News: Jones is not in the lineup Tuesday versus the Nationals. Impact: After starting the past three days, Jones will take a seat as the Marlins face Stephen Strasburg. Despite riding a six-game hitting streak, Jones has struggled overall in the month of July, batting just .221 with five RBI and 13 strikeouts. Jeff Baker will get the start at first base Tuesday.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones doubled, tripled, drove in two and scored a run in Miami's win over the Nationals on Monday. Impact: The first baseman has a six-game hitting streak, during which he is 9-for-26 (.346) with a home run and five RBI. For the season, Jones has posted a .255/.319/.426 slash with 11 home runs, 41 runs scored and 41 RBI in 97 games.(RotoWire, )

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, )
Mon. July 21, 2014
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, )
