"He's a guy I'm watching, because he has what we don't have a lot of, and that's power," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Saturday. Despite amassing six homers in the first two games of their current four-game series at Colorado, the Giants ranked last in MLB with 55 home runs entering Saturday.
Versatility works in Jones' favor. He has started 22 games at third base -- mostly during Christian Arroyo's stint in the Majors -- as well as 11 games at first base, 11 in left field and two in right. If the Giants want him in the Major Leagues, finding him a spot won't be too difficult.
A second-round Giants Draft pick in 2013, Jones commanded attention by batting .385 with a 1.121 OPS in 18 games during Spring Training.
