37 1133 Boston Red Sox Aaron Jones C Calif.
Catcher Aaron Jones has attracted significant buzz late in this spring season, and some even liked him better than Stefan Sabol. While that may be a stretch, Jones is a powerfully built 6-foot-1, 205-pounder with interesting power potential generated from a sweeping uppercut swing. His release and catching skills are raw, unrefined and somewhat stiff. He employs a spread-out, crouching stance at the plate, with his hands held well beyond his back shoulder. An Oregon recruit like Sabol, Jones will be a tough sign.
