Adam Jones and When an Aggressive Approach Goes Too Far - GammonsDaily.com

So when Jones gets into pitchers counts, he’s not being patient enough to get his pitch.

Last season, Jones offered at 73.9% of all pitches thrown to him in three-ball counts, which was third-highest in baseball. His ability to remain deliberate within the boundaries of the strike zone was even more appalling, as his 62.7% chase rate with three balls in the count led all of baseball in 2014. The result: Jones got on base much less frequently than he should have, posting a .400 on-base percentage in three-ball counts, which was third lowest in the majors and significantly lower than the .565 league mark.
