Adam Jones Report

Adam Jones, SS, Seattle Mariners
Drafted 37th Overall, 2003 Draft, HS, San Diego
Bats R/Throws R
19 YO, 6'2", 185 lbs

It's a little early to say for sure, but I think I'd probably like to see what Jones could do on the mound. Most teams respected him more as a pitcher than a hitter leading up to the draft, mostly because of his low 90's fastball. He hasn't done much with the bat so far as a pro. In 2004, he hit .267/.314/.404 in 510 Midwest League at bats with a 33 walks and 124 strikeouts. Defensively, he holds promise with a strong arm and good hands, but he's still a work in progress on that side of the ledger.
