Terry Jones Report

Terry Jones, 3B, Philadelphia Phillies
Drafted 4th Rd, 2001 Draft, HS, Upland, CA
Bats R/Throws R
21 YO, 6'2", 190 lbs

He's still young enough to turn it around and salvage a career for himself, but I have my doubts. He came into the season with a career .233/.300/.368 line in 647 at bats. He missed most of this season with a foot injury, and only hit .204/.300/.333 in 147 at bats when he did play. He's a hacker, who's struck out 3 times for every walk he's drawn. His isolated slugging percentage isn't anything to write home about. And he obviously isn't going to challenge Ichiro! for a batting title anytime soon. He's praised for his defense, but there's little use for a defensive specialist at third base these days.
