Orioles: Adam Jones in camp
Adam Jones worked out for the first time today and showed off his new body, which isn't quite as big as everybody expected. He came in, by his estimation, at 225 pounds, but said that he played at 215 last year. That's a little different than the reports that he went from 200 to 225 in one offseason.
Jones said he was interested to see how the new outfield alignment will mesh and applauded the contract the Orioles gave to outfield mate Nick Markakis. He also said he'd like to see the club sign Brian Roberts to a four-year deal.
"I would love to see him here for a long time,'' Jones said. "They signed Markakis for six years. Why not sign Brian for four. I think that's what he wants."
