The Baltimore Orioles have placed outfielder Adam Jones on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left foot. Jones has played in 108 games for the Orioles this season and he is 111 for 398 (.279 avg, .725 OPS) with 53 runs scored, 7 homers, 50 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. The Orioles will miss Jones’ defense more than his bat as Jay Payton will be taking over as the starter in CF. Payton has played in 93 games for the Orioles this season and he is 52 for 216 (.241 avg, .653 OPS) with 23 runs scored, 6 homers, 36 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. The Orioles have recalled outfielder Luis Montanez to replace Jones on the roster. The 27-year old righty swinger made his major league debut last night and he went 0 for 1. Montanez has played in 116 games in AA-ball this season and he is 151 for 451 (.335 avg, .986 OPS) with 90 runs scored, 26 homers, 97 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. He is more of a corner outfielder.
