2016

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.
