Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones is in the lineup as the designated hitter for the second straight day Tuesday, June 10. Jones said that being DH for back-to-back contests will keep his legs rested so he can go stronger as the season progresses.
Fantasy Tip: Jones is hitting .455 over 33 at-bats in June heading into Tuesday, so Baltimore will stick with whatever makes Jones comfortable. He's experiencing a fine positive statistical regression that should bring him close to his draft-day value by season's end.
