Roster move official: Outfielder James Jones recalled from Tacoma

The Mariners made the news official today recalling outfielder James Jones from Class AAA Tacoma. To fill the spot vacated by Abraham Almonte, who was optioned to Tacoma after yesterday’s win in Houston.

This will be Jones’ second appearance with the Mariners. He made his big league debut on April 18, going 1-for-1.

In 21 games with the Rainiers he was batting .321 (26-for-81) with 3 doubles, 1 triple, 2 home runs, 8 RBI and 5 stolen bases. He leaves Tacoma with an active 10-game hitting streak (.333/14×42).

Almonte, played in 27 of the Mariners’ 29 games and made 25 starts (all in center field). He was batting .198 (21×106) with 5 doubles, 1 triple, 1 home run and 8 RBI and a league high 40 strikeouts.

The line-up isn’t out. But the Mariners face lefty Scott Kazmir tonight. They may wait a day to give Jones a start. They face right-handers – Jesse Chavez and Dan Straily – in the next two games.
