Drafted in the supplemental 1st round (41st overall) by the Atlanta Braves in 2005 (signed for $825,000)
Jones capped a banner senior season with two gems in the state 5-A playoffs. First he no-hit traditional power Barbe High in the regional round. Then he outdueled the state's top prep lefty, Captain Shreve's Sean West, with a 15-strikeout shutout in the quarterfinals, pitching around a 142-minute rain delay and throwing 120 pitches in the process. Of the state's quality high school southpaws, Jones is the least projectable but has the best breaking ball with his nifty curveball. He also works in the 90s and has touched 94 mph with his fastball. Jones already is physically mature, but his stuff will be plenty good as it is. Scouts are more concerned with his laid-back nature, though that figures to make him more signable and less apt to follow through on his commitment to Louisiana State.
