Newly extended Adam Jones needs an MRI on sore wrist

The Orioles are already without two-thirds of their outfield with Nolan Reimold and Nick Markakis on the DL. Now they’re holding the breath awaiting word on Adam Jones, who will undergo an MRI on his right wrist Monday.

Jones has been feeling pain in the wrist for weeks, and he had X-rays after coming out of Sunday’s game in the ninth inning for a pinch-hitter. Those came back negative.

“It just didn’t feel right,” Jones said. “I can feel it when I’m hitting. [The doctors] wanted to get a picture of it, and I wanted to get a picture of it, and see what’s going on in there so we can be sure and relieve any doubt.”

The timing is interesting, given that Jones just signed a new six-year, $85.5 million contract extension a week ago. The wrist injury obviously predates that agreement. However, it’s not like the wrist has been hurting his performance at all. He smacked two homers in a game Tuesday, and he’s currently sporting a .965 OPS after “bottoming out” at .905 on May 13.

    Blue Jays stealing signs & beaning people left & right….Jones, Wieters during the O’s series. I’ll laugh when they they are out of the playoff race by the All Star break

      Agreed! The O’s are fading fast.

        pc, I think you’ve struck a sore point.

        The Orioles have only won 2 out of their last 10 games.

        It’s really not that sore considering the O’s have lost 9 of 11 and are still in front of the Jays…

        They lost 9 out of 11 you report! Condolences Orioles fans!
