Adam Jones?

Is he up for good? If he is, what kind of numbers can be expected from him?

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

I watched part of the game the other night. He pitch ran and stole second base and it wasn't even close. He's got the tools. I faabed him Sunday for $20.00 in my 12 team AL only $260.00 keeper.I've got 8 weeks to watch him and decide to keep him or throw him out there for trades. $20.00 might be alot to bring back next year but if he does as well as expected he'll go for that or close to it in my league.I'm a believer.

Has his PT situation changed?
He is obviously ready to play.

Struck out a ton in AAA, which only gets worse when he faces better pitchers in the majors (too bad he can't hit some of the guys on his own team...Jeff Weaver, Horacio Ramirez, and Washburn, lol).

I don't see him hitting better than .260 in limited duty, though he does have very real power. One thing to note from his minor stats is also a really bad steal success % despite his good speed, which indicates he's not good at the mental part of the baserunning game--knowing when a pitcher's going to throw the breaking ball, being able to read their move to home, etc.

Don't expect too much.
