Jones was MVP of the World Wood Bat event in Jupiter, Fla., last October, performing at the plate (11-for-21, 10 RBIs) and on the mound, winning the title game for the East Cobb Astros. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Georgia signee has tools but had a poor spring and did not build on his stellar showcase performance. His swing can be long and gets uphill, preventing him from hitting for power. He's a solid athlete and an average runner who profiles better at second base than at shortstop due to his average speed. Jones tops out in the upper 80s off the mound, though he has a sharp curveball, and should be an effective two-way college player.
