2014-09-15 19:30:00 (link to chat)What have you heard on Franklin Barreto? He is 18 year old shortstop, in low A, and hit .311 with 6 HR and stole 29 bases in 79 games. Also is JaCoby Jones a guy to keep an eye on? I mean he is college guy in A, but 23 HR and 17 SB ca't be ignored. But A seems low for a college guy and he hasn't exact moved fast. Thanks Ben.
(Matt from Cambridge)
Both are legit fantasy prospects at this point, to be sure. Jones is probably the safer bet to reach the majors, but Barreto has the higher upside, and thatís who I prefer. Youíre going to have to wait a while, but you could be left with a quality starting fantasy shortstop. (Ben Carsley)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on JaCoby Jones? Any chance of making the 101 next season?
(Dave from Pittsburgh)
I don't see him as a Top 101 talent at this point.

I like that the Pirates are giving him a shot at playing shortstop, with center field as a backup option, but he's a ways from making that type of prospect leap. (Mark Anderson)
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)Between Josh Bell, Jacoby Jones, and Austin Meadows, who becomes the best major league regular? And what do the Pirates do with them with the outfield being pretty much set for the next 5-6 years?
(PirateCaptain from Pittsburgh)
Josh Bell > Austin Meadows >>> Jacoby Jones for me. I think Bell could end up at 1B for them and Meadows is way too far away to worry about right now. By the time heís ready in, like, 2017, who knows how McCutchen/Marte/Polanco will be performing? Jones isnít in the same tier as these guys. Hope you're enjoying the chat more than Twilight! (Ben Carsley)
2014-05-07 17:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on JaCoby Jones? I've been monitoring him all year, and finally pulled the trigger after his 4th HR of the year the other day. Dropped Mac Williams for him in a deep league.
(username49 from Ohio)
Hi username49. I knew your brother, username43. We went to school together.

Jones is really athletic but from everything I've read the tools are still a long way off from translating into skills. I think he might eventually pan out, but he might be a Dom Brown type who doesn't make it until his mid-20s (not comparing him to Brown stats wise, just age wise). (Mike Gianella)
2013-03-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know its early, but who are some names who could highlight rnd 2?
(webberoo11 from Las Vegas)
Lots of names that could go later on Day 1 or drop to 3rd or 4th Round depending on the rest of the spring. I'd look to guys like Jagielo (3b/of, Notre Dame), Windle (lhp, Minnesota), Ciuffo (c, Lexington HS (S.C.)), JaCoby Jones (of/2b, LSU), Marco Gonzalez (lhp, Gonzaga), Hunter Renfroe (of/c, Mississippi St.), Chris Okey (c, Eustis HS(Fla.)) and Chad Pinder (3b/ss, VaTech). (Nick Faleris)
