2015-02-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)I've been asking everyone on JaCoby Jones, but heard nothing. Seems to have plus power and run tools and the Pirates seem to think he can stick at SS. He is hitting for now, but has a bad approach. Does he have a big ceiling or just old for the level?
(Matt from Cambridge)
You've come to the right place, Matt. I'm a big Jones fan. He's a risky prospect, but his ceiling is very high. I saw a good amount of him a few summers back when he played on a star-studded Harwich team that set the Cape all time record for team homers. That squad also had Austin Wilson, Eric Jagielo, Phil Ervin, AJ Reed, Brian Ragira and Brett Austin. Fun times. Jones's batting practice group was ridiculous every game. Here's the thing - he's a fast twitch guy. Great athlete. Runs, throws, makes outstanding defensive plays, can hit the ball a mile in batting practice. Will he hit? His approach, pitch recognition and command of the strike zone have a ways to go. Ultimately, it's hard to predict him hitting enough to be more than a role 5 type average regular, but I still think that's possible. And after you (quickly) run out of guys you're confident will be role 5+ Jones offers as much upside as basically anyone. (Al Skorupa)
