Jones announced that he is no longer a member of the Giants organization and will be joining the Red Sox system Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Jones was drafted by San Francisco in the second round of the 2013 draft and has played in 58 total major-league games across two seasons, hitting .184/.250/316 with four home runs, 14 runs scored and eight RBI. Following a long recovery process after surgery to repair a dislocated knee and a procedure to relieve tendinitis in his same left knee in 2018, Jones only played 12 minor-league games across various levels in the Giants organization last season. The 25-year-old recently worked out for teams and showed that he's healthy heading into spring.
Jones cleared waivers and was outrighted to Double-A Richmond on Sunday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Jones was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.

Jones (kneecap) will undergo season-ending surgery Wednesday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
On top of having surgery to repair his dislocated knee, Jones said he's also going to have a procedure done to relieve tendinitis in his same left knee.

Jones (kneecap) will undergo season-ending surgery within the next few days, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
After dislocating his knee Sunday in Milwaukee on a swing, Jones will require left knee surgery to repair the issue. The exact timetable for his return hasn't been given, although it seems likely that he'll be good to go for the start of spring training.
Bruce Bochy expects Jones (knee) to miss the remainder of the 2018 season, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Jones dislocated his knee Sunday against Milwaukee, and the Giants aren't optimistic about his availability moving forward. Bochy stated "It's a shame. The kid's getting a chance to play up here and fix his swing, and that happens." Even if Jones is ruled out for the rest of the year, he should have no problem being ready for the beginning of spring training.
Jones was diagnosed with a left knee patella dislocation Sunday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Jones injured the knee on a swing in the fifth inning of Sunday's contest with the Brewers. It's unclear how long he'll be out of commission due to this, but the early returns certainly aren't great. Consider him day-to-day until further notice.
Jones departed during his fifth-inning at-bat Sunday against the Brewers with an apparent left knee injury, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Jones tumbled to the ground in pain after his knee appeared to buckle when he swung the bat. He checked out of the contest immediately, with Brandon Belt coming on to draw a pinch-hit walk. The Giants should offer clarity regarding the nature and extent of Jones' setback after the contest.
Jones hit a pinch-hit two-run homer against the Brewers on Saturday.
Jones took Joakim Soria deep in the eighth inning for his second major-league home run. He's appeared only as a pinch hitter since he was recalled Tuesday after slashing a modest .274/.328/.417 with 11 home runs in 116 games at Triple-A Sacramento.
Jones will be recalled by the Giants on Tuesday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Jones has spent most of the season with Triple-A Sacramento, slashing .274/.328/.417 with 11 homers across 116 games. He's appeared in just one game for the Giants this season after struggling to a .173/.244/.273 line across 53 games with the big club in 2017. Jones should get an opportunity to improve upon his major-league body of work as the Giants will likely look to rest Brandon Belt (knee) down the stretch with the team fading out of the playoff picture.
Jones was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday.
Jones was up for just one day, with Brandon Belt returning quickly from the paternity list. Jones hit a homer in his one start, but he'll likely have to await an injury before getting another opportunity.
Jones started at third base and went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-1 win over the Athletics.
Jones was called up to help replace Brandon Belt, who was placed on paternity leave Friday. The latter could return as soon as Saturday, but if he doesn't, Jones could be in line for another start against the right-handed Trevor Cahill. The 24-year-old slashed .299/.348/.447 in 81 games with Triple-A Sacramento prior to his callup, but Chase d'Arnaud's success in a backup infield role should push Jones back to minors when Belt rejoins the club.
Jones will be recalled from Triple-A Sacramento ahead of Friday's matchup against the Athletics, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Jones was hitting .299 with nine homers and 48 RBI through 81 games with the River Cats prior to his promotion.
Jones (hamstring) was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Jones is finally over the hamstring injury that kept him sidelined throughout Cactus League action, allowing the Giants to send him to the minors. This isn't too surprising, as Jones was a long shot to break camp with the Giants following the acquisition of Evan Longoria. The 23-year-old hit just .173/.244/.273 in 53 games in his first taste of the majors last year, so he could stand to benefit from a little more seasoning in the minors.
Jones will be sidelined for 10 days with a hamstring injury, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic Bay Area reports.
Jones tweaked his hamstring earlier in camp, and the issue is apparently still bothersome enough to keep him sidelined for a little while longer. He was a long shot to break camp with the Giants following the acquisition of Evan Longoria, and the longer he remains sidelined, the more likely he'll end up on the farm to open the season.

Jones -- who is hitting just .122 during September -- will be given the day off against left-hander Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers. Pablo Sandoval takes over at third base, batting seventh.
