday against the White Sox.

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Retreats to bench for nightcap

    Jones is out of the lineup for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the White Sox.

    Following his call-up from Triple-A Columbus on Friday, Jones proceeded to start in right field in each of the Guardians' last five games, including the team's 4-1 win in Game 1 of the twin bill. Ernie Clement will enter the starting nine in his stead in Game 2, but Jones should be secure in an everyday role for the time being. Even after an 0-for-3 showing in the early game, Jones is still getting on base at a .526 clip through his first five big-league contests.

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Drives in four runs

    Jones went 2-for-3 with a double, four RBI and two runs scored in Monday's 8-4 win over the White Sox.

    Jones knocked a two-run single during Cleveland's five-run first inning. He then drilled a two-run double in the fifth. Jones has produced three multi-hit games through four career MLB appearances, giving him a terrific .538/.625/.923 slash line to go with eight RBI. The 24-year-old looks to have taken hold of an everyday role in right field for the Guardians.
