Astros' Taylor Jones: Delivers hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Astros' Taylor Jones: Back in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was recalled from the Astros' alternate training site Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Yordan Alvarez was placed on the injured list for an undisclosed reason as a corresponding move, so Jones may only be up for a couple days. He could see time at first base and designated hitter while primarily serving as a right-handed bat off the bench.

Astros' Taylor Jones: Activated, sent down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (undisclosed) was activated from the injured list and optioned to the Astros' alternate training site Thursday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Astros didn't initially provide a reason for Jones' placement on the injured list, but manager Dusty Baker revealed that the 27-year-old was dealing with side effects from the COVID-19 vaccine. Now that most of the team's players have returned from the COVID-19 injured list, Jones will return to the Astros' alternate training site.

Astros' Taylor Jones: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was placed on the injured list Tuesday for unspecified reasons, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.

The 27-year-old last appeared in a game Saturday against the Mariners, and the team hasn't identified what prompted the move to the injured list. As a result, it's unclear how long Jones is expected to be sidelined.

Astros' Taylor Jones: Delivers lone run in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones went 1-for-4 with an RBI in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Mariners.

Not much offense was happening at T-Mobile Park on Saturday, but Houston was able scratch out a run in the fourth inning. Singles by Michael Brantley and Aledmys Diaz set the stage for Jones, who delivered a clutch two-out RBI single. For Jones, who was called up along with others after Houston placed several regulars on the COVID-19 protocols list, it was a second straight start as designated hitter. He's reached base safely in each game, going 2-for-6 with a walk, an RBI and two runs scored. Manager Dusty Baker feels the five players on the injured list, which includes designated hitter Yordan Alvarez, likely won't return until Thursday at the earliest and potentially later, per Brian McTaggart of MLB.com. That means Jones could pick up regular at-bats in the short term.

Astros' Taylor Jones: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Astros' Taylor Jones: Adding positional versatility
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was taking defensive reps at third base and left field on back fields Thursday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Jones has spent most of his professional career at first base, though he appeared in the outfield for 70 games at Triple-A Round Rock in 2019. He also has previous experience at third base, though it was much less significant. Jones made his major-league debut in 2020, though he's not likely to make the Opening Day roster.
