Jones was added to Cleveland's 40-man roster Friday.

Jones is one of Cleveland's top prospects, so it's not surprising to see him protected from the Rule 5 draft. The 22-year-old trained at the alternate training site in 2020, but he's yet to advance past the Double-A level. He hit .253 with eight home runs and 22 RBI with Double-A Akron in 2019.
