The top two-way player in the class, Jones is a lanky, 6-foot-7, 212-pound lefthanded pitcher and first baseman. While he has more upside as a pitcher, Jones did show good feel for the barrel and is surprisingly athletic for his size, stealing bases and posting a 4.22-second home-to-first run time at the Area Code Games this summer. On the mound, Jones throws a fastball that is mostly in the 89-93 mph range in short stints, but also has a mid- to upper-70s curveball with tremendous depth that projects as a plus offering. Because of his size, athleticism and the efficiency of his delivery despite only pitching seriously for about a year, Jones has some of the highest upside of any player in the class. He is committed to Vanderbilt.
