Jones has not walked in 30 games.

With Brian Roberts recently making significant strides in his recovery from a right hamstring surgery, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Wednesday that the second baseman could begin a minor league rehab assignment right after the team’s road trip ends Sunday.

30 -- games since center fielder Adam Jones last drew a walk.

With 15 home runs and 51 RBIs, Jones is one of the most dangerous hitters in the Orioles lineup. Jones is third among Orioles regulars with a .301 average, but his on-base percentage is just .325. That's because Jones hasn't drawn a walk since May 18. He has earned just eight free passes this season, which is fewer than Nolan Reimold, who has appeared in just 31 games. And it's one more than Steve Pearce, who has had a little more than a quarter as many plate appearances as Jones has had. But considering the pop that Jones provides them, the Orioles can live with his lack of walks.

Just sad. For a "star" I expect a .350 OBP. If Jones doesn't change his approach, he's going to have to hit .330 every year.

Too many guys on this team don't walk enough. Jones is the most extreme of the bunch.

Even Nick doesn't walk as much as he used to. Earlier in his career, he posted on-base percentages around 400.

It's not necessarily his approach alone. He just seems have some terrible pitch recognition.

Tillman is not starting out sufficiently.
