Adam Jones remains out of the Orioles’ lineup, could be headed to the disabled list

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones is out of the lineup tonight for the eighth time in the past 10 games and it sounds like the team is just about ready to place him on the disabled list with a shoulder injury.

Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports that Jones did some throwing today for the first time in a week and if he has shoulder soreness tomorrow a disabled list stint will likely be required. He’s already remained on the active roster far longer than most injured players trying to stay off the DL, but clearly the Orioles wanted to avoid shutting him down if at all possible.

David Lough has been the primarily fill-in for Jones and Nolan Reimold has also seen some action in center field.
