Jahmai Jones 2022


Recommended Posts

He didn't look good last year, for sure.   He also got off to a really good start at Norfolk last year so let's take this with a grain of salt.   Having said that, he's 10 for 30 with half of those hits being for extra bases.  He's only struck out 3 times with 8 walks.   Of course, those are numbers that impossible to keep up on the plate discipline but it still bears watching because it suggests that he's made some improvements there.   The defensive position is still in question but he's still only 24 and a talented athlete.   I would love to see him stay down for an extended period to see how much he bounces down to reality instead of having a quick callup this year.

They both are on the 40 man.

In that case it's probably a tossup but slight edge to Jones because he was already up last year and they might decide that this is the year to find out if he's a keeper or not.   He's about to get squeezed at the AAA level by the AA infielders plus Vavra.

Any idea what Jones' injury is? He's on the 7-day IL.

He's having a pretty forgettable year at AAA. .212/.339/.343. 

Hard to see him with much of a future in Baltimore at this rate. It was a nice flyer to take, but the competition for 2B is pretty stiff and the O's are clearly content to go with stopgaps like Odor until someone beats down the door. I'd say he's squarely on the 40-man bubble and in danger of DFA sometime this season or in the off-season.

    • There are a few problems. One, Scott has regressed big time. He can't make shots at all. Young has a bit too, although he had a big game against Penn State. Those two need to score a lot if this team wants to do anything.  The team has zero depth. None of the freshmen have looked that good. Kaiser finally made some big shots tonight, but has struggled mightily. Same thing with Harris-Smith, he has struggled big time. We are counting on those two being impact players right away, and it doesn't look like they are. Lamothe doesn't get any playing time. There is no one off the bench that is good. Batchelor sort of sucks. Losing Martinez and Hart hurt a lot, they both brought energy and scoring. Long brings a little, but his game is limited. The good news is the season is still young. The losses against Davidson and UAB were bad without a doubt. Aside from that they don't have any bad losses. If they had lost against Penn State at home, which they almost did, that would have been trouble.  Julian Reese looks to have improved a lot, I will say that. He is not good at the free throw line, but he is a monster rebounder and can score around the hoop. Finally, 3 point shooting- they suck. Like really bad. Willard needs to recruit some shooters badly. If the freshmen improve and Scott finds his game, this team will get better. But I don't have any large hopes for this year. If they make the tournament as an 8-10 that would be a small miracle. 
    • Let us have our fun and hope for the worst possible outcome.   Soto was DRS  -4 and OAA -9 playing LF last year.  We can only hope it gets even worse in NY.   Surprisingly, his 35 homers show an expected home run total of only 27 if playing all games in Yankee Stadium.   In old Yankee stadium they used to call LCF Death Valley.  I guess it’s still kind of big out there.   Good luck in NY, Juan.  NOT!
    • It's still a great trade and the Yankees have deep enough pockets to replenish their pitching with FAs. It doesn't reak of desperation at all to me. Literally every team should have been calling the Padres about Soto when they put him on the market because players "that good" are rarely ever available. 
    • Back the truck up for Elias and Sig. 
    • It’s like the Yankees have a crystal ball with a look into their future with Soto and Stanton on the same roster.
