The 33-year-old San Diego, California will be playing for his third MLB franchise. Besides the Orioles, he began his career with the Seattle Mariners.

This will be the first-time in his career that Jones will be playing in the National League.

During last season, Jones refused a trade to another team before the trade deadline. Instead, he wanted to play out the season in Baltimore.

This past season, he had a .281 batting average with 15 home runs and 63 RBIs in 145 games. He also had 35 doubles on 163 hits, while scoring 54 runs.
