RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Thomas Jones.
Selected in the third round of the 2016 draft, Jones was viewed as one of the best athletes in the entire draft class. As a two-sport high school athlete, he received scholarship offers from several top football programs but ultimately chose to pursue a professional baseball career. At 6-foot-4, 195 pounds, the young outfielder displays elite speed and the frame to potentially become a power hitter down the road. In his first season with the Marlins Gulf Coast League affiliate, Jones batted .234/.380/.313 in 80 plate appearances. He posted a 25 percent strikeout rate and an impressive 13.8 percent walk rate. At just 19 years old, the Marlins hope their toolsy outfielder can develop into a future MLB star, but a potentially below average hit tool could get in the way of that. His tools make him worth following in dynasty leagues, but the risk is so extreme that he is best left alone in leagues that roster 200 or fewer prospects.
