Ori­oles cen­tre-fielder Jones moves to right

Waterloo Region Record - - Sports -

BALTIMORE — Long­time Baltimore Ori­oles cen­tre-fielder Adam Jones will move to right field to make room for rookie Cedric Mullins. Jones has started in cen­tre for Baltimore since his ar­rival in 2008. The 33-year-old has played the po­si­tion well enough this year, but the last­place Ori­oles are ready to try some­one younger and faster in the mid­dle of the out­field. Mullins, 23, had his con­tract se­lected from Triple-A Nor­folk on Fri­day and was im­me­di­ately in­serted into the start­ing lineup against Bos­ton. He was to play cen­tre field and bat ninth in his bigleague de­but. Mullins was se­lected by Baltimore in the 13th round of the 2015 draft.
