Jones' MRI shows sprain; he hopes to play soon
Adam Jones said his MRI on Saturday showed a sprained right thumb – and no extra damage.
So he said he figures he’ll try to play through it and then rest after Sept. 28th’s season-ender. Jones hasn’t started since Friday, Sept. 9 at Toronto. He was not in Saturday’s starting lineup.
“I can’t hurt it no more,” he said. “It’s painful not to play, too, so I’m going to try and play and tolerate it.”
He has no problem gripping a ball, but when he swings a bat and makes contact, he feels the pain.
