Jones possesses a strong athletic frame standing around 6-foot. Jones moves well in the outfield, with it looking like he is effortlessly gliding to the ball. Shrinks the field when he is in center and makes it tough on opposing teams to use the middle of the field. At the plate did not see many pitches to hit on the night, got hit with a fastball on the first pitch of the game. Saw a lot of offspeed on the night, but showed patience in allowing the game to come to him and did not chase pitcher’s pitches in early counts. He will be the focal point of every staff they face this year so it is important that Jones stay patient and hit his pitches when he is in his counts. Runs well out of the box and if he can get on from the leadoff spot it puts a lot of pressure on the opposing pitchers and should allow the Hopewell hitters to see more mistakes over the plate with Jones’ speed on the bases.

2.17.18: Jones is 6-0 with an athletic frame, a stronger lower half and some projection left to his frame. He hits from the right side from an open upright stance. Strides on line, smooth load back, good relaxed rhythm. Short to ball, uphill swing path, barrel through zone quickly, line drive hitter, worked gap to gap, exit velocity was 83. In the outfield, gets behind the ball, has good footwork, fields it with above average hands. Quick clean exchange, throws from a three-quarters arm slot, short loose arm action with easy effort, outfield velocity was 88. Ran a 4.05 home to first, has a chance to be a game changing defender in the outfield.

10.31.17:  Athletic projectable frame at 6-foot, 170-pounds. Hits from a tall set up, quiet load, shorter swing path with average bat speed. Sprays ball around the field. Was a 3.97 on a drag bunt and ran a 6.97 60-yard dash. Quick first step with a lot of range in the outfield. Loose arm action with some carry on throws from the outfield.

6.3.17: Jones has a lankier frame with a lot of athleticism. Hits from the right side from an open stance, strides on line, smooth load and good rhythm. Short level swing with good hips and balance.
