An infielder with legit five-tool potential, Pirate prospect Jacoby Jones was drafted by the team in 2013's third round, and should take a long and slow route to MLB. Jones zipped up the charts when he won the Cape Cod League's home run derby last season, and his speed is either plus or plus-plus, depending on who you ask, so he's got the raw ability. In results-based viewpoints, however, he's clearly showing his inexperience. He struck out far too much (55 times in 139 ABs in that Cape Cod showcase), and he really hasn't found a home in the field yet, though his tools suggest the outfield might be best. It'll be awhile before he learns how to play well enough to really take advantage of his toolset, but if he develops as expected, he could be an all-around All Star quality player one day.
