News: Jones connected with a solo home run -- his 11th of the season -- to lead the Marlins over the Astros on Sunday. Impact: Slashing at a .252/.317/.416 rate, Jones is enjoying a bounce-back season in Miami. Jones is perhaps best suited for a platoon role with each of his 11 home runs coming against right-handed pitching. Miami's lack of depth, however, pushes the veteran first baseman into the lineup more often than not.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones is not in the lineup Friday against the Astros, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Impact: Manager Mike Redmond has been sitting the 33-year-old against lefties over the past month or so, and considering Jones' .483 OPS against southpaws, it's not a surprise the skipper is doing so again Friday even with the DH option available to him in Houston.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Braves, according to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro. Impact: Jones knocked in the game-winning runs in Monday's game, but he will be held out Tuesday with left-hander Mike Minor on the mound for the Braves. Jeff Baker will start at first base in Jones' place.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones played the hero Monday night, singling home a pair in the 10th inning to give the Marlins a 3-1 win against the Braves. Impact: Jones also singled earlier in the game. The first baseman has struggled in July, hitting .167 this month with just three RBI. Monday's heroics could be a sign of better things to come for Jones following the All-Star break.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones is out of the Marlins' lineup Friday against the Giants, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Impact: Jones hit just .190/.242/.224 against lefties in the first half, so it doesn't come as a surprise that manager Mike Redmond is turning to Jeff Baker to man first base Friday against Madison Bumgarner. It would make sense if the skipper moved to a more even platoon split in the second half.(RotoWire, )
