    Jones is a 5-foot-10, 170-pound scrapper without a true plus tool, but he has hit line drives since the day he entered the Michigan State lineup as a redshirt freshman in 2010. A career .359 hitter, he makes consistent contact from the right side of the plate and provides gap power. His below-average speed plays up on the bases and in the field due to his instincts. He's a surehanded defender but lacks the arm strength to play much on the left side of the infield, which restricts his usefulness as a utilityman.
