Report: Adam Jones unlikely to waive no-trade clause

Adam Jones

Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones appears unwilling to waive his no-trade clause despite the fire sale taking place around him.

According to various reports on Sunday afternoon, Jones, who can block a trade to any team, is inclined to remain with the Orioles for the remainder of the season before becoming a free agent at season’s end.

Dan Connolly of The Athletic added that Jones does not want to uproot his family midseason and wishes to say a proper goodbye to Baltimore, where he has become a major part of the community off the field.

Jones has received plenty of interest, including from the aforementioned Phillies. It doesn’t sound like he’ll be traded, though not for a lack of desire on Baltimore’s part.

Jones turns 33 next week and is hitting .281 with 11 home runs. He apparently values the opportunity to stay in Baltimore and say goodbye ahead of the chance to play for a contender.
