Adam Jones Heads West

GOODYEAR, Ariz. — The Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with free-agent outfielder Adam Jones pending a physical according to multiple reports.

The deal, which the D-backs have yet to confirm, is worth $3 million.

Jones was one of the most popular Orioles in Baltimore. Over his 13-year big league career, Jones has been selected to five All-Star Games.

Jones ranks among the Orioles’ top 10 on several franchise leaderboards, including games (1,613, ninth), runs (875, seventh), hits (1,781, fifth), home runs (263, fifth), and RBIs (866, sixth).

In 2018, Jones batted .281 in 145 games. His 15 home runs and 63 RBIs were his lowest totals in both categories since his first season in Baltimore in 2008. Jones established deep ties to the Mid-Atlantic region. An alumnus of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, he’s developed a reputation for being one of MLB’s most community-minded players, donating time and money to multiple organizations in and around Baltimore.

He will be missed by fans in Baltimore.
