  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Working through ankle, back issues

    Jones (ankle) has progressed to throwing from 150 feet, hitting in the batting cage and shagging flyballs in the outfield at extended spring training in Arizona, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Jones' start to the 2022 season has been delayed by his continued rehab from left ankle surgery as well as a lower-back issue, but he's said to be free of symptoms of both injuries. Since he's not yet taking part in live batting practice or full fielding drills, he's likely still multiple weeks away from making his 2022 debut for Triple-A Columbus. Once healthy, Jones is expected to see reps at third base and right field at Columbus, where he slashed .238/.356/.431 over 407 plate appearances a season ago.

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Begins year on IL

    Triple-A Columbus placed Jones (ankle) on its 7-day injured list April 5.

    Jones was cleared to resume baseball activities in spring training, but he's not yet ready to test his surgically-repaired left ankle in games. Before getting surgery last September, Jones logged 407 plate appearances for Columbus and produced a .238/.356/.431 slash line across 99 games.

  • Guardians' Nolan Jones: Beginning baseball activities

    Jones (ankle) is set to begin baseball activities but has not been cleared to play, Mandy Bell of reports.

    Jones underwent ankle surgery in September after suffering a high-ankle sprain. He's a little bit behind the expected pace, but it's not clear if he'll miss Triple-A Columbus' Opening Day. He'll need to take a step up in 2022 after finishing last year with a .238/.356/.431 slash line, 13 home runs, 10 stolen bases, 48 RBI and 60 runs scored in 407 plate appearances. If he receives his call-up this season, he'd likely get a look in the outfield or at first base -- Jose Ramirez is the Guardians' everyday third baseman, which somewhat blocks Jones at his natural position.

  • Indians' Nolan Jones: Set for surgery

    Jones is expected to undergo surgery to stabilize his high ankle sprain, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    Jones suffered the injury in late August. He'll finish the year with a .238/.356/.431 slash line in 99 games for Triple-A Columbus. He homered 13 times and stole 10 bases but also struck out 30.0 percent of the time. He's expected to be ready to go by spring training.

  • Indians' Nolan Jones: Placed on injured list

    Jones was placed on the 7-day minor-league injured list with a left ankle sprain Thursday.

    Jones exited Sunday's game at Triple-A Columbus due to his ankle injury and hasn't made any appearances since then. The 23-year-old had reached base safely in each of his last 11 games and slashed .372/.462/.581 with two home runs, three doubles, 16 runs, seven RBI and a stolen base during that time. It's not yet clear whether he'll miss more than the minimum of seven days.

  • Indians' Nolan Jones: Tweaks ankle Sunday

    Jones was removed from Triple-A Columbus' game Sunday against Memphis with a left ankle sprain.

    The third baseman/outfielder went 1-for-4 with a walk before departing with the injury. Over 99 games at Columbus this season, Jones is hitting .238 with 13 home runs and 10 steals while striking out in 30 percent of his plate appearances.

  • Indians' Nolan Jones: Shielded from Rule 5 draft

    Jones was added to Cleveland's 40-man roster Friday.

    Jones is one of Cleveland's top prospects, so it's not surprising to see him protected from the Rule 5 draft. The 22-year-old trained at the alternate training site in 2020, but he's yet to advance past the Double-A level. He hit .253 with eight home runs and 22 RBI with Double-A Akron in 2019.

  • Indians' Nolan Jones: To train at alternate site

    Jones will be a part of the Indians' 60-man player pool this season.

    Jones is one of the Indians' best prospects and could be their everyday third baseman in the not-so-distant future. However, he had nine strikeouts in 19 plate appearances this spring and hit .200 with 31 strikeouts in 68 plate appearances in the Arizona Fall League, so he is not quite ready to hold his own against big-league pitching.
