2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Jones has always been a difficult player to evaluate, as his above-average power and speed leads to impressive counting stats, but itís also hard to ignore the holes in his swing and his lack of a true position. The Tigers saw something they liked, as he was the lone piece they received from Pittsburgh in a deadline deal for Joakim Soria. Unfortunately, he will miss the first 50 games of 2016 after testing positive for a drug of abuse for a second time. Jones had 16 homers, 25 steals (on 32 attempts), and a .257/.322/.415 line between two organizations in 2015 while splitting time at High-A and Double-A as a 23-year-old. Shortstop is his current position, but at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, he is a better fit at third base. This fits perfectly with what the Tigers may need in the near future if Nick Castellanos continues to turn in below replacement-level campaigns. Still, the potential for a utility player or Quad-A type remains the most likely long-term outcome for Jones.

2015

Jones, a 2013 third-round draft pick, has one of the highest offensive upsides in the Pittsburgh organization. He hit .288/.347/.503 with 23 homers and 17 stolen bases for Low-A West Virginia in 2014, though at 22, the LSU product was a bit old for his level. He also committed 24 errors in 99 games at shortstop, bringing into question whether he ultimately might move to another position. Jones has experience in center field, but the Pirates' stacked outfield might mean a move to second or third base in the future. For now, he'll continue moving up the organizational ladder -- most likely playing for High-A Bradenton in 2015 -- in a farm system lacking players with his potential offensive ceiling.
