Drafted in the 5th round (180th overall) by the St. Louis Cardinals in 2012 (signed for $220,300)
Jones started his collegiate career at Pepperdine before transferring to Canyons, where he has shortened his arm stroke and improved his alignment by throwing across his body less. His arm strength has caught scouts' attention, making him a candidate to be a top-five round pick. At his best, Jones has touched 95-97 mph, but he works more consistently in the 88-93 range. His fastball command is spotty at best. His breaking ball is inconsistent, sometimes looking like a slightly above-average power curveball in the 80-83 mph range, sometimes getting slurvish, and usually rating below-average. He has limited feel for a changeup, and he profiles best as a reliever.
