Jones in center field in Dunedin

SARASOTA, Fla. - Orioles manager Buck Showalter wasn’t kidding. He’s taking Adam Jones to Dunedin for today’s game against the Blue Jays.

Jones is starting in center field. Alexi Casilla is the shortstop after being scratched from Friday’s lineup with a hyper-extended left knee, and Rule 5 pick Michael Almanzar moves across the diamond to first base.
