Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Shifts to 45-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hand) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Jones was hit in the hand by a pitch at the start of September and wound up requiring surgery. That will wind up being his final pitch of the season, though he should have plenty of time to be ready for 2021.

Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Surgery successful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones had successful surgery on his broken left hand and "probably" won't return this season, according to manager Ron Gardenhire, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

He sustained the fractured hand when he was hit by a pitch Sept. 1, and with less than three weeks left in the season, we have probably seen the last of Jones in 2020. Daz Cameron, the team's top center field prospect, was recalled to make his big-league debut Wednesday.

Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hand) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

Jones suffered a fractured left hand after being hit by a pitch Tuesday and should miss the remainder of the season as a result. His placement on the injured list clears space on the active roster for Derek Hill, who was recalled in a corresponding move. It's unclear whether Jones will require surgery.

Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Out with fractured hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones sustained a fractured left hand on a hit by pitch during Tuesday's game at Milwaukee.

It's a devastating development for Jones and the Tigers, as he was enjoying the most productive season of his career with an .848 OPS and five homers through 30 games. The 28-year-old's 2019 campaign ended in a similar fashion, as he suffered a fractured left wrist in early August and missed the rest of the season. It's too early to tell if Jones will require surgery to address the fracture, but he's likely out for the final month of the season regardless.

Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Leaves after HBP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was removed from Tuesday's game against the Brewers after being hit by a pitch on the hand/wrist area, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

The 28-year-old missed the final eight weeks of 2019 after suffering a fractured left wrist from a hit by pitch, so one can only hope Tuesday's incident yields a different result. Jones is in the midst of the best season of his career with a .268/.333/.515 slash line, five homers and 14 RBI through 30 games.

Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Not in Game 2 lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones isn't in the lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins.

Jones will take a seat for the second game of Saturday's twin bill after going 2-for-4 with one run in Game 1. Victor Reyes will shift to center field with Cameron Maybin starting in right.

August 27, 2020 03:16 PM
Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hamstring) is starting in center field and hitting sixth Thursday against the Twins.

Jones missed Wednesday's game with right calf tightness but is good to go for Thursday's series opener against Minnesota. He's hitting .273/.330/.534 with five homers and a 6:31 BB:K through 27 games this season.

August 26, 2020 03:04 PM
Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Sitting with calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (calf) is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Cubs.

He was pulled from Tuesday's game with right calf tightness and will need at least a day to get right. Victor Reyes is starting in center field and leading off.

Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Picks up calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was removed from Tuesday's game against the Cubs with right calf tightness.

The 28-year-old went 1-for-3 with a run scored and a sacrifice fly before exiting at the start of the eighth inning. Jones should be considered day-to-day until the severity of the injury is known.

August 15, 2020 01:48 PM
Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Not in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones isn't in the lineup Saturday against Cleveland.

Jones smacked a double in Friday's contest, but he'll take a seat for the second game of the series against Cleveland with right-hander Shane Bieber on the mound. Victor Reyes will take over in center field, batting ninth.

Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Gets day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Jones has been battling an abdominal issue off and on for a little over a week, so manager Ron Gardenhire is likely just giving the center fielder some routine maintenance in the day game after a night game. Harold Castro will replace Jones in the lineup and bat seventh.

Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Hits inside-the-park homer Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones went 1-for-3 with a two-run, inside-the-park home run in Monday's 5-1 win over the White Sox.

Jones hit a low line drive with two outs in the seventh inning, and when it got past a diving Adam Engel in center, it was off to the races. The Detroit center fielder has gotten off to a great start, as he now has five home runs in just 13 games. His career high is 11 home runs, which is what he hit in each of the last two years. At this rate, Jones could beat that mark with only the 60-game schedule to work with.

Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Starting in series opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (abdomen) is in the lineup Monday against the White Sox.

Jones was removed in the third inning of Sunday's contest with an abdominal issue that he's apparently dealt with for a week. However, manager Ron Gardenhire said that Jones came in Monday feeling fine, and he felt comfortable placing him in the lineup for the series opener against the White Sox. The 28-year-old carries a 1.139 OPS with four home runs and 12 RBI over 12 games this season.

Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Slated for evaluation Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (abdomen) will be examined Monday to better determine the nature of his injury, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Jones exited in the third inning of Sunday's game against the Pirates with left abdominal tightness. He told manager Ron Gardenhire that he's been dealing with the issue for about a week, and Monday's examination could provide a better idea of how much time he could miss. Jones had gone 2-for-9 with a home run, three RBI and three runs over the two games prior to Sunday's contest.

Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Exits early Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was removed in the bottom of the third inning of Sunday's game against the Pirates with left abdominal tightness.

Jones may have sustained the injury during his plate appearance in the top half of the frame, when he struck out on five pitches. Harold Castro came on in center field as a replacement for Jones, who is considered day-to-day heading into Monday's series opener versus the White Sox. Jones is batting .333 with four home runs, 10 RBI and nine runs over 12 games this season.

Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Sitting Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Reds.

Jones started Game 1 and went 0-for-3 during the seven-inning contest. Victor Reyes will start in center field and bat leadoff for the second game.

Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Continues hot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones went 3-for-3 with two doubles, a solo home run and two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Royals.

Batting from the No. 9 spot, Jones has gotten off to a great start to the season, as he now has three home runs, six RBI, six runs scored and a 1.450 OPS through six games. The 28-year-old has shown flashes before at the MLB level but has yet to put it all together. Perhaps the shorter season will benefit Jones and keep him from getting into too many prolonged slumps.

July 27, 2020 11:04 PM
Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Homers again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Monday's loss to the Royals.

Jones now has two home runs and a 1.143 OPS through four games. The 28-year-old center fielder has been batting ninth so far for the Tigers, though that could change if he keeps up this hot streak. Jones batted ninth 43 times last season but also made 32 starts as the team's leadoff hitter.

Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Smacks game-winning homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in the Tigers' 6-4 win over the Reds on Saturday.

He played the hero, connecting for the go-ahead, two-run homer off Raisel Iglesias in the ninth inning. Per Jason Beck of MLB.com, manager Ron Gardenhire called for the sacrifice bunt twice in that at-bat, with Jones fouling off both attempts. With two strikes, Jones swung away and decided the contest. Jones has hit ninth in the Tigers' first two games.

Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Returns to game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (oblique) will start in center field and bat leadoff in Monday's intrasquad game.

Jones has been managing some left oblique tightness for the last few days, but his re-entry into the lineup for the Tigers' 10th and final intrasquad game suggests he'll be ready to go for the team's season opener Friday in Cincinnati. Though Jones is atop the lineup Monday, he could find himself in the bottom third of the order more often than not during the regular season.
