11 330 Cleveland Indians Hunter Jones OF Calif. $225,000
Third baseman Jones is the son of Tracy Jones, a former big leaguer selected in the first round of the 1983 draft by the Reds out of Loyola Marymount. Like his dad, Hunter is a multi-tool talent and is committed to Loyola Marymount. With an athletic 6-foot-2, 195-pound frame, Jones has a powerful arm and well-above-average speed--4.0 to 4.10 seconds from the right side of the plate to first base with a clean start. His hands and actions aren't quite smooth enough for the hot corner, but a future move to the outfield should suit him well. Concerns about Jones' bat will move him down in the draft. He has bat speed but often drags the barrel through the zone, resulting in weakly hit balls toward the right side of the diamond. If his bat comes around, Jones could be a first-round candidate in 2013.
