Marlins, Padres show interest in Jones

That didn’t take long. The Marlins and Padres have shown interest in ex-Tiger Jacque Jones, according to’s Joe Frisaro. It continues a long-running interest from the Marlins in Jones, whom they nearly traded for last summer. From the story:

Jones was designated for assignment on Monday. If the Marlins move in
quickly on the outfielder, a deal could be worked out in the next day
or two.

The Padres, according to a second source, also have inquired about Jones.

It’s hard to envision anyone trading for Jones with his salary when they could wait a while and grab him as a free agent for the minimum, leaving the Tigers to pick up the rest.

To go over the changes

  1. Jacque Jones designated for assignment.
  2. Matt Joyce called up from Toledo and is in RF.
  3. Sheffield is batting sixth and playing in LF, the latter per his request.
  4. Carlos Guillen will hit third.
  5. Magglio is still batting cleanup, but is DHing again today and will probably do that part-time while splitting time in RF.

Got all that? OK, here’s the lineup:

  1. Granderson, CF
  2. Polanco, 2B
  3. Guillen, 3B
  4. Ordonez, DH
  5. Cabrera, 1B
  6. Sheffield, LF
  7. Joyce, RF
  8. Renteria, SS
  9. Rodriguez, C
