Player Outlook
A 6-foot-6 left-handed slugger with long strides on the bases and in the outfield, Spencer Jones' hit tool will be the swing skill. He has been handled with kid gloves since the Yankees selected him with the No. 25 overall pick in 2022, never getting an aggressive assignment and only playing 17 games at Double-A to close out his age-22 season. He had a 29 percent strikeout rate at High-A and a 28.2 percent strikeout rate at Double-A. Jones hasn't shown pronounced lefty/righty splits, so he will either be an everyday player who hits for 30-plus homer power with 10-20 steals or he won't hit enough to play regularly in the majors. He profiles best in left field, which puts even more pressure on his bat. Given his age (turns 23 in May), he won't get the benefit of the doubt if he struggles in a return to Double-A.

  • Yankees' Spencer Jones: Makes season debut

    Jones (neck) played his first game of the season for Double-A Somerset on Saturday, going 2-for-3 with one walk, one double, three runs and one RBI. Jones missed the first seven contests of the campaign for Somerset due to a stiff neck, but he didn't appear to be hampered by the issue in his return to the lineup. The 22-year-old was tabbed to begin the season at the Double-A level after an impressive spring training with the Yankees, but he could get his first taste of Triple-A ball in short order if he continues to perform well. Jones is among the organization's top prospects and could make his MLB debut sometime this season.

  • Yankees' Spencer Jones: Continues impressive spring

    Jones went 3-for-4 with a pair of home runs, three total runs and four total RBI in Saturday's Spring Breakout game against the Blue Jays. The inaugural Spring Breakout showcase is intended to highlight each team's best prospects, and Jones certainly made his presence known with his pair of blasts Saturday. It's been a standout spring overall for the 22-year-old, who is slashing .412/.524/.647 with a home run, four RBI, seven runs and a 3:3 BB:K over 11 contests in the regular Grapefruit League slate. Jones is slated to begin the regular season in Double-A ball, but he could reach the big leagues by the end of the campaign if he continues to impress in the minors.

  • Yankees' Spencer Jones: Gets spring-training invitation

    The Yankees have invited Jones to participate in major-league spring training, Bryan Hoch of reports. Jones is considered one of New York's top hitting prospects after he slashed .267/.336/.444 with 16 home runs, 66 RBI and 43 stolen bases between High-A and Double-A last season. The 22-year-old was selected by the Yankees 25th overall in the 2022 First-Year Player Draft and hasn't taken long to impress members of the organization. While he'll get a chance to display his skills against big leaguers during spring training, Jones is almost certain to begin the campaign back in Double-A and may not reach the majors until 2025, though there's a chance he gets his first cup of coffee late in the upcoming campaign.

  • Yankees' Spencer Jones: Over 20 steals at High-A

    Jones is hitting .263 with a .356 OBP, three home runs, 10 steals and a 27.4 percent strikeout rate in his last 30 games for High-A Hudson Valley. Jones is having a strong statistical year, slashing .263/.330/.470 with 10 home runs and 21 steals, but given that he turned 22 in May, he's simply meeting expectations against High-A pitching. His strikeouts are down slightly and his walks are trending up over the past month, but we should learn much more about the viability of his hit tool when he is facing age-appropriate pitching at Double-A.

  • Yankees' Spencer Jones: Popping in minors

    Jones has hit .352/.416/.550 with four home runs and 12 steals through 24 minor-league games, most of which have come at Single-A Tampa. The No. 25 overall pick in this year's draft, Jones has long been compared to Yankees superstar Aaron Judge, and it's hard not to see some similarities between the two 6-foot-7, power-hitting, nimble-footed Californians. (It gets even eerier when you look at their college stats.) At 21, Jones is a little on the older side for the Florida State League, but he's doing everything you could possibly ask for from a 2022 draftee. Don't sleep on him; as a college bat, he could move quickly through the organization.
