  • Orioles placed OF Adam Jones on the bereavement list.
    Advice: The move won't be made official until Friday but Jones did not travel with the team to Cleveland following a death in his family. He's expected to return for the team's series against the Mets, which begins on Tuesday. Jones' roster spot will be absorbed by Craig Gentry, who is back after missing nearly two months with a fractured rib.
  • Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports hears that Adam Jones has cleared revocable trade waivers.
    Advice: That means he is eligible to be traded to any team, but Jones has stated a desire to remain in Baltimore through the end of the season and his 10-and-5 rights allow him to veto any potential deal. There was real interest from the Phillies at the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline -- Jones apparently even had conversations with members of the Philadelphia front office -- but Heyman says the 33-year-old impending free agent "might be more likely to consider an AL team, where he’d have a chance to DH as well as play the outfield."
  • Adam Jones will be placed on the bereavement list later this week.
    Advice: He is likely to miss the Orioles' weekend series versus the Indians. Jones is starting in right field and batting third Tuesday night against the Mets.
  • Adam Jones went 2-for-4 with a double as the Orioles fell to the Red Sox in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.
    Advice: As a team, the Orioles tallied just five hits in the contest, with Jones the only player to have multiple knocks as well as the only extra-base hit. He's enjoying another solid season across the board, slashing .287/.315/.435 with 12 homers, 47 RBI and three stolen bases.
  • Adam Jones will play right field for the rest of the season for the Orioles, with Cedric Mullins taking over in center field.
    Advice: The out-of-contention Orioles want to see if Mullins can be their solution in center field in 2019 and beyond and Jones is an impending free agent, so the move makes sense. Jones played a little left field for the Mariners back in 2007 but has never played anywhere other than center in his 11 seasons with the Orioles.
  • Adam Jones is not in the Orioles' lineup Thursday against the Rays.
    Advice: The veteran is just getting a maintenance day after playing the last two nights on the turf at Tropicana Field. Joey Rickard will take the reigns in center field and bat eighth Thursday versus right-hander Hunter Wood.
