  • Yankees' Spencer Jones: Makes season debut

    Jones (neck) played his first game of the season for Double-A Somerset on Saturday, going 2-for-3 with one walk, one double, three runs and one RBI.

    Jones missed the first seven contests of the campaign for Somerset due to a stiff neck, but he didn't appear to be hampered by the issue in his return to the lineup. The 22-year-old was tabbed to begin the season at the Double-A level after an impressive spring training with the Yankees, but he could get his first taste of Triple-A ball in short order if he continues to perform well. Jones is among the organization's top prospects and could make his MLB debut sometime this season.

  • Yankees' Spencer Jones: Sitting out due to neck stiffness

    Jones isn't in Sunday's lineup for Double-A Somerset for the third straight day due to a stiff neck.

    According to Matt Kardos of, Jones was first scratched from the lineup Friday after waking up with a stiff neck. The young slugger didn't play Saturday either, though Somerset manager Raul Dominguez said Jones was feeling better, per Mike Ashmore of MyCentralJersey Sports. The injury doesn't seem to be a major concern, but it's somewhat dampened the momentum Jones built after an impressive spring training with the Yankees during which he slashed .444/.583/.722 with a home run, four RBI and a 5:3 BB:K over 23 plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Spencer Jones: Continues impressive spring

    Jones went 3-for-4 with a pair of home runs, three total runs and four total RBI in Saturday's Spring Breakout game against the Blue Jays.

    The inaugural Spring Breakout showcase is intended to highlight each team's best prospects, and Jones certainly made his presence known with his pair of blasts Saturday. It's been a standout spring overall for the 22-year-old, who is slashing .412/.524/.647 with a home run, four RBI, seven runs and a 3:3 BB:K over 11 contests in the regular Grapefruit League slate. Jones is slated to begin the regular season in Double-A ball, but he could reach the big leagues by the end of the campaign if he continues to impress in the minors.

  • Yankees' Spencer Jones: Likely to begin season at Double-A

    The Yankees reassigned Jones to minor-league camp Tuesday, and he's expected to begin the campaign with Double-A Somerset, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    Jones turned heads in his first major-league spring training, slashing .438/.526/.688 with a home run, four RBI, six runs and a 2:3 BB:K over 18 plate appearances. However, the 22-year-old never had a real chance of breaking camp with New York given that he's never played above the Double-A level. Jones spent most of last year in High-A ball before being promoted to Double-A for 78 plate appearances late in the campaign. If he gets off to a strong start with Somerset, he could reach Triple-A in short order and could also get his first cup of coffee in the majors by the end of the season.

  • Yankees' Spencer Jones: Raking in first spring training

    Jones drilled a 470-foot homer in his first Grapefruit League at-bat, Jon Heyman of the New York Postreports.

    Jones isn't on the Yankees' 40-man roster, but he received an invitation to spring training for the first time after posting a .267/.336/.444 slash line with 16 home runs, 66 RBI and 43 stolen bases between High-A and Double-A last season. The 2022 first-round draft pick showed off his massive power the first time he stepped up to the plate this spring, crushing a 470-foot shot to right-center field off Tigers reliever Mason Englert. Jones has continued raking since that at-bat, as he's gone 5-for-5 with a walk, four total runs and four total RBI through two games. He's very unlikely to break camp with the big club, but his impressive work in Grapefruit League play could help his chances of making his major-league debut at some point this season.

  • Yankees' Spencer Jones: Gets spring-training invitation

    The Yankees have invited Jones to participate in major-league spring training, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    Jones is considered one of New York's top hitting prospects after he slashed .267/.336/.444 with 16 home runs, 66 RBI and 43 stolen bases between High-A and Double-A last season. The 22-year-old was selected by the Yankees 25th overall in the 2022 First-Year Player Draft and hasn't taken long to impress members of the organization. While he'll get a chance to display his skills against big leaguers during spring training, Jones is almost certain to begin the campaign back in Double-A and may not reach the majors until 2025, though there's a chance he gets his first cup of coffee late in the upcoming campaign.

  • Yankees' Spencer Jones: Bumped up to Double-A

    The Yankees promoted Jones from High-A Hudson Valley to Double-A Somerset on Sunday.

    The 22-year-old outfield prospect turned in a .787 OPS while striking out at a 29.1 percent clip over 457 plate appearances at Hudson Valley. He had cut his strikeout rate down to a more palatable 24.1 percent since the All-Star break and has consistently made an impact on the basepaths throughout the campaign, notching 34 steals in 43 attempts.

  • Yankees' Spencer Jones: Over 20 steals at High-A

    Jones is hitting .263 with a .356 OBP, three home runs, 10 steals and a 27.4 percent strikeout rate in his last 30 games for High-A Hudson Valley.

    Jones is having a strong statistical year, slashing .263/.330/.470 with 10 home runs and 21 steals, but given that he turned 22 in May, he's simply meeting expectations against High-A pitching. His strikeouts are down slightly and his walks are trending up over the past month, but we should learn much more about the viability of his hit tool when he is facing age-appropriate pitching at Double-A.

  • Yankees' Spencer Jones: Mashing at High-A

    Jones is slashing .351/.405/.730 with three home runs, two steals and a 14:4 K:BB in 42 plate appearances with High-A Hudson Valley.

    The 25th overall pick in last year's draft, Jones still isn't at an age-appropriate level, but if he keeps mashing High-A pitching, he could spend a good chunk of the year at Double-A. Jones has an elite 65 percent hard-hit rate and a similarly unsustainable .476 BABIP, but we knew entering the season that he would be an exit velocity darling. The big question is whether he will make enough contact in the upper levels to get to his impressive raw tools.
