KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Whenever the Adam Jones tells Buck Showalter something is wrong, as he did after crashing into the outfield wall on Thursday, the Baltimore manager listens just a bit more closely.
"You'd better multiply it times two," Showalter said, "because he's a tough nut."
Jones was hurt in the first inning of the Orioles' 5-3 loss to the Kansas City Royals when he came up short of tracking down a fly ball. The All-Star bounced off the wall and onto the warning track, where he lay for several minutes before eventually finishing the inning.
