May 22-24, 2018 — Inland Empire 66ers (High-A, California League)
Major transition this year to second base, coming in from the outfield; eight weeks into the season, he looks encouragingly good at second. Couple nice plays there in my look; some relatively easy balls, some more moderately difficult, but he executed consistently on everything. Already seems fundamentally sound at second: consistent shovel feeds on double plays, strong footwork to the ball (especially to glove side), good feel for throwing at some of the weird angles at the position, moves back well on pop-ups into shallow right-center field; good work ethic on pre-game early work, should figure to earn more everyday time there going forward. One great diving play up the middle sticks out; also, one more going up the middle on a high chopper with enough arm strength to execute an accurate off-balance cross-body throw. Speed and quickness may allow him to make a few highlight-reel plays there before too long … Speaking of speed, had him 4.13 and 4.17 to first base out of the RHH box this week; 4.50 on the turn at first, 7.78 home to second (running through), 11.40 home to third (sliding triple). Good runner as he’s always been, aggressive on the bases and will take an extra base if it’s given to him; on the move immediately when he gets on … Looks more comfortable in the box this year as opposed to 2017; sitting back better and giving himself a more consistent chance to drive the ball in the air; gotten stronger in the interim and hitting for more pop in pre-game BP; will always be more of a speed guy with some gap-to-gap potential, but I wonder how long it’ll be before he hits a few home runs with the new look at bat … Long term, with the position change, Jahmai Jones is well within reach of a ceiling as an everyday second baseman with the Los Angeles Angels; easy to envision him falling back into a utility/super-utility role behind that, too, depending on how things work out. Bright future ahead and still plenty young; everyday upside from here thanks to a successful transition to second base.
