It's no secret that the Yankees top prospect, Spencer Jones, is a freak of nature. Clocking in at 6' 6"/235 lbs, Jones draws a lot of comparisons to Yankee captain, Aaron Judge.


Jones was extended a non-roster invite to Spring Training in early February. The Yankees obviously wanted to see what Jones had to offer during this year's Spring Training. Well, Jones gave the Yankees an exciting debut.


Spencer Jones went 3-3 in yesterday's 22-10 blowout win against the Tigers. Of those three hits, Jones smacked two singles (one of which was a 12-pitch AB), and racked up four RBI. His last hit was a 470-foot home run that wowed the entire Yankee fan base.

 

Manager Aaron Boone had this to say about Spencer Jones' performance...


"He hit some balls the other way with authority.
Obviously got a peek at the power... he moved around well in center field. Pretty good debut in big league spring training."
 

What excites the Yankees fanbase the most is that Jones is just 22 years old. Their other top prospect is Jasson Dominguez who impressed in his MLB debut last season. The Yankees have a bright future in the outfield with their two top prospects, Aaron Judge, and potentially Juan Soto.


However, Jones is versatile. He can also play first base at a serviceable level. That gives the Yankees options of having Jones as a potential Anthony Rizzo replacement in the near future.


Spencer Jones' 2023 was an impressive one. Between High-A Hudson Valley and AA Somerset, Jones slashed .267/.336/.444 with 16 home runs and even swiped 43 bags, showing his speed.


The Yankees have a bright future with Spencer Jones, in whom they have been hesitant in trading with other GMs calling of his availability. The youngster has all the makings of being an important piece of the Bronx Bombers future.
