Not that his health is an excuse for what happened on the play, but (Adam) Jones isn't 100 percent physically.
"His knee is sore," Trembley said. "He's had some fluid taken out of his knee. He'll get some more fluid taken out of his knee, I think, after the game right now. He's fouled a bunch of balls off his shins.
"He plays with a lot of heart. I mean, the game in Seattle that we scored five in the ninth, he showed me something. The take-out slide at second, running hard on an infield ball. He's a man. And he won't draw attention to himself for being banged up and he won't use that as an excuse. But he needs a couple days to get it back."
There apparently haven't been any serious discussions about keeping Jones out of the All-Star Game.
"He's fine," Trembley said. "His mother will be there. She'll take care of him."
