Double-A Mississippi manager Phillip Wellman has an interesting way to describe Braves' lefthanded-hitting outfielder Brandon Jones' swing. "It's like when you look at a piece of art and it is beautiful and you can't understand why," Wellman said. "That is how his swing is. You can't pinpoint why it is more beautiful than others, but you can tell that it is."
