Buck Showalter says Adam Jones' ribs are fine

Buck Showalter says Adam Jones' ribs are fine

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Adam Jones is in the Orioles lineup, batting second. In Jones’ last at-bat on Monday night, he appeared to wince as he swung and grounded out to the mound.

Manager Buck Showalter said that Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette called trainer Richie Bancells because he was worried that Jones had reinjured the rib cage that kept him out of the starting lineup for six gmes.

“I see the same thing y’all do, and I know Richie’s going to check with him. Adam has some type of expression after every swing,” Showalter said.

Meanwhile, the Orioles escaped Monday night’s game without having to change their infield alignment. For the time being, the team doesn’t have a backup infielder since Ryan Flaherty was optioned to Norfolk to allow the team to temporarily carry 13 pitchers.

J.J. Hardy, who has never played second base professionally would shift to second in Jonathan Schoop had to leave.

“Buck talked to me about it in an emergency,” Hardy said. “I’ve been over there when we’ve done shifts and stuff.”

Manny Machado could shift to shortstop.

“It would definitely be different. Obviously it’s a shorter throw to first base, turning double plays is a totally different side of the bag. But I’ve turned a few when we are in the shift. Let’s just hope, keep our fingers crossed, there’s no emergency,” Hardy said.

Flaherty’s flight to Norfolk was delayed, and he’ll be in the starting lineup on Wednesday.

When Trey Mancini was promoted to the Tides, Sarasota H.S. product Joey Terdoslavich, who the Orioles acquired from Atlanta in January, was sent to
