Jones not called home, but may be sitting out, or something
All kinds of places reporting all kinds of things. The truth may be just as confusing as the conflicting rumors at this point, as Shannon Drayer pointed out:
Since speaking to the Mariners I have received an email reply from Adam saying that he is still in Venezuela and, “I don’t know what is going on, but I am just trying to stay cool.” If you know Adam at all, he can’t help but stay cool.
Interesting that he is in Venezuela and not playing. Adam has not played in a game for Lara since January 9, did not even play in a double header on the 10th. While the club may not have called him home, it appears that they have told him not to play.
Could be they are debating shutting him down after a good winter or possibly, something is in the works on the trade front.
So at this point, it appears that many places — the Baltimore Sun, wherever — are reporting that he’s been told to return home, which appears to not be true, from the original now-disputed Venezualean report, but at the very least Jones isn’t playing for reasons we don’t yet know.
