Former Oriole Adam Jones could be headed to play in Japan

Few, if any, Baltimore sports fans have anything other than fond memories of Adam Jones with the Orioles. Unfortunately for Jones, the fond memories of Orioles fans aren’t sufficient to sustain an MLB career. Jones didn’t get a 2019 contract signed until March 11, less than a month before Opening Day.

It seems that Jones doesn’t want to wait until then to find out where he’ll play in 2020. The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reported on Monday afternoon that Jones is in talks with the Orix Buffaloes of Japan’s NPB (Nippon Professional Baseball) league.
