Yahoo wrote:Jul 11 Jones could be called up Thursday to start in right field, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports.

Recommendation: According to the report, Jones will take over in right, sending Jose Guillen to left and Raul Ibanez to DH. The odd man out is Jose Vidro, who will move to the bench. It's time for this move as Jones has little to accomplish at Triple-A, and Vidro is a hole in the lineup. Jones is hitting .309/.377/.585 with 21 home runs and 21 doubles.

Probably a smart idea to wait until after the series with the Tigers...

Miller, Bonderman, Rogers, Verlander would be a tough way to start your season in the bigs..

Any more word on this? I'm trying to choose between dropping Adam Jones for a mediocre guy like Luis Castillo for my Util slot or sticking it out with Jones in a weekly changes league. Our new week starts tomorrow so I don't get the benefit of waiting another day. :(

June 11th from Rotoworld:

The site that filed the report has backed off it now, and the Mariners have done nothing to suggest it's going to happen. "I haven't heard anything about Jones coming up," hmanager John McLaren said. "I haven't heard anything about it at all." Perhaps it's something the Mariners will consider later this month.

I read somewhere that one of the reasons Seattle isn't bringing Jones up is a big trade is in the works to get Griffey back.

Found it
From the Sports : Ken Griffey Jr., OF, Reds. You have to think Reds GM Wayne Krivsky knows his team has gotten lucky with Griffey's health this year. Why not take advantage of that, especially when Cincy has a potential overload at OF/3B? I can see Junior heading back to Seattle. Maybe that's why the Mariners didn't call up outfield prospect Adam Jones as expected this week -- something might be in the works.Sporting News:
For what ever its worth. Guess its really no different than most rumors at this poing . But when the Reds were in Seattle the fans really supported bringing Griffey back.

So sign Junior and keep Jones down? Doesn't make sense.
