Jones hopes to avoid platoon spilt
Garrett Jones has been struggling since the end of June. Even he has acknowledged it saying “It’s been a struggle.”
Moving into the 2011 season, General Manager Neal Huntington said they might look into a platoon situation for Garrett Jones who hits well against righties (.271/.340/.450) and struggles against lefties (.213/.253/.343).
But does Jones think he can play everyday?
“Yeah. My production was down this year. But nothing’s set in stone,” Jones said. “I think they’re just looking at different options for next year. For me, I’ve got to go into the off-season and really work on my swing, find a way to get out of some of these funks I’ve had. I’ll come in prepared for next season and, whatever decision they make … I’m going to make it hard on them to do something like that.”
