9/27/2014 10:21:00 AM
Description: Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones should be avoided in his Saturday matchup with Stephen Strasburg.
Insight: Jones is just 1-for-18 with half the at-bats ending in strikeout. He's batted .248 this season with 15 HR and 53 RBI and does have eight hits in the last three games, but an extremely unfavorable matchup.
 
9/14/2014 9:11:00 AM
Description: Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones hit a solo home run against Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick for Miami's only run on Saturday as Philadelphia won, 2-1.
Insight: Miami has struggled without Giancarlo Stanton in the lineup as they have scored just four runs in the last 22 innings since he left. Every hitter in the Marlin lineup loses fantasy value without Stanton, but besides Marcell Ozuna, Jones is the only power bat left for Miami. He has 15 homers with 51 RBI and is batting .242.
 
9/11/2014 1:15:00 PM
Description: Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones is 1-for-10 lifetime with five strikeouts against Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers.
Insight: Fiers is a decent pitcher, but it is not like he will be in Cy Young contention anytime soon. Jones just doesn't see the ball well against him. Don't start Jones on Thursday.
 
8/30/2014 10:54:00 AM
Description: Miami first baseman Garrett Jones is a career .417 hitter (10-for-24) with a home run, three doubles and six RBI against Braves starter Aaron Harang.
Insight: Jones is struggling this month, batting .197 with two doubles and four RBI. He is also only hitting .225 with three home runs and eight RBI since the All-Star break. So if you are going to start him, today would probably be the day.
 
8/23/2014 11:07:00 AM
Description: Miami first baseman Garrett Jones is 9-for-16 (.563) with two doubles and two homers in his career against Rockies starter Jordan Lyles.
Insight: Those numbers are too good to ignore even though Jones has struggled since the All-Star break. He has a .770 OPS against right-handers this season.
 
8/11/2014 11:10:00 AM
Description: Miami first baseman Garrett Jones is 7-for-13 (.538) with a pair of homers and five RBI versus Cardinals right-hander Shelby Miller.
Insight: Jones has struggled since June, hitting just four homers in 56 games and batting .220.
 
7/29/2014 10:01:00 AM
Description: Miami first baseman Garrett Jones is an ugly 1-for-18 (.056) against Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg.
Insight: Despite a six-game hitting streak don't be surprised if Jones (.255, 11 HR, 41 RBI) gets the night off, but even if he's in the lineup fantasy owners should stay far away.
 
7/22/2014 3:28:00 PM
Description: Miami first baseman Garrett Jones is not in Tuesday's starting lineup versus Mike Minor and the Braves.
Insight: That's his reward for producing the game-winning two-run single Monday night, he doesn't have to face a left-hander. He's batting .164 against southpaws this season.
 
7/5/2014 10:38:00 AM
Description: Miami first baseman Garrett Jones is a career .700 hitter (7-for-10) with a pair of home runs and a 2.250 OPS against Cardinals young right-hander Shelby Miller.
Insight: Jones has hit double-digit home runs for the sixth consecutive season, but has only hit two long balls in the past four weeks (23 games).
 
6/17/2014 10:45:00 PM
Description: Miami first baseman Garrett Jones went 1-for-4 with a homer and three RBI Tuesday against the Cubs.
Insight: Down 4-3 in the bottom of the seventh, Jones hit a go-ahead three-run homer off Brian Schlitter. Jones has nine homers against righties this season and is batting .188 with zero homers against lefties.
 
Hot6/13/2014 7:00:00 PM
Description: Miami first baseman Garrett Jones is getting the night off Friday against Pittsburgh. SOURCE: Joe Frisaro, MLB.com
Insight: Jones has been on a tear lately, hitting .343 over his last 35 at bats. Jeff Baker (.238, 1 HR, 10 RBI) will take over at first base.
 
6/6/2014 8:59:00 PM
Description: Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones went off for three hits Friday against Chicago.
Insight: It's his second three-hit game in a row. After a disappointing year in Pittsburgh last season (.233, 15 HR, 51 RBI), Jones seems to have resurrected his career in Miami with a .278 average through 58 games. He's a good player to have in fantasy because he's eligible at outfield as well as first base.
 
Hot6/1/2014 10:12:00 AM
Description: Miami first baseman Garrett Jones had a .904 OPS in May and he has a favorable matchup Sunday against Braves starter Aaron Harang.
Insight: Jones has hit .389 with two doubles and one homer in 18 at-bats against Harang. The 32-year-old is hitting .286 with 12 doubles, eight homers and an .897 OPS against right-handers this season.
 
Hot5/23/2014 10:19:00 PM
Description: Miami first baseman Garrett Jones went deep twice in Friday's loss to the Brewers.
Insight: Both homers were solo shots. Jones has driven in ten runs over his last eight appearances. During that span, his batting average has improved by nearly 40 points (.248 to .286).
 
5/22/2014 10:56:00 AM
Description: Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones will get Thursday off as the Marlins face a tough left-hander in Cole Hamels.
Insight: Jones is hot with six hits in the past two games to raise his average to .280 with a solid .828 OPS.
 
5/13/2014 11:08:00 AM
Description: Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones is 5-for-6 (.833) with four extra base hits and a 2.667 OPS versus Dodgers right-hander Josh Beckett.
Insight: Sure, its a tiny sample size, but he obviously sees the ball well out of Beckett's hand. Jones is batting .239 with five homers this season, though he has just one long ball in his last 12 games.
 
Cold5/8/2014 10:25:00 AM
Description: Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones has batted .417 (5-for-12) with a double and a homer against Padres starter Ian Kennedy.
Insight: Jones has gone 1-for-16 in his last four starts, but his matchup with Kennedy on Thursday could be fruitful. Jones has picked up all 11 of his extra-base hits (6 2B, 5 HR) and 26 of his 30 hits in his 91 at-bats (.286) against right-handers this season.
 
4/29/2014 3:25:00 PM
Description: Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones is not in Tuesday's starting lineup. Jeff Baker will get the at-bats.
Insight: Jones has knocked four at of the park this season, but is batting just .237 through the first 24 games. It's been since 2009 that be posted a batting average above .275.
 
4/15/2014 11:31:00 AM
Description: Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones is 1-for-15 (.067) with nine strikeouts versus Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg.
Insight: While Jones has homered in his last two games, the unfavorable matchup is likely to win this battle.
 
4/10/2014 9:59:00 AM
Description: Marlins first baseman Garrett Jones is 1-for-12 (.083) with seven strikeouts versus Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg.
Insight: We're still waiting for Jones to produce the home run power he showed us in Pittsburgh. He's yet to go deep for Miami and the home park is not conducive to the long ball.
