Drafted in the 7th round (223rd overall) by the Detroit Tigers in 2010 (signed for $115,000)
The phalanx of scouts who descended on CS Fullerton this season to see Christian Colon and Gary Brown couldn't help noticing Jones, a 2B who enjoyed a breakout season driving both of them in. A left handed hitter, Jones has hit .378 with 9 home runs so far in 2010, and just as impressive is his .601 slugging percentage and .465 on-base percentage. In the fall of 2008, Jones suffered a badly broken leg which forced him to take a medical redshirt in 2009. He rebounded in the summer of 09, being named MVP of the Northwoods league. Jones is a decent defender with acceptable speed.
