After missing two games with an ankle injury, Adam Jones is back in the Orioles’ lineup as the designated hitter tonight against the Astros.

Jones sprained his left ankle on a slide into home plate on Thursday night and hasn’t played since Friday, but the swelling has subsided and he told Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com that he felt fine after running in the outfield this afternoon. While he’d rather be playing center field, he acknowledged that he shouldn’t “try to be Superman right now.”

Jones is off to another strong start this season, batting .304/.343/.457 with six home runs and 26 RBI across 48 games.
