News: Jones is out of the lineup Monday, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports. Impact: It's just a standard day off for Jones, who has started seven of the Marlins' last eight games. Justin Bour will get the start at first Monday.(RotoWire, )
Sep 14, 2014
News: Jones launched a solo home run in a loss to the Phillies on Saturday. Impact: It was Jones' only hit of the day and Miami's only run of the day as their bats were largely neutralized by Kyle Kendrick and the Phillies' bullpen. He's now up to 15 home runs on the year, but Jones has struggled since the All-Star break, batting just .218/.286/.381 in 44 second-half games.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones is out of the lineup Friday against the Phillies, Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

News: Jones went 1-for-2 with a run scored in his return to the lineup Sunday against the Braves. Impact: After receiving back-to-back days off to clear his head, Jones responded with a fifth inning leadoff double and would come around to score the games' first run. Slashing .241/.310/.398 for the season, the Marlins appear to finally be realizing that Jones is over-extended as an everyday player. Expect Jeff Baker and Justin Bour to continue to work in at-bats at first base down the stretch.(RotoWire, )
Sep 7, 2014
News: Jones is back in the lineup Sunday against the Braves, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.

Sat. Sep 6, 2014
News: Jones is out of the Marlins' lineup again Saturday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Impact: This comes as no surprise, with the Braves trotting out lefty Alex Wood on Saturday, but Jones sat Friday against right-hander Aaron Harang, and it seems his opportunities may be scaled back a bit over the final weeks of the season. Jeff Mathis will start at first in place of Jones, who is batting just .206/.281/.325 since the intermission.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 5, 2014
News: Jones is not in the lineup Friday, the Sun-Sentinel's Juan C. Rodriguez reports. Impact: Jones starts roughly 80 percent of the Marlins' games, but has been fairly underwhelming this season, hitting just .240 with 13 home runs. Justin Bour will get the start at first base Friday.(RotoWire, )
