MLB Opening Day: Tigers’ JaCoby Jones hits 1st home run of season

This just in: JaCoby Jones is good at baseball.

MLB: Spring Training-Detroit Tigers at Atlanta Braves Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

If you were one of the many members of the Detroit Tigers fan base fretting about the trade of center fielder Cameron Maybin with no presumably reliable answer to replace him, allow JaCoby Jones to ease your mind for the moment.

Starting off his season with a three-run home run in his first plate appearance was sweet enough, but one thing to take notice of is the seven-pitch at bat he worked before parking that ball deep in the left field seats. If that’s the JaCoby Jones we get this year then we’re going to have a lot of fun.
