[5/23/2016] Yomiuri Giants take Garrett Jones off the active roster

The Yomiuri Giants decided to take Garrett Jones off the active roster after his 0-for-4 (three strikeouts) and two error outing on May 22 against the Chunichi Dragons at Nagoya Dome. The Giants may have been able to look the other way if his production at the plate was better, but after his first modasho (three or more hits in one game) of the year on May 14, he has gone 4-for-20 (three singles and a triple) with eight strikeouts.

Leslie Anderson (left elbow) could get a shot on the active roster. He got the start at first and hit a two-run home run during a Eastern League Challenge Match against the Futures at Giants Stadium on May 22. He also recorded a double in his first rehab game on May 19.
