Scouting Report
: Big, tough lefty who can go a lot of innings out of the pen. Above average command, deceptive delivery. Goes right at hitters.  Utilizes a 88-91 mph two-seam fastball and a tough slider, which is rather new to his arsenal.  Also has a low 80s slider - almost a slurve-type pitch. He has a low 80s circle change that he's moved in an out of his arsenal. Good composure on the mound, works well with men on base and in pressure situations. Great success against righties, but not all that effective against lefties.  Has not been used as a lefty specialist in the past, and due to his reverse split he does not project to be used in that capacity in the future. Good fielder. Missed a lot of time in college with a fractured arm.  Had successful surgery, but due to health concerns Jones went undrafted.
