Outfield Gold Gloves are not given, but earned. Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones flashed some serious defensive moxy at Toronto Blue Jays SS speedster Jose Reyes by limiting him to a double. By limiting him to a double, I mean bare hand, off the wall, one hop, to Machado, tag down, you’re out. Sounds like a H-O-R-S-E shot. Watch it all unfold (courtesy of MLB.com):
No question why the 28-year-old Jones already has two Gold Gloves in his closet, and is in line for a third on his way to many more. The out in the first inning certainly was key in the Orioles 2-run victory to hang close in the American League Wild Card.
