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.
fielder. Missed a lot of time in college with a fractured arm. Had
successful surgery, but due to health concerns Jones went undrafted.
