Also, Markakis' absence in right is a real strain on center fielder Adam Jones. He won't admit it, but it isn't easy for him to be flanked in the outfield by guys who aren't traditional outfielders: Chris Davis, Ryan Flaherty, Steve Pearce, Steve Tolleson, and potentially Robert Andino. Jones was charged with an error Thursday when he collided with Flaherty in left-center and dropped a fly ball. As the outfield general, it's Jones' responsibility to get to every ball he can. Flaherty is an inexperienced outfielder – he's a shortstop by trade – and didn't pull off when he should have.
