Originally selected by the Tampa Bay Rays in the tenth round of the 2016 MLB Draft out of the University of Washington, right-handed pitching prospect Spencer Jones has moved quickly through the system, reaching High-A Charlotte in 2017 after spending half the year with Low-A Bowling Green. In 68 innings over 36 relief appearances split between the two levels in 2017, Jones finished 2-4 with five saves, and a 2.25 ERA. He allowed 57 hits and 21 walks against 74 strikeouts and a .223 opponents’ batting average in that span.
After the summer season, the Tampa Bay Rays sent Spencer Jones to the Arizona Fall League to pitch for the Surprise Saguaros, and it’s there that Baseball Census saw him work multiple times in relief.
