2015

Jones was the Mariners' regular center fielder for a good portion of summer, but he gave way to Austin Jackson after the trade-deadline acquisition. Speed is Jones' only offensive weapon as he has no power, and he struggled with plate discipline. A two-month stretch with his batting average in the .280 range was largely built on a high BABIP. On the basepaths, though, he was caught stealing just once in 28 attempts. And even after Jackson's arrival, he still kept running, stealing seven bases in his last 29 games. Jones could land a reserve outfield role in spring training. While his bat won't do anyone any favors, his speed his intriguing.
