11/9/2014:  Semones is an athletic 5-foot-11 and could add some muscle to his frame. He is also a middle infielder and brings that athleticism with him to the mound.

7-20-2018:James Madison junior Fox Semones had another one of the best swings of the event, hitting an opposite-field two-run homer on a fastball away. The 5-foot-11, 170-pound righthanded hitter also singled the other way on an 82 mph slider on the outside corner. He finished 3-for-6 with three runs and three RBIs in the two games, stealing two bases for good measure. Semones has been a rock-steady performer for two years at JMU, posting an .806 OPS as a freshman and an .823 OPS as a sophomore, with seven homers this spring. He doesn’t profile as a big power threat in pro ball, but he has proven that he has enough strength to hold his own and drive the ball into the gaps. He’s a good runner with 15 stolen bases this summer for Bethesda, and he’s a versatile defender who can hold his own at second base or in the outfield, though he looks most natural at second, where his arm is playable.
