James Jones eager to prove worth to Mariners after call-up

On Monday, the Seattle Mariners promoted speedy outfielder James Jones from Triple-A Tacoma to replace reliever Danny Farquhar on the roster (as Farquhar was optioned back down). For Jones, who was up for a sizable portion of the 2014 season, this marks the first time he's been called up to the Mariners in 2015. As Shannon Drayer of ESPN Seattle points out, Jones' tenure in Seattle...

Seattle Mariners: At the end of the Weeks,Mariners fans Jonesing for a Jimmy

The Rickie Weeks experiment is over; the converted Left Fielder (formerly 2nd baseman) was unable to adapt to the new position defensively or maintain a sufficient offensive numbers to contribute.  Designated for assignment to Triple A on Saturday, it remains to be seen what the long-term plans are for Weeks. Rickie batted .167, with 7 runs scored, 2 HR, 7 RBI, while striking...

Seattle Mariners: James Jones returns

The Seattle Mariners recalled James Jones from AAA Tacoma on Monday. No, not the James Jones that’s preparing for Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night. No, not James Jones the football player either. James Jones, the 26 year-old outfielder from Brooklyn, that burst on to the scene for the Mariners last season before his production began leveling off. The centerfielder had...

Jones-ing For Steals

It's not even June and the Mariners are on their second leadoff hitter in James Jones. The 25-year-old center fielder has hit at the top of the Mariners lineup and looks to remain there for the foreseeable future. Yes, I copied and pasted that last sentence from the Abraham Almonte post. Jones has looked good though, hitting .306 with a .377 OBP in the twenty games since his call...

One-Two Punch!  Jones and Saunders Hitting It Hard

Top of the Lineup Life At Last It wasn’t but two weeks ago I was writing about how the Seattle Mariners bats were struggling at the top of the order. What a difference a couple of weeks can make. With the continual strikeouts of Abraham Almonte now a seemingly distant memory, you have James Jones and Michael Saunders suddenly lighting up the box score at the top of the order. Michael...

James Jones the next Adam Jones?

Déjà Jones We are nearly half way into the month of May, and the Seattle Mariners are 20-18. That’s right, a winning record at this point in the season for the first time since 2003. There are several reasons the Mariners have been successful as of late – outstanding pitching from unlikely sources (Chris Young and Roenis Elias) and timely hitting have been major contributors...

Could James Jones Be The Answer At Center Field For The Seattle Mariners?

Lloyd McClendon’s patience with the lack of offense from center fielder Abraham Almonte came to an end a little over a week ago.  The .198 batting average, .248 on base percentage, and .292 slugging was at least temporarily sent to Tacoma in favor of James Jones. As this is Jones’ first year in the majors, Seattle Mariner fans should both be encouraged and excited while also...
