Jones was hit by a pitch on the right wrist Tuesday night in a game for Triple-A Sacramento, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Thankfully this is the opposite wrist that caused him to spend much of July on the disabled list. Nonetheless, the Giants expect Jones to return to the River Cats' lineup in a couple days. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Jones was activated from the 10-day disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Jones was initially expected to move to Triple-A for a rehab assignment, but the team has ultimately decided to officially send him to the minors for regular action. The third baseman is expected to suit up for Sacramento on Tuesday.
Jones (hand) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Jones has been out since getting hit on the hand by a pitch back on July 1, but it seems like he's nearing a return to the big-league club. No word has come forth as to how long he'll remain with the River Cats, although given the other injuries plaguing the team in the majors, it seems likely that he'll be back sooner rather than later.
Jones was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a wrist contusion Friday.
Jones hasn't played since July 1 with the injury, so this move will be backdated the maximum three days. As such, it's possible that Jones could return on July 14, the club's first day back in action after the All-Star break. It's entirely possible Jones would have remained active if not for the break; as is, he could miss just three additional games in the best-case scenario.
Jones (hand) remains out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Tigers, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Jones has been out for the last three games after getting struck by a pitch during Sunday's extra-inning contest with the Pirates. There has not been any new information regarding the third baseman's condition, but the team will opt to give Jae-Gyun Hwang another start at the hot corner for the series finale. Jones could potentially be available off the bench, although the Giants may choose to give him extra rest instead.
