Drafted in the 8th round (258th overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 2012 (signed for $35,000)
Jones was a 13th-round choice last year by the Orioles, but returned to Wazzu for his senior year. With a stocky build at 6 feet and 225 pounds, Jones is limited to left field, as he's a below-average runner with fringy arm strength. He does have a nice swing with good bat speed. Jones looks more comfortable in the box this year than he did last year, and his numbers reflect that. Through 196 at-bats, he hit .337/.445/.577 and scouts believe he'll be a fringe-average hitter with average power. Teams looking to save money for other picks could bump Jones up their draft boards.
