Bradley Jones- Lansing Lugnuts

Bradley Jones is using the 2017 campaign to assert himself as a force to be reckoned with the bat and the Blue Jays are undoubtedly taking notice of the numbers Jones is compiling game in and game out.

The native of Travelers Rest, South Carolina was drafted in the 18th round, 552nd overall by the Jays in the 2016 amateur draft from the College of Charleston. Jones who is off to a monstrous start often gets overshadowed by his teammates and uber prospects Vladimir Guererro Jr. and Bo Bichette.

Jones is batting .331 with 39 hits including 6 home runs and 26 runs batted in for the Lugnuts. The 21-year old has played both second base and first base for his manager while raking with the lumber. His working slash line is impressive, to say the least at .331/.394/.576 as Jones occupies the clean-up spot in the Lugs lineup.

Last season with the Bluefield Blue Jays Jones hit .291 with 16 round trippers in 61 games during his rookie campaign. This kid is a legit prospect and will soon be mentioned in the Baseball America Top Prospect rankings if he continues to shine.
