LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2020 Atlantic Coast Prospect Showcase  
Taj Jones is a 2022 LHP/1B/OF with a 6-3 170 lb. frame from High Point, NC who attends Southwest Guilford. Long and lean build with tons of physical projection remaining. Works from the stretch with a well controlled and paced delivery, long and loose arm action with an extended 3/4's arm slot, creates some cross body angle at release. Fastball topped out at 81 mph with very good extension to the plate at release, showed the ability to get inside to right handed hitters with his angle. Developing curveball, tends to slow his arm at release. Plus young pitchers build, should continue to improve with additional strength and further work on his breaking ball. 7.24 runner, showed good athleticism to the ball in the outfield and the same loose and easy arm he showed on the mound. Outstanding student.
