Connor Jones’ Scouting Report

Jones has an athletic frame to go with a promising mid-90s four-seam fastball and a sinking two-seamer to complement it. He also has an above average changeup, a potential plus-slider and a decent curveball. He has repeatable mechanics, uses his whole body well and knows how to command all his pitches. Jones has a variety of pitches and probably the best changeup in this year’s draft.

Where could Jones end up in the draft?

The Angels may be the ceiling for Jones with the floor being the Cardinals at 34. I could see Jones falling to the Dodgers at 34 if Kyle Muller or Robert Tyler isn’t available.
