  • Diamondbacks Sign Adam Jones To 1 Year $3 Million

    D-backs to sign OF Jones to 1-year deal

    Free-agent outfielder Adam Jones has agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks, sources told ESPN's Jeff Passan.

    A first-round pick of the Seattle Mariners in 2003, Jones was one of five players traded to the Baltimore Orioles in return for pitcher Erik Bedard in 2008. Since joining the Orioles, the 33-year-old outfielder has been named an All-Star five times and has won four Gold Gloves.

    Known for his consistency and durability, 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.

    In late July, Jones made headlines when he vetoed a trade that would have sent him to the Philadelphia Phillies.
