Adam Jones is back in the Orioles' lineup after leaving Sunday’s game with right wrist pain.
He had his right wrist – which he injured while sliding a while ago – and his left wrist examined Monday in Sarasota and everything came out fine. No breaks, only bruises.
So fine, Jones said, that he spent part of Monday with injured teammate Nick Markakis at Markakis’ pool in Sarasota.
“I knew there was nothing, but they just wanted it. So I wasn’t tripping,” he said. “Instead of coming up here and enjoying a rainy off day, I was jumping into Markakis’ pool. He has like a 10-foot bank, I was jumping into the pool, cannon-balling, and eating pizza.”
