Jones will play all summer at 16 years old and his skills show it against older competition. But at 6-4, 210 with enormous strength and bat speed, his potential is as large as his frame. Watching him take batting practice with wood was both instructive and enjoyable. Jones natural swing right now is very line drive oriented, but he hits the ball so hard on occasion that the park can’t hold it. Probably the best thing he can do now at the plate with wood, aside from just getting more repetitions, is develop a quicker and shorter trigger that will enable him to get the bat head to the ball more quickly. He must be something to watch with aluminum in his hands; we wouldn’t want to be playing down at third base when he does. Jones’ mobility and throwing arm at first base are playable and will likely improve with maturity. He did show particularly good hands on throws in the dirt and this should be a strength for him in the future. Look for Jones to create lots of interest with MLB scouts. He's a definite higherst level DI bat and with serious power potential. Daryl is also a good student.
