Angels' Jahmai Jones: Could receive first callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is a candidate to earn big-league playing time in 2020 if the season takes place with expanded rosters, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Jones slashed .250/.250/.450 with a home run and a double across 20 Cactus League plate appearances before play was suspended. He was optioned to Triple-A in March and was expected to open the season there. However, with the minor-league season in limbo and a potential major-league campaign likely to include expanded rosters and a 20-man taxi squad, Jones could feasibly find his way to the Angels at some point during the campaign.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Heading to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday.

Jones struggled in 130 games at the Double-A level last season, hitting just .234/.308/.324. Given that he'd already played 48 games at that level in 2018, however, the Angels are apparently content to have him climb the ladder despite his poor performance at the plate.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Protected from Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was added to the Angels' 40-man roster Wednesday.

His stock is down compared to where it was a couple years ago, but Jones is close enough to the majors that the Angels opted to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. Jones, a second baseman who can also play the outfield, hit .234/.308/.324 with five home runs and nine steals in 544 plate appearances during a repeat of Double-A.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Playing well in Arizona Fall League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is hitting .286 (4-for-14) with four walks for Mesa of the Arizona Fall League.

Jones hit .321 for Mesa last season and has continued his strong showing in 2019, reaching base in eight of 18 plate appearances. He has also been successful on three of four stolen-base attempts after being caught on 10 of 18 tries with Double-A Mobile this season.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Returning to Arizona Fall League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will play with Mesa in the Arizona Fall League, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Jones took part in the AFL with Mesa last year as well, hitting .321 with a pair of homers and four stolen bases in 78 at-bats. He has stalled somewhat in his development with Double-A Mobile this year, hitting only .232 and succeeding in only eight of 18 stolen base attempts while striking out 104 times in 466 at-bats.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Heads to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Jones was invited to major-league camp and got some valuable experience, but he'll head to minor-league spring training following this latest update. He reached Double-A Mobile last year and slashed .245/.335/.375 with two homers and 20 RBI over 48 contests.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Invited to major-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was invited to the Angels' major-league spring training Friday.

Jones reached Double-A Mobile for the first time last season. He hit a mediocre .245/.335/.375 in 48 games at that level, so he'll likely need some more seasoning before he's under serious consideration for a roster spot.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Drives in five at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones went 2-for-5 with a home run, double and five RBI for Double-A Mobile in its 10-1 win over Birmingham on Sunday.

Jones has turned in multi-hit performances in four of his last five starts with Mobile, lifting his batting line to .257/.353/.406 through his first 25 games in the Southern League. The 21-year-old has unsurprisingly seen his numbers take a slight hit from 2017 while facing off against higher-caliber competition, but he's thus far received high praise from within the organization for the transition he has made defensively from the outfield to second base.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Moves up to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was promoted to Double-A Mobile on Tuesday.

He didn't earn the promotion in the same manner he has earned previous promotions, but after 116 career games at High-A, it seems the Angels wanted to give Jones a trial by fire against Double-A pitching. Jones, who moved from the outfield to second base this year, hit .235/.338/.383 with eight home runs and 13 steals in 75 games at High-A.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Moving to second base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is transitioning from the outfield to playing second base, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Jones worked his way up to High-A Inland Empire last season, where he hit .302/.368/.488 and stole nine bases over 41 games. Although he was on his way to becoming a promising outfield prospect for the Angels, the club has opted to have the 20-year-old continue his development as a second baseman. Because Jones played the keystone during high school, general manager Billy Eppler is confident that the transition should be smooth. If Jones adapts well and continues impressing offensively, a promotion to Double-A Mobile could be in order this year.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Reassigned to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels reassigned Jones to their minor-league camp Saturday.

The toolsy Jones had earned an invite to his first big-league spring training after breaking out last season with a .282/.348/.446 line, 14 home runs and 27 steals across stops at Low-A Burlington and High-A Inland Empire. Look for the 20-year-old to open the 2018 campaign at the latter destination, with a promotion to Double-A Mobile likely in store for him by midseason if he's able to pick up where he left off in 2017.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Getting reps at second base?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones may get reps at second base this spring, Josh Mayhood of Halos Heaven reports.

Jones grabbed an infielder's glove for some workouts Wednesday morning, and when Rex Clevinger of Halos Heaven asked him why he needed that glove in addition to his outfield mitt, Jones replied that he might be playing some second base. A move to second base actually would make a lot of sense for Jones, who is perhaps the best athlete in the Angels' system, but at 6-foot, 215 pounds, he is built like a second baseman and his plus speed may tick down in the coming years, which would make him less of an asset in the outfield. Additionally, the Angels' other elite prospects, Jo Adell and Brandon Marsh, play the outfield, and the team already has plenty of depth there at the big-league level. A move to second base would boost Jones' dynasty-league value, as it would make it more likely that he could break through as an everyday player. After hitting .302/.368/.488 in 41 games at High-A last year, Jones might be ticketed for Double-A to begin the 2018 campaign.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Set to attend spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was invited to the Angels' spring training as a non-roster invitee, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

A strong start at Low-A Burlington earned Jones a promotion to High-A Inland Empire during the 2017 season. Over 41 games with Inland Empire he hit .302 with an .856 OPS. His speed was on display at the two levels as well, as he combined to steal 27 bases. However, he was also caught stealing on 13 occasions.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Surging at Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones, 20, is slashing .344/.397/.544 with four home runs, 14 RBI and eight steals in 30 games since being promoted to High-A Inland Empire.

Jones has emerged as the bona fide No. 1 prospect for the Angels, flashing speed, emerging power and the ability to hit for average. He'll need to work a bit on his pitch selection and recognition in order to improve his on-base skills overall, but he has clearly been able to take full advantage of the friendly hitting confines of the California League thus far.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Promoted to High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was promoted to High-A Inland Empire on Thursday.

Jones has reversed course after a tough start to the season at Low-A Burlington, slashing .272/.338/.425 over 86 games with nine home runs and 30 RBI. The top prospect has also been tearing up the basepaths when he gets on, recording 18 stolen bases. Although the 19-year-old is still a couple years away from the big leagues, his ascent through the minors serves as a positive sign for the future.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Reversal of fortune at Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones, 19, has rebounded from a poor start and is currently slashing .266/.332/.394 through 65 games for Low-A Burlington.

Jones is hitting .316 over his last 10 contests, and he has shown an intriguing combination of power and speed in 2017. The teenager has five home runs and 13 steals this season. Jones remains raw, but has exceptional physical tools that are starting to translate to the diamond.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Struggling to hit for average at Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones, 19, is batting just .184/.222/.301 with three home runs, eight RBI and five steals through 25 games for Low-A Burlington.

Jones is considered one of the top prospects in the Angels organization, but he has struggled to make contact during the early portion of the 2017 campaign. Still, he has the potential to hit 10 home runs and steal 20 bases at a minimum, so he is worth keeping track of as he continues to mature and progress.

Angels' Jahmai Jones: Showing five-category potential in Pioneer League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones, 18, is hitting .326/.392/.485 with two homers and 10 steals (on 13 attempts) in 132 at-bats in the Pioneer League.

The Angels have been rightfully crucified for how bad their farm system has been in recent seasons, but Jones, along with 2016 first-round pick Matt Thaiss, are starting to turn that narrative. At 6-foot, 215 pounds, Jones is the exact type of rookie ball hitter dynasty league owners need to be rostering. It will be four or five years before he reaches the majors, but there is legitimate five-category upside here.
