Orioles outfielder Adam Jones sat out of Saturday’s 5-4 loss to the Blue Jays due to swelling in his left ankle, which was struck by a foul ball on Friday night.

That one day of rest apparently did the trick.

According to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun, Jones is back in the Baltimore starting lineup for Sunday’s series finale with Toronto, batting fifth and playing center vs. Jays starter Dustin McGowan.

Jones has batted .280/.320/.463 with 23 home runs, 80 RBI and 11 stolen bases through 139 games this season. Many of those marks are career highs, and he has another few weeks to pad his 2011 stats.

UPDATE, 12:40pm: Connolly now reports that Jones has been scatched from Sunday’s lineup due to lingering soreness in his ankle. Nolan Reimold will start in left field and Matt Angle will play center.

    I feel sorry for Jones, but how about some sympathy for Toronto’s shortstop Escobar. He had to leave yesterday’s game after being hit on the elbow by a pitch from Baltimore’s starter. The elbow is quite swollen and his return to action is unknown. In today’s game Dustin McGowan was making his first start since the summer of 2008. He had some control problems and did not go very deep. Toronto’s other reclamation project had a better day. Former Baltimore starter Adam Loewen played CF and had 2 hits including his first major league home run.
