Adam Jones returns to the Orioles lineup tonight as the designated hitter after a two-game absence.

Jones is looking for his first home run since May 11. He’s driven in three runs during that stretch.

Everth Cabrera is starting at shortstop, with J.J. Hardy listed among the reserves.

Jimmy Paredes, 1-for-20 with 11 strikeouts in his last five games, also is on the bench
